"This Euro-style neighborhood cafe serves the business and court crowd by day, and is a full-blown restaurant at night. Featuring seafood, paninis, vegetarian and sweets. During the live music in the evenings, you can find the local college students and the nearby residents using the wifi, dining with a date on the deck, and of course french pressing their coffee."
Centro offers a variety of Spanish and South American tapas dishes. Extensive list of wine, sherry and port from Spain and South America.
This perennially pretty but historically capsizing street-level restaurant has apparently finally been made seaworthy by the current crew. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a fancy hotel atmosphere, with a casual menu. Call for weekly specials, and keep in mind when visiting nearby museums.
"Step inside Jack’s Bistro for a delightful “coastal” experience that is serious about taste buds, and cozy in atmosphere. Nestled in the quaint Canton neighborhood centrally located in downtown Baltimore, Jack’s Bistro boasts a unique menu including food you wont find anywhere else. Jack’s Bistro turns everyday ingredients into culinary masterpiece combinations. Sophisticated with a sense of humor, Jack’s Bistro humbly possesses a modern feel with retro tinges including earth toned painted walls, Jetson-style art, and booths made up of church pews on a brick tile platform. Chef/Owner Ted Stelzenmuller combines prime world flavors with a creative flare that ROCKS! We are sure you will find the staff warm and welcoming as they help guide you through the tempting menu items, rousing wine list, and innovative cocktails. Jack’s Bistro assures passion for detail in a casual atmosphere where the food speaks for itself."
Longstanding Owings Mills neighborhood destination for an upmarket neighborhood. Cushioningly sleek atmosphere, solicitous service (it had better be), and sophisticated renditions of comfort food are major factors in the successful formula. It couldn't hurt to show up with a regular.
"Baltimore's unique gastro cafe serves only the finest distinctive foods and quality beverages. Rated 3 stars, "Best new cafe with style" by Sun food critic. Food is prepared by Paris Cordon Bleu trained chef. Illy hand-pressed coffees and espressos. European sipping chocolate is to die for! Free WiFi."
Tapas Teatro should get big credit for ushering in the era of small-plate dining to Baltimore. Happily, there is now a plethora of local places slinging small plates of everything from pan-Asian fusion to Mediterranean tidbits, but we keep coming back to the Teatro for its classic Spanish tapas. There are plenty of garlicky, spicy treats, and most of the meats benefit from char-grilling over a wood fire. Sangría is the classic tapas companion, and when it is enjoyed by the pitcher (surrounded by stacks of recently emptied plates of grilled calamari or skewered tenderloin or roasted eggplant) at one of the eatery's sidewalk tables, life is good, indeed.
French decor and simple ingredients keep the flavors bright and the room comfortable.
We all know the beers, sometimes to our public embarrassment. But the food at Brewer's may be the real prize, a mix of seriously gussied-up pub grub (those rosemary garlic fries) and dinners that make you feel all slick just saying the names. (Ballantine of Poussin rolls off the tongue.) The ingredients are fresh, the cuts of meat are carefully handled, the presentations are creative, and the end results are rich. After years of diner counters and pizza joints, the warm, grown-up dining room is like trading sleeping on the couch for 400-thread-count sheets.
Union Jack's British Pub will open its third location on March 12 in Columbia at 10400 Little Patuxent Parkway. Union Jack's offers a pub side with casual dining, 24 high definition TVs for game watching, and a billiards room. Union Jack's also offers a more upscale dining side with a quieter, more elegant atmosphere and an extensive wine list to accompany specialty British dishes and American grill and seafood entrees. Late night on weekends, there will be a DJ and dancing. Union Jack's offers something for everyone!
"New coffeehouse and lightfare resteraunt in Westminster, MD- classic italian and american-style espresso drinks, loose leaf tea, many different methods of single serve brew coffees (chemex, french press, pods, siphon). Modern and technologically savvy. computers, apple tv, wifi, fish tank, and the best equipment on the market. Baristas trained in latte art, presentation of both food and drinks is fantastic. Also has a drive-through window."
For a town with such a significant Polish immigrant population, Baltimore sure is thin on the pierogi. Fortunately, Ze Mean Bean fills this gap beautifully. The pierogi plate is a lifesaver, with homemade tender dough pockets of potato and cheese, cabbage, or sweet farmers cheese. But we also highly recommend the voluptuous holupki (stuffed cabbage) and the leczo, homemade potato dumplings sautéed with fresh house-made sausage. Those new to Eastern European eats should go for the Slavic Sampler, a butter-slathered plate of Polish mother's love.
