Baltimore's Restaurant Scene

catch of the day fish (2)Few spots in Baltimore are as effortlessly romantic as Fells Point. And few restaurants as well-regarded as Waterfront Kitchen, where chef Jerry Pellegrino prepares exquisite “seed-to-plate” fare that’s seasonally focused and as locally sourced as possible. With stunning views and great atmosphere, it’s a perfect spot for your Valentine’s Day dinner reservations (which you might want to make just about…now). The special Valentine’s Day menu features a prix fixe menu for two– with optional wine pairings. It’s elegantly presented fare that sticks to classic flavors and dishes that will warm you to the core. But that’s not the only reason it’s a great pick. Read More →

Claudia was a very popular server and beloved team member. We are incredibly sad and will miss her greatly.” Read more here.

It was a mere four months ago that the Huffington Post decided Baltimore was a great place to visit. I guess they felt as though people didn’t get the message, because they’re at it again, with a list of “10 reasons why Baltimore should be your next weekend getaway.”

MICA Named 10th ‘Most Hipster’ Campus in US

MICA, 10th most hipster campus in US

I am so glad Baltimore magazine brought this list of “The 10 Most Hipster Campuses 2014″ to my attention. I may have otherwise never had a chance to read these opening sentences: “Hipsters appreciate more than rocking flannel and chugging Pabst Blue Ribbon. They also appreciate skinny jeans, bands you never heard of and, above all, a place of higher learning where they’re able to find like-minded individuals.”

Remember, people, hipsters are not just about the flannel and Pabst! They’re also way, way about the jeans! (It’d have to be about more than flannel and PBR, or else most of my Northern New York redneck relatives — whom I adore — would qualify.) Read More →

Wow! Dinosaur Bar-B-Que to Come to Fells Point!

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

Baltimore, this is the best restaurant news I’ve heard in a long while. The biker- and blues-oriented barbecue chain Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is finally venturing south of New Jersey. And Fells Point is going to be its first location!

When you think of great American barbecue, you probably don’t think of Upstate New York, but you should! The original Dinosaur location in Syracuse was crowned America’s best barbecue by Good Morning America in 2009. And as crazy as that may sound, it is not undeserved. In fact, it was a long time coming. I can tell you from experience that their ribs, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, salmon fritters, and fried green tomatoes are all show stoppers.

According to the Baltimore Business Journal, the 8,295 square-foot space at 1401 Fleet Street will seat 251 (including 19 at the bar). The restaurateurs will meet with the liquor board on Sept. 4.

Meet Baltimore’s First Female Bricklayer

Bricklaying is a predominantly male profession; that was even more true 40 years ago, when Baltimorean Barbara Moore got her start. “It was kind of rough at first ’cause, you know, a lot of the older guys didn’t think I should be there and I was taking a job from a man,” Moore said in an NPR StoryCorps interview with her daughter, Olivia Fite. “But I believed that I could do that job.”

Sellers loved this home!  Here are a few of their favorite things:

Walk to EVERYTHING. Water, Harbor East, Canton, Patterson Park, Hopkins, and of course Fells Point Square. Don’t forget about the FESTIVALS and concerts and open air movies all summer long.  If you’re a sports fan, you know when the Os win because you can hear the fireworks. Speaking of fireworks: watching July 4, New Years, and Flag Day fireworks from the roof deck.  The fun doesn’t stop when the weather gets cold- Parade of Boats, Santa’s tugboat arrival, Olde Tyme Christmas keeps things toasty  in the winter.  If you love entertaining, parties, parties, parties all year long in the big backyard!
