With the some of the best Maryland crab soup anywhere, Gertrude's is the spot for Free State foodies, thanks to celebrity chef John Shields' artfully prepared seasonal menu, which is heavy on the seafood and easy on the eyes. The build-your-own entrées are popular here, as are the gorgeous crab cakes. Rivaling the food for tasteful flair is the outdoor patio, which overlooks the Baltimore Museum of Art's meandering sculpture garden. A perfect place to impress out-of-towners without breaking the bank; also ideal for a quiet lunch among the academic cognoscenti of adjacent Johns Hopkins University.
"This intimate spot feels more like a bar than a restaurant but locals raid the small menu for ambitious bar eats such as Roseda beef crosstown burger or a plate of scarfable fried dill pickle chips with goat cheese sauce."
Liquid Earth is the place for a shot of wheat grass or a fruit-, veggie-, and vitamin-filled beverage. It is also the home of some of the most heavenly meat-free sandwiches ever to grace our cakeholes. The sacred submarine--crunchy Italian bread stacked high with baked tofu, roasted onions, mushrooms, cheese, pickles, and cherry hots--is so large it usually ends up being lunch and dinner. The meatless muffaletta is another favorite. And Liquid Earth's vegan cheese--which can be substituted for the cow variety on any sandwich--is so creamy you won't believe its dairy free. Just don't hit up Liquid Earth if you're in a hurry; this place is too laid back for rush orders.
Nestled in a clubby basement decorated with elaborate iron sculptures and rotating art exhibits, Red Emma's features a limited but filling menu, with items like veggies and sprouts on a bagel with soy cream cheese. Munchies abound--homemade brownies, cookies, scones, biscotti, for dipping in the elaborate, expertly crafted coffee drinks. And the fair-trade coffee seems to cost less here than unfairly traded coffee at other bookstores. Rare propaganda pamphlets spill from the shelves lined with books on Situationist philosophy, computers are available as well as wireless internet, and speeches, concerts, movies, and news you may not have heard.
This much-loved pizza joint has expanded from NYC's Avenue A with a Baltimore location, featuring the same eclectic toppings (the Old Bay beast features crab, crawfish, Andouille sausage, and jalapenos).
