THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Carlyle Club Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Yes, the Carlyle Club sounds like a New York City boîte, famed for martinis and Bobby Short. And its look is supper-club sleek, with romantic banquettes and waiters in formal attire. There’s nothing here to suggest that the Carlyle Club is Baltimore’s first Lebanese restaurant---except the food, which is delightful, right down to the complimentary puffy pita and marinated turnip-and-olive plate that begins each meal. It’s easy to make of meal of meze (appetizers), but if you desire a dinner as classy as the dining room, start with a creamy, complex spiced pumpkin soup, and move on to such intriguing entrée selections as grilled Chilean sea bass with pomegranate sauce; lamb with dates, almonds and yogurt sauce; or grilled eggplant layered with plum tomatoes and fresh basil. Chocolate lava cake is a splendid (if not remotely authentic) finish to a very satisfying Lebanese feast.
