VOLT gets 2.5 stars from Tom Sietsema, the restaurant reviewer for the Washington Post. He also calls VOLT “one of the most interesting restaurants in the state”.
Volt will come as no surprise to anyone who knows its chef, Bryan Voltaggio, a protege of a celebrity chef in Manhattan (Charlie Palmer) and veteran of some well-known restaurants (Aureole in New York, Charlie Palmer Steak in Washington). Ever since his final year at the Culinary Institute of America in 1999, when he was required to build a restaurant in theory, Voltaggio says, “I always knew I’d end up” in Frederick. The chef was born there. He met his wife there. And now, at age 32 and with the help of a co-owner, he’s feeding its denizens and area chowhounds in a 19th-century mansion that serves as a grand backdrop to one of the most interesting restaurants in the state.
