Elkridge Furnace Inn: Fine Dining, Historic Setting

"We're trying to do as much garden-to-table and handmade food as possible," said executive chef Daniel Wecker.


The  on Furnace Avenue has a building older than the United States, according to executive chef Daniel Wecker.

"We're part of a historic complex," Wecker told Patch, citing the original furnace structure, which was built in 1744, and two wood buildings he believes were once slaves' quarters.

Wecker makes sure the menu for his restaurant is anything but rustic, as he constantly adds new items with the changing seasons.

"We have several gardens here–all organic–and at least one component out of a menu item is coming out of the garden," Wecker said.

In addition to growing vegetables, restaurant employees have ramped up efforts to butcher some of their own meat, smoke meat and offer more handmade foods on the menu.

The Elkridge Furnace Inn also caters parties, weddings, wine tastings and murder mystery dinners.
