I’ve been doing a work project in Frederick, Maryland and this place has an amazing foodie scene.  Within a single downtown block, there are about a dozen amazing restaurants.  I’m continually blown away at the quality of the food here.

This picture is from Volt. The Executive Chef is Bryan Voltaggio who was the runner-up in one of the seasons of Top Chef on Bravo.  I did the four-course tasting menu and this was the main course – farm-raised venison with acorn squash, ricotta, and cranberry.
