Restaurant Review: Four Seasons Grille

by Heidi on April 30, 2013

Earlier this winter, in the old Austin Grill space at Westfield Annapolis, in what I call the mall wasteland, opened up a new gem. Generally, when you think mall eating, you think fast food or chain restaurants. Four Seasons Grille gives a fine dining atmosphere with the convenience of being able to get in and get out in a timely fashion or a nice place to catch a break in the middle of shopping.

Last week, Adam and I hit up this joint for Annapolis Beer Week last week when they had a $10 burger (or flat bread pizzas) and beer night. It wasn’t the first time we visited, but it definitely set in stone that it would be a staple for us.

For appetizers I’ve enjoyed the chicken lettuce wraps which are delightfully full of flavor with a touch of asian spice. I usually steer clear of appetizers in general (because I’m cheap and I like to save my appetite for the main course) but the couple that I’ve tried have been delicious and the rolls that are brought out are always warm and the olive oil pesto tomato dip accompaniment is the perfect touch.

As for entrees, the burgers are great (get them medium considering they tend to run a little on the rare side), but I love the pasta dishes and the flatbread pizzas. The menu has a great variety and if you’re looking to save some money, check out their weekly specials which include a pasta night ($11.99) and a steak night ($16.99).

The Yelp reviews are slightly mixed and I have to agree with most of them. The service we’ve had has been great, they’re very accommodating to us with baby. Go for the bread, the ambiance and because you really can’t beat the location! (Not to mention, they’re owned by the same folks who own Squisito and Dimeo’s – two of our favorite pizza joints in town so you know it’s gotta be decent!)

Not Annapolis based? No worries, they’ve got a location in Waugh Chapel in Crofton as well!

Free Yoga in the Inner Harbor

by Heidi on April 23, 2013

I’m not one to trek up to Baltimore, but I did get a little bit excited when I saw this in the recent newsletter from Charm City Yoga.

Free yoga on the Inner Harbor? Sounds like a great way to start a Sunday if you ask me.

Where: West Shore Park, right between the Science Center and the Visitor’s Center
When: Sunday’s 8:30-9:30am starting May 26th.
Register: Not required but you can email you’ll find out if there are any weather related cancellations with a pre-registration.

I might have to make a trip or two up there this summer because nothing screams summer more than a free outdoor yoga class.


Two become three…

Six days ago, Adam and I became parents welcoming Ethan John Schmidt into our lives and our hearts. Really, we couldn’t be happier.

I’m super excited to join the mama crowd in Annapolis. You can already find me on BaltimoreMommies - a great network for mom’s in the greater Baltimore area. Additionally, if you have any mom resources in the Annapolis/Greater Baltimore area, feel free to email me!
