There's been an upscale revamping and the pizzas have been gussied up. The immense burgers, though, are still here.
This bright, bustling storefront seems to do a healthy lunch trade from local offices, and it's easy to see why: a solid sampling of soups, salads, and sandwiches, all executed a cut above the usual noontime fare. Dinner is takeout only.
Can't miss this purple-painted house beside Falls Road, nor would you want to miss the selection of artful sweet and savory stuff turned out of its ovens.
"Nestled in the heart of Mt. Washington’s business district Chiyo offers a wide array of delicious sushi combinations, 100 rolls to choose. From tempura to teriyaki, our lunch and dinner entrees cater to those who enjoy traditional Japanese cuisine."
Crêpe du Jour's namesake creations alone make this small, warm-hearted eatery worth a visit. Crêpes both sweet and savory form the backbone of the menu and make an enjoyable lunch or light dinner on their own; particularly good are classics like delicate yet deluxe crêpes Suzette with citrus zest, butter, and Grand Marnier. At dinner, however, Crêpe du Jour's menu expands to classic French plates like carre d'agneau (lamb chops in a red wine demiglace) and steak Onglet (gussied-up steak frites). Before you ask, of course escargot are served. Weekend brunch at Crêpe du Jour's outdoor tables is particularly pleasant.
This neighborhood pub serves juicy hamburgers, various apps, cold and hot sandwiches and subs, hot platters of meat served with fries, wings, chili, and salads.
Desert Café's Middle Eastern and North African menu makes for great carryout but its whimsical interior--stars dangle from the ceiling, and banquette seating is piled high with comfy pillows--invites diners to stay. Classics are good--the enormous hummus sampler platter begs to be shared among many--but inventive updates like the curried mango chicken salad are even better. Given Desert Café's more-than-generous portions it is hard to save room for dessert, but once you check out the weekly roster of homemade treats, you'll be glad you did. BYOB.
Effusive chef Ed Bloom fills his bright and snazzy dining room with the heady aromas of good Creole cooking. His definitive specialty is an intense, sweat-inducing gumbo, constructed from a slow-cooked dark roux and three stocks, outfitted with a choice of andouille sausage, blackened chicken, shrimp, or steak. Also remarkable: the Creole shrimp boat with green-lipped mussels and blackened fish, the pan-fried chicken with pan gravy, the fresh vegetables, and the three daily homemade soups. If the front porch isn't open, seat yourselves at the curvy bar by the kitchen and watch the food-loving staff in action.
Nouveau-deli carry-out. Selections lean to the healthy side with salads and veggie dishes. Usually features an intriguing quiche, and a chicken salad with chunks of breast meat with sun-dried tomatoes and bleu cheese, or with raisins in a curry dressing.
Notorious as a preppy headquarters, the Mount Washington Tavern is a multistory institution complete with a retractable-roof garden atrium and reclaimed furnishings from Old Baltimore. The tavern's menu has evolved of late, accommodating such unmasculine fare as grilled eggplant with goat cheese, ahi tuna clubs, and chicken with sun-dried tomatoes and brie. But the lacrosse-boy selections still predominate--hearty Black Angus steaks, raw-bar items, oversized burgers, and a smashing Reuben. Sunday brunch features a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar. After 25 years, it's all taken for granted, but things really click handsomely here.
This North Baltimore staple is a good spot for when you just want a good Cobb salad and some iced tea in a setting that encourages lingering. Mostly classic American lunch, brunch, and dinner fare with multiple bars/dining areas.
A "neighborhood cafe" that, in fact, offers a fairly ambitious dinner menu and wine list in a casual atmosphere alongside the usual compliment of soups, salads, sandwiches.
Not a carte—or even cart—at all, but the garage of the purple-painted Bonjour French Bakery and Cafe on the west side of Falls Road at Lake Avenue, HDC serves up a limited but frequently changing menu of gourmet dogs
