The Paddock Hotel & Restaurant was located in the Patuxent Building at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Main Street in the early 1950s. In hindsight, with “paddock” being a nod to the nearby horse races, I’m not sure that was the best name for a restaurant “known for the finest steaks”… In fact, some of their print ads even featured cartoons of horses!
