Roy’s - 720 B Aliceanna Street, Baltimore, MD 21202

Sometimes things line up just right. We’d been waiting for ages to sort out a dog with a shelter. One placement agency wanted $350 for a puppy we had seen online. We saw the same puppy for $175 on another placement agency. Ridiculous, but eventually the little mutt was ours. The same day, we decided we would go to Roy’s, on arriving home we found a nice surprise in our mailbox. It was a Roy’s gift card for $20. Honestly, we had just made the booking that day, so there was no way they had the opportunity to send the card after we made the reservation. The stars were just in alignment!

We’ve been to Roy’s a couple of times before, mostly for the Chocolate Soufflé. This time I went with the fixed price menu. You can’t argue with such a bargain, especially with $20 off! I had Satay Sirloin for the starter, Pork Pot Roast for main, and of course the Chocolate Soufflé for dessert. The wife had the short ribs. We shared the soufflé.

I definitely enjoyed the set menu, it was a lot of food. I dont think the wife would have managed it all, so just main dish was just right for her.

I like to think of myself as a man’s man. I usually choose a pint of beer over a glass of wine. But at Roy’s the cocktails are pretty impressive, so I plumped for one. Of course, I can’t tell you what it was called, I have know idea about cocktails, honest! It had the desired effect though, it seemed strong and was quite tasty. The wife had a glass of the house wine. She enjoyed it.

The clientele is like some of the other restaurants we’ve been to recently, quite a few J Crew wearing Ralph Lauren wannabes. It doesn’t get the trendy’s like some other places. But, the atmosphere wasn’t as stuff as with some of the other recent reviews.

We will definitely be back, even without a Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent, and we hope we’ll get another gift card soon.
