The strum of a banjo or the jangling of spurs would not be out of place at Gunner’s Grille at Taneytown, where wood planks line the walls and wagon-wheel fixtures flank the dining room. Gunner––owner Brooke Haggerty’s father––receives homage as Brooke and crew serve his favorite comfort foods, among them New England clam chowder and grilled cheese and tomato sandwich on potato bread. While the kitchen staff smothers chicken-fried steak with creamy gravy and the parsley baked potatoes with butter, Brooke has revamped other comforting classics to be healthier, blending bison and turkey into the meatloaf muffins, and stacking burgers with turkey or veggie patties. The kitchen staff procures as many local ingredients as possible, with some area farmers tending crops exclusively for the eatery. Beef and turkey arrives on the doorstep every day, and seafood flies in three times a week, hitching a ride with the storks. Diners can complement their meals with one of 60 beers or 50 wines, or the occasional musical act.
Owners Bruno and Jimmy fill Mamma Lucia’s kitchen with housemade Italian family recipes. At each of the eight locations, chefs mix and match myriad pastas and sauces such as penne in pink sauce or chicken pesto ravioli in a creamy pesto sauce. Chicken and veal can be dipped in egg and sautéed in a lemon-and-wine sauce or prepared in any of 15 other ways. In the dining room, servers happily deliver New York–style pizzas to tables or to passing taxicabs full of lost Brooklyn residents.
