Executive chef Daniel Henry, formerly of The Capital Grille in Baltimore, will be offering upscale cuisine at Towson Tavern, which opened this week.
To start, the restaurant has a light-fare menu ($4-12) with items including black-truffle, sea-salt popcorn; grilled shrimp with arugula and shallot relish; and petite lamb porterhouse with Israeli couscous, caramelized red onions, feta, and black-lava sea salt. An expanded, seasonal menu will be available in the spring after a kitchen expansion, according to a press release.
Towson Tavern is owned by brothers Brian and Scott Recher, who also operate Recher Theater and the Rec Room and Patio in Towson.
I couldn’t find a website, but the restaurant’s address is 516 York Rd.
There’s a bit of history also attached to the restaurant. The name Towson Tavern is a tribute to the original establishment run by Ezekiel Towson in the 1760s. It’s believed by many to be the place that put Towson on the map as a commercial center.
