Tersiguel’s – a French Country restaurant in Ellicott City MD.
This is one more post on the theme “culinary Maryland”. Ellicott City is a historic old town close to Baltimore. A joy for the antique hunter, Ellicott City attracted us twice to this restaurant during the last month. Tersiguel’s is a ” French Country ” restaurant founded some decades ago by French immigrants. Today chef, Michel Tersiguel, C.I.A. graduate is keeping the French tradition, with modern touches.
Tersiguel’s is a remodeled old two story house, with three separate dining rooms decorated with old pictures and french faience objects. But what is exceptional and impressive, is the service and the politeness of every single person from the host to the bus boy.
From two different visits, I am bringing today some pictures.
Offered by the chef before the dinner, an amuse bouche, has a different taste every day. This one is cactus.
a different version of the classic Socca Niceoise:
Chick pea crepe with herbed goat cheese garnished with tapendae and roasted pepper salad.
Slow cooked porc served with braised creamed cabbage.
steak with Béarnaise sauce and demi-glace, potatoes Dauphinoise and green beens.
From all the desserts, my favorite is a tart with fresh figs I tried last month. As everything in the restaurant is seasonal, I will have to wait one year to taste this superb creation again.
