Earth Wood & Fire
21407 Clarkview Road, Baltimore

Maybe I’m spoiled having lived in New York until I was ten. When it comes to pizza, I have a high standard. Admittedly, I have yet to taste any pizza I like as much as Phil’s Pizza in Massapequa, Long Island, and believe me, I’ve tried. So with that background, let’s move on to our dining experience at Earth Wood & Fire. It was a busy Wednesday evening, the dining area was completely filled, so we were seated at a high-top table over by the bar. We were pleasantly surprised how spacious the bar area is – not at all cramped.

The Baltimore Eagle
2022 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218
410-200-9858 •

Typically, on a Friday night, we would have dinner out before hitting the bar for a few drinks. However, now that the Eagle has opened its kitchen, we could dine AND drink all at once.  As most people that have been to the Eagle already know, there was a great deal of hype and anticipation for the food to roll out.  We had heard about the credentials of Master Chef Scholly, which include accomplishments, such as earning the 1996 German Master Chef of the Year, and of some of his clients of music royalty, i.e. Madonna, Springsteen, McCartney, Diamond, and Brooks. He even served the President Who Shall Not Be Named, before he became The President Who Shall Not Be Named.  Now it was time to finally try some of his offerings at the Eagle.

When Nick and I were invited to the Underground Kitchen launch in Baltimore earlier in the week, we had no idea what fun and adventure was in store. The Underground Kitchen is a secret supper club that hosts pop-up dinners in various locations. The idea originated in Richmond, Virginia, and later expanded into the Mid-Atlantic. On March 20th and 21st, the Underground Kitchen, the “ultra-luxe, super-secret, pop-up dining society featuring buzzed-about chefs, unconventional locations, and tickets that routinely sell out within minutes” came to Baltimore.

The Elephant
924 North Charles Street, Baltimore
443-447-4848 •

Nick had always told me about his memories of The Brass Elephant. He was excited to see renovations heralding its reopening as The Elephant after more than five years of closure. We’d received a gift card to dine there for our wedding and were looking forward to the visit. The idea was to enjoy a nice, quiet dinner for two, and spend some quality time as a couple.

Nando’s Peri-Peri
109 Joppa Road, Towson, MD • 410-832-1380

Last time we had ventured over to the mall in Towson, we noticed a new restaurant coming in, Nando’s Peri-Peri. While it’s now been open quite a while, we hadn’t ventured inside until last week, mainly because on weekends it’s so busy. We were lucky last week and found a quiet time on a weekday evening. Nando’s plays in that space between a fast-food joint and a full table-service restaurant. Much like Pei Wei, ordering is done at the register and a server brings your meals when ready. For those unfamiliar, Nando’s serves South African cuisine, and is mostly known for chicken, with a other offerings as well.
