About the restaurant
**Our menu currently features a six course Chef's menu only.**


Our six course Chef's menu at Tersiguel's is a combination of authentic French-style cooking and rustic country fare reminiscent of cuisine found in Tersiguel's original home of Brittany, France. Tersiguel's cuisine is reflective of the seasons, with a garden that produces lettuces, herbs, vegetables, fruits and edible flowers. Tersiguel's is quintessential French Country "from the farm to your plate" cooking. Chef Tersiguel describes his food as "French soul food". The Tersiguel family has operated one of the regions best restaurants for over 45 years and continues this tradition with annual ratings of "Best French Restaurant" from the Zagat and Baltimore Magazine.

Perry Hall
About the restaurant
Just a mile and a half from the Avenue in White Marsh you'll find LIBERATORE's of Perry Hall and your host Cosimo Savino. Even if it's beyond your backyard, this member of our family of fine restaurants (established in 2006) is well worth the trip. Vivid colors, an open kitchen, and delicious, homestyle aromas immediately tell you: You've come the right place. In our vibrant and welcoming decor, semi-casual attire is most often the norm, yet it's an ideal setting to celebrate special occasions. In fact, Perry Hall features a spacious private party room for 80 that can be easily divided into two intimate rooms of 30. We have also, on numerous occasions, offered the entire restaurant to host gatherings of 200. The Perry Hall lounge features 6 large plasmas and a hip, cool scene — the perfect place for a Cosmopolitan. The lounge is totally separate from our dining room, offering a great start to the night or a relaxing place to bring the evening to a close.

About the restaurant
If our elaborate two-story design, casual atmosphere, and great service don't tempt you to visit us, our delicious menu will. From traditional homemade lasagna, to our savory lobster tetrazzini, or premium veal saltimbocca, everyone will find a favorite here. Enjoy a great meal while you watch scenes form the Italian Country Side on our Humongous projector screen, largest movie screen of any local restaurant. Or perhaps you prefer to dine in one of our private rooms, perfect for presentation, birthdays, rehearsal diners, anniversaries, etc.

Also, Liberatore's Lounge is a classy place to catch live local music, unwind with a drink (FYI: Best Martini Bar), or catch your favorite game on one of our 7 large screen TVs. While lounging, enjoy our Lite fare Menu or any items from our full menu, but make sure you do not miss our Happy Hour Promotions M-F 4-7 pm.

Whether with family or friends, come and treat yourself to an evening full of flavor and style.
