Frederick, MD – 5/15/16 – Volt

Like so many others I had wanted to go to Volt since the Voltaggio brothers came onto my radar on Season 6 of Top Chef.  It seemed unlikely based on the location but then my brother conveniently moved to Frederick.   His time there ended up being rather short, but I was able to get it in before he moved.  My sister-in-law and I enjoyed an absolutely lovely joint pre-birthday brunch.  Both of our first courses were absolutely perfect for summer and dishes that I could eat everyday.  I loved my Maytag blue cheese based dessert as I would choose cheese over a sweet dessert any day. But that said, I did still love our special birthday dessert!
