National Aquarium Fresh Thoughts

Each dinner of the series is themed around sustainable seafood, and will feature a cocktail reception, cooking demonstration by the guest chef, and a fine dining experience that includes a four-course menu created solely for the event. Guests are invited to come early to explore the exhibits, including Blacktip Reef!

Ryleigh’s Oyster House, located in historic Federal Hill, specializes in serving fresh, quality seafood, meat, poultry, and produce in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant has been recognized by the Restaurant Association of Maryland as one of the “Stars of the Industry” and received praise from The Baltimore Sun, Baltimore City Paper and WJZ.

Executive Chef Patrick Morrow will host an oyster-themed dinner on September 24, 2013.

The Capital Grille, located in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, is famous for its dry-ages steaks, exceptional seafood and award-winning wine list. The restaurant has been named to OpenTable’s Best American Cuisine Top 50 List, and has received accolades from WineSpectator and UrbanSpoon.

The Capital Grille will host a dinner on November 19, 2013.

Tickets for each dinner are $79 for National Aquarium members and $99 for non-members.
