La Panetteria has been a Bethesda Landmark for more than 35 years. It has won accolades from food critics and many loyal customers for its superb menu and impeccable service. Cozy, old-fashioned Italian restaurant, serves both northern and southern Italian specialties, with homemade pasta, fresh seafood, veal and chicken dishes and best white pizza in the area. The restaurant invites diners in with a tree shaded street front awning, and an Old Italy atmosphere enhanced by a sunlit indoor atrium with graceful hanging baskets and period paintings on white washed stucco walls. The ceramic tile floor and white tablecloth complete the ambience of a true trattoria. The menu is extensive and features a wide variety of classic Italian dishes, plus daily specials like risottos, veal shank, seafood lasagna, rolattini and Zuppa. If you have a favorite Italian dish you will find it on the menu. La Panetteria means ‘the bakery’ in Italian and all the bread is baked fresh daily.

"Took my daughter and her friends for B.D. as it's her favorite sushi place. Sake cocktails tasty. Took server's recommendations for some of the unusual special items including different types of fish sashimi. Love the seaweed and the jicama salads too. Service attentive and efficient. Another pleasing dining experience."

Dine at the Fourth Estate restaurant at the National Press Club and you'll enjoy great food in a setting rich with history. It is the perfect place for a business lunch, interview or dinner with friends and colleagues. Executive Chef Susan Delbert offers up New American cuisine in a place where famous and newsworthy persons aren't just autographed pictures on the wall, they are probably speaking in the next room! While the venue is historic, the food is rooted in the here and now. Chef Delbert works with organic and small farmers in the Mid-Atlantic region, giving her access to the freshest, most flavorful meats and produce.

"So rare to find a restaurant without the usual DC noise level. Food was a disappointment. Bland veal, undistinguished brown gravy/sauce on top. Crab cake - recommended by the waiter was unimpressive, as was bread and too sweet chocolate tart for dessert."

For parties of five and over please call for reservations.<br /><br />The Elkridge Furnace Inn holds a unique niche in Maryland history. Nestled on the Patapsco River, the Inn was first established as a tavern in 1744. Today, The Elkridge Furnace Inn houses an elegant restaurant with an intimate setting with working fire places in almost every room, lit from fall to early spring. Private parties welcome.

"Stumbled onto this place while looking on line for lunch venue near BWI. Took a friend for a birthday dinner. First thing we noticed, aside from the lovely old house and furnishings was how quiet it was. One of my biggest gripes in DC restaurant scene is the noise levels make it very hard to have a conversation.
Wine list good and not too pricey. Beet salad and french onion soup were excellent. I had pork tenderloin which was very good and friend had mahi mahi - also well prepared with tasty side.
Cholate nut tart was a bit rich. Could offer a bit more on lighter side - maybe lemon or lime as opposed to so much chocolate. Food prices are a bit steep, but this was a special occasion. And, there's plenty of parking.

"This restaurant has been around for a long time and it's been consistent with good food and service. The fish of the day and the veal were tasty and well-prepared."
