Lunch at the Lunchbox

Posted on

OK, so Frederick isn’t Hoco, but for those of us in West Hoco, it isn’t far to get there. Sometimes, with less traffic, I can be at the Costco or Wegmans there in less than half an hour. We had some errands to run this morning, and the weather wasn’t cooperating when it came to doing things around here.

We decided to check out Lunchbox. If you are a Top Chef fan, you know about Bryan Voltaggio and Volt. This past November, he opened a lunch place on Carroll Creek.

The menu is fairly simple. Soups, salads, pressed sandwiches, desserts. Decor is fun, too.

The sodas are a treat, like Cheerwine.

Little touches of whimsy like the bottle openers above the containers, and crates with “free” apples. Buy lunch, get an apple.

I did not take a picture of my meatloaf sandwich. Not great looking, but so tasty. I did like the set up in the corner that says it all.

Oh, and in good weather, you can dine al fresco with no views of parking lots or storm water management ponds. Frederick is really fun to visit. Take a trip out some day.


About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. Glad you had a nice visit to our not so little corner of Maryland!

    • I love Frederick. We have a few friends there. Last year one of them sang the National Anthem at a Keys game. We enjoy going to games there. My hubby goes to amateur radio dinners there. And, professional association dinners at the Red Horse.

      What’s not to love? You live in a great city. Flying Dog. McCutcheon’s. Yum!
