B&O American Brasserie Restaurant Review

: Named for the legendary Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) railway line, and located in said railway’s landmark Beaux-Arts headquarters, the B&O American Brasserie looks just as it should: masculine and understatedly sophisticated. Think faux-crocodile walls, rich burgundy accents, and design elements based on vintage dining cars and Golden Age railway terminals. You may even luck into a train-oriented film showing on the big-screen TV. There’s more than atmosphere and nostalgia on tap, though; the upscale comfort menu utilizes eco-friendly ingredients sourced from local produce markets and boutique-scale farms. Chef Matthew Kane’s dishes are both hearty and elegant; signature choices include pork tenderloin with ramp butter smashed potatoes, coq au vin, and rabbit served two ways. Sharable small plates, charcuterie and flatbread pizzas are also part of the mix, and potables are a big deal; bartender Brendan Dorr is a top Baltimore mixologist.
