Blue Grotto opened in the heart of Towson a few months ago, and I finally had a chance to visit the restaurant/lounge last night. The menu leans toward Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, though there’s a casual section with wings, poppers, and chicken tenders.
I have to say it’s one of the most interesting eating spots in Towson. The restaurant has that industrial chic vibe going on with tall ceilings, dark blue walls, and ultra mod furnishings. It’s in the spot where Sunny Surplus used to be and has come a long way from its camouflage/Army regulation roots.
You can read more about the food in our June issue. But in the meantime, I have to tell you that Blue Grotto has a great happy hour from 4-7 p.m. with $2 domestic beers, $2 off rail drinks, and $3 house wines (huge pours).
You can expect Towson University students in the mix of diners, but manager Alex Ducat said that the restaurant is going after "upscale, classier college kids. It’s not just the typical Towson bar." Check it out.
