Continuing to fill your mouth with bland, nondescript foods will only lead to it uncontrollably shouting out your PIN numbers and the secret locations of your Ace Of Base CDs. Keep your palate quiet (save for the “mmmmms”) with this deal, which gets you $30 worth of small plates, salads, sandwiches and eclectic entrees for only $15 at Leelynn’s in Ellicott City.
Just off Highway 108 but miles from the ordinary, Leelynn’s features New American cuisine in a cozy bistro atmosphere. Share small plates like Shrimp & Scallop Mac ’n Cheese with an Old Bay cream sauce, sherry and orecchiette pasta; Flash-Fried Calamari with jicama salad and sweet chili drizzle; or Steak & Potato, a 4oz grilled sirloin served with roasted fingerling potatoes and rosemary gremolata. Mesclun greens, dried cranberries, chèvre and candied walnuts populate their Winter Salad, while the Leelynn’s Burger is a half-pound fire-grilled phenomena topped with applewood-smoked bacon, Swiss, garlic mayo, and A.1. sauce. Entrees include pan-seared Rockfish; grilled Pork Tenderloin with apple chutney; and their award-winning Crab Cake, served with sweet potato fries.
