Vent Coffee Roasters will join other food-related businesses, including Union Craft Brewing and The Charmery, at Union Collective, which is slated to open in the spring of 2018.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, most Baltimoreans’ minds and stomachs are turning to turkey and stuffing. But before the big day, there are still plenty of other things to sip and bite around town. Here’s a look at what’s happening in the Baltimore food scene this week:

Hot Plate: Colette & Langermann’s Closing, National Doughnut Day, St. Nicholas Greek Festival

The St. Nicholas Greek Festival is a celebration of all things Greece, and local food-lovers know that it’s famous for its great food lineup.

The local food scene took a bit of a breather last week, settling into summer with just a few events. This week restaurants are back in full force, hosting wine dinners, brunches and other events, and other organizations are getting in on the action, too, with everything from a doughnut bike crawl to one of the city’s most popular international festivals.

Here’s a look at what’s happening in and around town this week:

Hot Plate: Sagamore Pendry Restaurant Opens, Clementine Brunch Returns, Cafe Cito and Bel-Loc Close

Order & Chaos will celebrate National Waffle Day (March 25) with free waffle toppings.

Spring is here, Baltimore, and with it, tons of restaurant news, from the opening of a swanky new chop house to the return of a beloved brunch to food-related classes popping up all over town. Here’s a look at what Baltimore’s restaurants have to offer this week:

Hot Plate: St. Patrick’s Day Festivities, Brunch at The Elephant, Wine at Cinghiale & Whole Hog at Le Garage


There’s plenty of green beer to be drunk this week, but there’s also mozzarella to be pulled, wine to be paired and a whole host of non-Irish food festivities to enjoy. Here’s a look at what Baltimore’s restaurants have planned this week:

Hot Plate: Helmand Kabobi Opens, County Restaurant Weeks, Wine Events & Tickets for The Supper

Wit & Wisdom Chef Zack Mills will defend his title this year at “The Supper,” a fundraising event for St. Agnes Hospital. Tickets are on sale now.

There’s no such thing as mid-winter doldrums in the restaurant world – at least not this week. With openings, new hours and tons of events, Baltimore food lovers have plenty to keep them busy this week.

Here’s a look at what’s happening around town:
