Coho Grill, overlooking Hobbit’s Glen Golf Course in Columbia, Maryland welcomed a new chef owner, Thomas Zippelli on July 1st. Chef Zippeli has a very impressive CV: Bachelor of Culinary Arts from Johnson and Wales, worked 3 years, not a week’s stagiaire, 3 years under 3 Michelin Star chef Daniel Humm at Eleven Madison Park in New York and 2 ½ years under Chef Thomas Keller, another 3 Michelin Star chef of the world renowned The French Laundry. I did say impressive and I don’t lie.
My food curiosity is up and a trip to Coho Grill is on my itinerary and probably should be on yours. A look at their regular dinner menu lends insight into a moderately priced bistro, casual dining operation.
A good time to taste Coho Grill is during Howard County Restaurant Week starting on Monday, July 18th through Monday, August 1st where you can enjoy a two course lunch for $25 or three course dinner for $35. The dishes available during restaurant week will include Chicken Breast with a Sweet Corn Porridge, Sunflower Seeds, Pickled Cherries and a Celery Salad; Grilled Peach Salad with Goat Cheese, Arugula, Prosciutto and Balsamic Vinegar; and Potted Chocolate Mousse with a Cookie Crumble.
Open for lunch - Monday through Friday, Dinner-Tuesday through Sunday, Brunch - on the weekends and a special Bar Menu from Tuesday through Sunday. Dine inside or outside overlooking Hobbit’s Glen.
