The Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall is the official performance home of Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and books some interesting nationally known acts, family shows, vocalists, dance companies, and classical performers.
Charming dive bar with an interesting jukebox and cheap beer. Cash only.
The dark, brick-lined bar, intimate dining room, and long-apron waitstaff suggest sophistication at this Mount Vernon nightspot, but the only thing haute about the Owl Bar is its mega-high ceilings. This menu of spruced-up bar food neither impresses nor disappoints--the tasty, golden crab cakes deliver, but with their steepish price what you're paying for is the ambiance--and its best options aren't that unique: You can trust the calamari. Both its brick-oven pizza and raw bar stay open late, and though the pseudo-fancy pizzas are solid pub grub, perfectly sized for two people approaching a drinking night's end. Do beware the urge to tackle oysters Belvedere--on the half shell with crab imperial--on a full belly of beer.
"Located in historic Baltimore's cultural center, Read Street Books offers a welcoming space for creative inspiration and expression. Showcased every weekend through winter months---live riginal music!! We have space available for meetings, workshops, classes, and live musical events."
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.
Sascha's is sexy, with the kind of understated lighting and soaring 16-foot-high ceilings. The menu offers a variety of clever small plates-- bison sliders, mini fish tacos-- substantial entrees, and even larger salads.
Gourmet bag lunches, prepared by Sascha's, for delivery throughout the Baltimore area.
Bakery specializing in wedding cakes, specialty cakes, and bakery items such as cookies and pies.
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.
Historic Mansion used by members for private dining, social events, business meetings, and weddings.
One of the hidden treasures of Baltimore, this Seton Hill Italian-goods store is both deli and grocery. The deli menu includes a delicious prosciutto, mozzarella, and pesto sandwich, as well as a handful of other equally satisfying house sandwiches. In addition to the deli, they sell an assortment of Italian groceries at affordable prices so you can re-create the Trinacria experience in your own home. Watch out for those cookies displayed behind the counter; you won't be able to stop at a dozen.
A Baltimore staple that survived a remodel with its soul and its old-school menu more or less intact. Breakfast and lunch and (only slightly dinged) atmosphere served here. The chicken salad with tomato aspic--just like your grandmother used to eat--is the signature dish. And be sure to mind your manners.
