I know that high end dining in Howard County starts with Tersiguel's, but I haven't been there yet. Fancy spots are a blind spot for me. My budget doesn't rise to French food often, and we often driving into the city when we splurge.
What is your local place for a super-special night out? Tersiguels? King's Contrivance? Iron Bridge? Why? What makes it worth the check -- and worth passing up great places in Harbor Place or downtown DC?
