Red Star Bar & Grill

I imagine tourists rarely walk down Fells street in Fells point.  But, I think they got their name from when sailors used to dock in the harbor.  Maybe that is why I like this place, the exposed brick, the history, and the fact that you can often grab a seat at the bar and a few drinks. There is a slightly more sophisticated and cultivated feel at Red Star, compared to most of Fells Point.  But, its warm and approachable, and they have a few TVs, so you can catch some of the games.  This was the first stop on a Sunday Funday, mostly because they have some great food choices, including huge salads.

I stuck with wine first for a little while.  A smooth, medium bodied pinot noir from Poppy.  I think Ronny was trying to give us a hint with the stemless glasses.  But, hey, I said it was Sunday funday.

After snacking a little off my friend’s plates, I eventually ordered.  I skipped the salads, and went for the pizza – classic style with cheese and pepperoni. There are a ton of choices with some gourmet ingredients.  It took a little while to come from the kitchen.  And, as I was getting to the spot where I was wondering where it was, the bartender told me they burned it.  So, they had to make a new one.  When I finally got it, I was super excited.  It was tasty.  They have a super thin crispy crust, which is how I generally like my pizza. This one had three cheeses – fontina and mozzerella for great melting cheeses, and some parm to add some tang.  I had a hard time finishing, as my eyes were much hungry than my stomach.  Luckily my friends helped out by picking off the pepperonis.
