The Elkridge Furnace Inn made Open Table's 2012 Diners’ Choice Award winners for the 100 most romantic restaurants in the U.S, the only Md. restaurant to make this year's list.
The Elkridge Furnace Inn has since 1998 been in the hands of Daniel Welker, who is also the restaurant's executive chef. The restaurant is part of a 16-acre complex on the Patapsco. The handsomely restored interior rooms are a particular treat for fans of colonial architecture.
