Set in a cottage surrounded by a tiered garden, this beyond-sweet gastropub has been luring romantics to Potomac, Maryland for almost 100 years. And since Nick Palermo’s arrival in 2011, the food is on par with the experience. His crave-worthy menu warrants a midweek getaway: fresh oysters, bowls of Thai-spiced mussels, rack of lamb, a killer cheeseburger, and hot apple crisp. If you plan to Uber home, explore the collection of single malts after dinner.
