Stanford Kitchen’s impressive menu features a tasty salmon

There’s a new restaurant in town and I was there to check it out a few days before the official opening. It’s Stanford Kitchen, located in the spot previously occupied by Stone’s Cove. The exact address is 10997 Owings Mills Blvd, directly in front of Stevenson University.
It is owned by the Blueridge Restaurant Group, with their other locations being in Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, Glenarden and Orlando Florida. All these are known as Copper Canyon Grill.
They are also located in Columbia and Rockville, these are known as Stanford Grill.

Bread Pudding

I was very impressed by my first visit.  For one thing, the place is totally different in design from Stone’s Cove. Obviously, a lot of money was spent in designing this to fit into the style of the other locations. There are windows on two sides, outside dining and a kitchen you can see into.

My first meal was the salmon. Those of you who have read my past restaurant features know I love salmon but should on occasion try other dishes. To those, I say mind your own business. The salmon was delicious.
When I asked various staff members what they considered their signature item, they all responded with the ribs. I am not a rib eater generally, but having tasted the ones here, well let’s just say, I would order them again ($23.00).


They come with french fries and cole slaw. The signature dessert is the bread pudding with Grand Marnier sauce ($7.00). The entree coming in a close second was the slow roasted chicken.

Stanford Kitchen is open seven days for lunch and dinner. It can seat about 120. Louis, the general manager, described this as upscale casual. That means come in dressed nicely and be prepared for a good meal served by a trained staff.
He also mentioned just about all meals are made from scratch. As an aside, have you ever wondered why they came up with the word scratch? No, OK, forget it.
You’ll have your choice of tables or booths or you can grab a seat at the bar. There are 2 TV’s there. Be advised, when the restaurant is crowded it can be a tad noisy.
This is a great addition to the Owings Mills area, but certainly worth a visit from anyplace in and around the city. By the way, plenty of free parking.
