In Bal’more Crab Takes the Cake

So if anybody wants to get me something, get me 60 crabs – one for each year. I don’t want no diamonds, I don’t want no shoes, I don’t want no party. I want some crabs.– Patti LaBelle Maryland is known for many things like our own Baltimore based baseball team (Orioles), our own football team (Ravens), hot steamy humidity, horse racing, beautiful golf courses and much much more like our Baltimore Flamingos Rugby Team along with Baltimore’s own Beehive Hon ladies. We may be challenged, but no one can challenge us for having awesome Maryland crabs. Please follow and […]

Earth Wood & Fire

Earth Wood & Fire21407 Clarkview Road, Baltimore410-200-9858 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 […]

The Baltimore Eagle

The Baltimore Eagle2022 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21218410-200-9858 • TheBaltimoreEagle.com 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 […]

A Well-Kept Secret

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

The Elephant924 North Charles Street, Baltimore443-447-4848 • theelephantbaltimore.com 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

Nando’s Peri-Peri109 Joppa Road, Towson, MDNandosperiperi.com • 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 […]

Brew House no. 16

Brew House no. 16831 North Calvert Street, BaltimoreBrewhouseno16.com • 410-659-4084 As a pedestrian walking through historic Mount Vernon, it was exciting to see the restoration of the old fire station on the corner of Read and Calvert. It had stood abandoned for quite some time before the Hummel family decided to renovate and open the Brew House. Neighbors are excited to have a new dining establishment in the neighborhood. For one reason or another, we hadn’t been able to get over there for more than a beer since the grand opening, but we decided to meet some friends there for […]

Jerry’s Tavern

Jerry’s Tavern5928 York RoadBaltimore, MD 21212 • 410-435-8600 Having lived in the Belvedere Square area for a little bit of time, I must have walked past Jerry’s Tavern many, many times, and just never went inside.  On a night where we were looking to eat out, our original destination was fully booked with reservations, so Jerry’s turned out to be our “Plan B”.  I had no idea what to expect, but when we walked in, it felt like a step back in time, maybe the 1970’s era? Picture the paneled walls, well-worn carpet, and sort of a darkish ambiance. But, […]
