I am feeling a little sentimental writing this post, realizing that it has been just over a year that I started this blogging thing. And like the Yoga, I’ve stuck with it. Good for me. Back to the matter at hand – Baltimore Magazine and their restaurant list. This year, there is less of a ranking system – just all the restaurants in alphabetical order. Don’t worry, I’m breaking it down…
- Aggio – get the octopus and any of the pastas.
- B & O American Brasserie – holy crap – you need to have the brussels, and beg them to put the donuts on the menue.
- Birroteca – best calamari in the city. Yep… I said it. The Duck Pizza is a highlight.
- The Black Olive – order from the fresh fish board, they filet it tableside.
- Blue Hill Tavern – I love their crab cake, but they also make a really good burger.
- Bookmaker’s Cocktail Club – cocktails… cocktails… cocktails…
- Bottega – you need a rezzi for this tiny place, but everything is good. check out their insta for an idea of what is on the menu for the evening.
- Corner Charcuterie Bar – I like the Corner part more than the charcuterie part, but never disappoints, and often knocks it out of the park.
- Jack’s Bistro – tiny, cute little spot, but a group of two can usually slide in at the bar. Get the Guiness filet.
- Maggies Farm – oh, the donuts. and the burger.
- Ouzo Bay – grilled octopus and the feta… what?
- Parts and Labor – anything. everything. literally.
- Puerto 511 – ceviche… for reals… everyone needs to try this.
- Sotto Sopra – get a salad, and share the pumpkin sausage pasta.
- Tapas Teatro – pitchers of sangria is $10 on Tuesdays.
- Thames Street Oyster House – Obviously, anything from the raw bar, but also the lobster roll and crab cake.
- Wit and Wisdom – any cocktail crafted by Aaron or Jonathan, plus the octopus, meatballs, and or
- Woodberry Kitchen – go for brunch – morning flatbread and french press.
