Gertrude’s Dining Room


John Shields and Marty

Gertrude’s   –  Tucked inside the Baltimore Museum of Art and the stylish dining room with huge windows faces the museum’s sculpture garden.   Gertrude’s is a delight.   Owner and Chef and Writer John Shields is “Out” and a big supporter of the gay community (Gertrude’s hosts the annual “Twilight on the Terrace” benefit fund raising event for the Baltimore Gay Community Center).  Tight on funds and looking for a bargain?   Try Gertrude’s on Wednesday evenings when you’ll find a dozen entrees bargain priced for $12.
