Chewing The Fat With Chef Neill Howell Of The Corner Pantry

1 Written by: | Thursday, Apr 23, 2015 2:05pm

When I first met Chef Neill Howell at a preview dinner at The Corner Pantry, I was immediately impressed. From the moment I walked in, Neill, his wife Emily and their staff were warm, engaging and excited to have us there and after that first visit, I was anxious to come back. And I did. Again and again. Lunch, espressos, take out dinner on the way home, cooking classes and more. The decor, the vibe, the people – it all works. (Do NOT miss their Friday special – Fish & Chips…with the most delicious mushy peas in all of the land.) In just over a year, they have cultivated a great little following by making approachable, creative, tasty food, all with housemade ingredients. Seriously, you need the fish & chips in your life. #friday

Harbor East Loses Restaurant, Gains Giant Starbucks

Earlier this year, Latin restaurant Talara announced it was closing. The simultaneous shuttering of Chazz made foodies question how many restaurants Harbor East could hold. While there may not be room in the development for tapas, there is room for a massive Starbucks. Read More →

Moveable Feast Benefit at Union Craft Brewing 4/23

Moveable Feast
is a wonderful organization which supports people in need in Baltimore. From their website, this sticks with me:

“Imagine, for a moment, that today you found out you were HIV positive or had breast cancer. What would you do first? Who would you tell? Where would you turn for help? Now try to imagine how you would cope if you were also on disability, supporting a family or partner, suffering the ravages of chemotherapy or cocktail therapy and unable to earn a paycheck. Or maybe you are completely on your own with no one to help you out on those inevitable difficult days. Nobody should have to deal with all of that alone.” Amen.

We are pretty darn lucky here in Baltimore to have several lovely places to dine and drink with a water view. Now that the temperatures are rising, one of my favorites — Wit & Wisdom — is officially opening for the season this Wednesday, April 22. But this is not just any old opening. Oh, no. That would just be too boring. Executive Chef Zack Mills will host six local guests chefs for “Chefs Behind Bars” – and the chefs will all be making cocktails! (I love cocktails, did you know that?)

The Horse You Came In On is Maryland’s Most Iconic Bar, says Thrillist

horsecameThe esteemed listicle compilers over at Thrillist endeavored to name the most iconic bar in every state (and DC). They sought to narrow it down by using three criteria: (1) open since 1990 (but really the older the better), (2) famous and (3) still loved. In the end, Maryland’s winner was Fells Point’s The Horse You Came In on Saloon. Read More →

Chewing The Fat with Chris Scanga of Petit Louis Bistro

1 Written by: | Friday, Apr 17, 2015 10:10am

Every once in a while, I meet a Baltimore chef who’s actually from Baltimore. That’s nice. They already know the city, understand the vibe. It has to be hard to come into a city you’re not from and really understand your audience…that takes some time. Chris Scanga of Petit Louis had a leg up. He grew up here and went to Calvert Hall College (you know, that “Where’d you go to school question…) and then onto CIA. He knew he wanted to be a chef.
