“Baltimore (yeah, Baltimore) can now make rightful claim to having the sexiest third-date spot in America,” Esquire’s Jeff Gordinier wrote.
The Station North French-inspired bistro was featured as no. 18 on Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America in 2019. Twenty-one restaurants from around the country made the list.
“If you have grown weary of “gastronomy” and its countless pretenses, this chill, female-fronted hangout might be your end-of-the-decade antidote. Natural wines get generous pours. Chewy sourdough, baked in-house and drenched obscenely in olive oil, begs for a schmear of chicken livers tickled with Madeira,” Gordinier said.
It’s not the first time Le Comptoir du Vin has made a national best restaurants list.
In September, Bon Appétit listed the bistro on its Hot 10 List.

“One of our goals from the very beginning was to create a space where simple ingredients could shine and a delicious meal could be enjoyed without pomp and circumstance,” the post said.
