Hull Street Blues Cafe
The more Locust Point gentrifies the gladder we are that Hull Street Blues is still the unpretentious, enjoyable restaurant it's been for the past two decades. This place straddles the line perfectly between “old” and “new” neighborhood joint--for years, it was the only place around you could both play shuffle bowl and get a mesclun salad, and we suspect it may still retain that distinction. Sunday brunch is legendary. The shuffle bowl table is transformed into a buffet of glorious breakfast fare, from eggs and sausage to carve-your-own ham and smoked-fish platters. Pancakes and French toast are made to order and brought to your table, and the Bloody Marys are mighty. Though Hull Street might bring in folks from outside the neighborhood primarily on Sundays, food the rest of the week is good, too. Check the affordable sandwich menu for blockbuster shrimp salad and a tasty blackened fish sandwich.
