Mr. Jennie took me to a Tapas place in Frederick, Maryland last night. Wow! It's called Isabella's, and is owned by ... wait for it ... a Turk. Seriously. The guy and his partners own several Frederick restaurants, including Brewer's Alley.
In any event, Isabella's is fabulous! Probably the best dish we had (and the most popular, according to the waiter) was the dates stuffed with chorizo wrapped in bacon and batter fried with a sweet creamy goat cheese sauce. OMG!!!
" /> Fantastic! We started out, though, with venison slices in a rich gravy with walnuts and pomegranate seeds. Also, sliced duck breast on crispy salad greens. Those were terrific, but so was the baked brie slice on toast, topped with a fresh grilled orange slice with toasted sesame seeds and flaked almonds. Mmmmmmmm! We had such a great time, and finished up with coffee and a plate of Spanish cheeses. What a night!
