THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Clementine Restaurant Review

: Clementine offers the kind of “fusion” seen too infrequently in the culinary world: it’s a truly family-friendly, fine-dining restaurant. As darling as its name suggests, Clementine already looks like a longtime neighborhood fixture, with its vintage black-and-white signage, ceiling fans, local art, an expansive second dining room, and a well-equipped, cozy play area just for the kids. The restaurant is a family affair for owners Winston Blick and wife Cristin Dadant --- there are many family recipes in the mix --- and the service is warm and casual. The dinner menu, though, is serious stuff. A definite "must" is the house-made charcuterie platter; entrées (which change daily) have included pan-roasted rockfish with black quinoa and braised rabbit stroganoff. And if this all sounds a bit fancy for your kids, order them one of Blick’s specialties: macaroni and cheese. Daily specials include tacos on Tuesdays, burgers and $15 entrées on Wednesdays, and wine flights on Thursdays. Wine, beer and creative cocktails are served.

Great Food - Very Family Friendly

Really creative menu. Definitely "fusion" as the review says. Tuesday nights is "Taco Tuesdays." The kids area is great if you have young ones in tow. They still allow you to bring your own booze, but they now have a mixed drink menu. It can be a little bit of a drive if you're south of B-more and the neighborhood may look questionable to some, but the food is absolutely worth the effort. It's easy to see that these guys will be around for a long time to come if they keep doing what they're doing now!
