Make your reservations now – Cunningham’s opens November 22

The Bagby Restaurant Group has another hit on its hands; Cunningham’s in Towson, their first  endeavor outside of Baltimore City.  Located in the high rise building, Towson City Center, 1 Olympic Place where Joppa and York Roads almost converge on the round-about. 

After attending the media cocktail hour and the friends and family soft-opening  left no doubt in my mind that this will be the place “to see and be seen.” The décor, impeccable as is their TenTen and Fleet Street Kitchen restaurants. The food, which I would describe as home-style with an urban twist, offers raw and chilled seafood, wood-oven flatbreads, selection of dishes to be shared the likes of steak tartare to housemade charcuterie.  I enjoyed their pretzel encrusted fried oysters from their appetizer selections and the husband enjoyed the chicken pot pie.  The Dorchester county jumbo lump crab cakes followed what we consider traditional sides; cole slaw and fries but theirs had the variation with pickled celery root rémoulade accompanied with a copper Moscow mule filled with house cut fries.  During the media cocktail hour I got to sample their onion rings with kimchi aioli, the best onion rings EVER! How good, I ordered them the next night during the soft opening. Ooh, ooh – if you are a dessert person, get their ice cream sundae; vanilla ice cream, chocolate-cherry sauce, brownie bites, caramel corn, whipped cream, amarena cherry.
