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.
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.
