"Turkish and Mediterranean restaurant open daily for lunch, dinner and late night fare. Offering the best fresh healthy options as well as vegan menus"
Split into halves--table service or order-at-the-counter--City Café serves all your coffee needs, as well as pastries and baked goods (including a fine pumpkin cookie in the fall). The menu ranges from fancy dinner items like cinnamon duck to lunch fare like the very good hamburger to hearty breakfasts, if you can manage to get up that early. Plus after a while they remember your coffee order when you walk in. And at 8 a.m. that's very important.
"We have the best pizza in Baltimore - if you try it you'll be back! Also try our premium Chicken Caesar Salad, one of the most popular items on our menu."
City Paper says: If two people occupy the lone stools in this Mount Vernon carry-out the place feels hot-spot packed, but it's still worth waiting out the rush to order a pizza, calzone, or one of its many subs. It's not so much that Michaelangelo's fare is head and shoulders above others of its ilk--it knows its way around a veggie sub, but that's also hard to muck up. But the food bang for the buck here is pretty sweet. An eight-inch veggie sub is only going to set you back $4.99. And, ladies, Michaelangelo's eight inches actually looks like eight inches.
Of all the sushi bars in Baltimore, Minato is one of the best places to actually sit at the bar itself--all the better to watch Minato's extremely professional sushi chefs at work. If you sit a while and seem truly interested in their work, the free samples will begin to come your way--tidbits of the evening's freshest, most excellent fish, or exotic tastes of giant surf clam and smoked eel. Otherwise, if seated at the tables, Minato seems like many other local sushi joints, though we appreciate the generously sized maki rolls and combo boxes.
The newly rebuilt and redecorated Never on Sunday is the same old favorite we remember from years ago. Wait, no, that's not quite true; it's an improvement. Selling the same tasty cheese steaks, pizzas, and Greek dishes to die for (and until 3 a.m. on Thursday through Saturday), Never on Sunday has cleaned up its act. Imagine eating fast food in a warm, inviting, and clean atmosphere. Too good to be true, right? OK, but take a hint from the name of the place and go on a Saturday.
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.
Spicy or mild, meaty or meatless, there are plenty of choices. Don't neglect appetizers such as rice cakes with minced shrimp and chicken in peanut-coconut-cream sauce, or crispy fried catfish meat with onions, peanut, and ginger. There are nicer dining rooms you'd rather spend time in, though.
Thai food counter and takeout joint in Mt. Vernon offers a range of dishes in meat and vegetarian categories at very reasonable prices.
Every Wednesday for over 13 years there is 'Ballroom Dancing at the Belvedere'. Light Buffet, two 1/2 hour beginners dance lessons by Helmut Licht (learn 12 dances in 6 weeks). General dancing to live and recorded music. Helmut's Big Band plays on the first Wednesday of the month. $ 17.00 covers all. On Big Band nights admission is $ 25.00.
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.
Arguably Baltimore's first great restaurant, Tio Pepe invites heated debate among the citizenry, some of whom think it's slipped, most of whom find things just as they were when the restaurant opened in 1968. The candlelit whitewashed grottolike interior still stimulates romantic feelings, and the brightly dressed waiters still ruthlessly run the show. Prepare to spend a long, leisurely meal, and clear up some room on your credit card allowance. Tio Pepe is really expensive, best left for special occasions (or try it for lunch sometime). Always start with the shrimp in garlic sauce, follow with the fillet of sole with bananas, and try to persuade your dining companion to splurge on the suckling pig or, failing that, the slow-cooked paella. Jackets are required.
