This cocktail was made at Tark’s Grill, which is located in an area affectionately referred to as the “The Station”. So if you are from out of town, it is Greenspring Station. Tark’s is a favorite of many in the Lutherville area. On warm days and nights you can eat outside in the courtyard surrounded by flowers, bushes and a water fountain. What better way to woo your girl, than to be eating outside with that environment. Inside there are three parts to the restaurant, the formal seating area, the bar with it’s own eating area and a private eating area. Tark’s Grill is modeled on the traditional American Bistro with an emphasis on succulent aged steaks and local seafood favorites.
