The “Grandview Penthouse” closed the first week of June, 2014. The view of Baltimore was fantastic and definitely “grand”. I only hope that someone else takes over the space and makes a go of it!
The “Grandview Penthouse” sits on the top of a 15 story senior citizen residence on top of a hill in Hampden surrounded by windows on three sides.
Result? You can eat a good meal and enjoy a 180+ degree of Baltimore that will knock your socks off. “Grand View” seems some how inadequate… Early morning, mid-day, sunset or dark of night each offers a fantastic view of Baltimore.
With a view like it has to offer, you might suspect that a dinner at “Grandview Penthouse” could cost put a serious dent in your wallet. Not so. WIth a wide range of sandwiches, salads, “made here” soups, and more all priced from $8-$12, you can enjoy the awesome view without being worried about paying your bills!
John started dinner with a cup of the “made here” cream of crab soup (just $4). Smooth and creamy with pieces of crab, it proved a great beginning to his meal. For his main course, John had a Philly style Cheese Steak sandwich. For $9, it got a big 8″ sub stuffed with steak (cooked medium as requested) and fried onions covered in a layer of melted provolone cheese with a heaping pile of hot freshly cooked fries. Delish! <Smile>
My friend Bob splurged on a crab cake sandwich with chips ($12). He was pleased to find out that the big crab cake had virtually no filler and he concluded that that it was very reasonably priced for what he got.
John spied a piece of delicious looking coconut cake going to a nearby table. The waitress confirmed that it was “made here” and garnered lots of compliments since it appeared the day before. For $3.50, John couldn’t resist and took home a slice for trying later. It proved to be a luscious “Thumbs Up!” cake (giving some competition to John’s favorite coconut cake served by Jennings Cafe in Catonsville)
