Antrim 1844 Smokehouse Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Executive chef Michael Gettier has found a delightful country home in Taneytown, where he brings his signature French style to Richard and Dorothy Mollett's Antrim 1844. The hotel's prix-fixe, multi-course format remains the same: the evening begins with drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres in the drawing room as you settle into this restored plantation house, now an antique-filled bed-and-breakfast. Dinner begins at 7 p.m. Then you relax in a high-backed chair in front of a roaring fire, sip a wine from the restaurant's cellar, and let the panoply of a felicitous meal play out before you. Your choices from the six-course menu will arrive in gracious style, starting, say, with a tian of veal tenderloin and foie gras, to be followed by a butternut-and-arugula salad, an intermezzo and then an entrée, such as filet of sea bass wrapped in lobster mousse. Plates of varied desserts to share cap the extravaganza. The evening ends all too soon, but the memory lingers. Smart diners reserve a room for the night to save re-entry into the cold, cruel world for the bright light of day.
