After 2010 Rising Star Chef Bryan Voltaggio rose through the ranks of Charlie Palmer’s restaurant empire, he decided to take his extensive training at elite restaurants like New York’s Aureole and DC’s Charlie Palmer Steak and bring it back to his hometown of Frederick, Maryland. VOLT is a hip, sophisticated find worthy of a big city, but nestled unexpectedly in the picturesque town of Frederick, housed in a nineteenth century brownstone mansion. Here Voltaggio’s support of local farmers and purveyors is boundless, and he uses the rich offerings of Maryland agriculture to showcase local, seasonal produce using innovative technique. Sommelier Neil Dundee rises to the challenge of the extensive tasting menus. Voltaggio’s culinary homecoming has been a long time coming—but worth the wait for his spin on modern American.
