Last Sunday was a beautiful fall day here in Maryland. My husband and I wanted to get out of the house and enjoy the nice weather before it gets cold out. We decided to try the new restaurant in town that I have heard some great things about, called Bolder.
Bolder recently opened during the second week of October. It is located on the Howard County side of Mt. Airy, Maryland. More specifically Bolder is located on Frederick road, also known as 144. They have a great patio with outdoor seating. Since it was such a beautiful day outside my husband and I decided to sit out on the patio. Next time we go we will have to check out the inside of the restaurant and the bar. The menu focus is American cuisine with bold flavors and seasonal rotations.
Bolder has a great drink menu with some unique seasonal creations. I had a hard time deciding between trying their “Hard Cider Sangria” or the “Mason Jar Crush” which is one of their specialty drinks. I finally decided on the “Mason Jar Crush” and my husband had a “Jailbreak Feed the Monkey” which was a seasonal draft beer.
The menu has a great assortment of starters, salads, sandwiches, burgers, and entrees.
We decided to try the “Wanton Seared Tuna Tacos” to start. The wanton taco shells were filled with a pineapple salsa and topped with the seared ahi tuna. They definitely had a bold delicious flavor!
For our meals, my husband had the “Knob Creek Burger”. It was listed on the menu as one of their specialties. It had bacon, onion straws, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce all piled on top of the burger patty. My husband said it was cooked perfectly and he did let me try one bite, so I did get to taste how good it was. 🙂
I had the “Turkey Brie” sandwich. It was piled so high I could hardly bite into it! The sandwich was packed with turkey and had nice big chunks of brie cheese on it which I love! I will definitely get this sandwich again sometime.
We will certainly be back to Bolder to try some of their other menu items. If you are in the Mt. Airy area and are looking for a new restaurant to try head over to Bolder and check them out!
