Crabs, oysters, mac and cheese: This week, the Baltimore food scene has a little something for everyone, including tons of ways to raise money for good causes while eating and drinking. Here’s a look at what’s coming up:
Roland Park residents will see a thoroughly remodeled Eddie’s of Roland Park grocery store over the next several years if the owners can obtain approval to build into and above the sidewalk leading to their Roland Avenue store.
Co-owner Michael Schaffer told a gathering of the Roland Park Civic League yesterday that he wants to renovate the interior of the store at 5113 Roland Avenue just as its sister location, Eddie’s at 6213 N. Charles St., was renovated three and a half years ago.
Lexington Market, which is undergoing a $40 million reconstruction project, is searching for a developer to take on the East Market building once the new South Market has been built.
The nonprofit operator Lexington Market Inc., issued a request for proposals (RFP) Tuesday asking for plans that fit with the character of the areas surrounding the market, such as the Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District, Market Center National Historic District, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus.
By now farm-to-table is as commonplace in the restaurant world as craft cocktails or leather-bound menus.
The Atlas Restaurant Group is taking the concept to its literal extreme by opening a farm of its own, meaning some of the fruits, vegetables and herbs on your plate will literally come from their farm to your table.
The Harbor East location of Gordon Biersch, a chain of brewpubs serving in-house craft brews and a menu of pub-grub staples, has closed, an employee confirmed to Baltimore Fishbowl.
This week is a relatively quiet one on the Baltimore restaurant scene but the events that are taking place offer a little something for everyone, from cocktail lovers to serious carnivores.
Here’s a look at what’s on tap:

Buckle up, Baltimore food lovers. This week is a big one in the restaurant world, featuring several terrific wine and spirits dinners, lots of margaritas, and even a little Harry Potter. Here’s a look at what’s coming up:
The makeover of Lexington Market began on Tuesday as state and city officials broke ground on the project to reconstruct downtown Baltimore’s 238-year-old public market.
Updating the market will be part of building Baltimore “better and stronger for the future,” said Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, who envisioned a day when tourists from across the country will flock to the city to visit the new Lexington Market.
“Lexington Market’s next chapter represents an incredible opportunity for our city, and it is essential that we support the equitable redevelopment and revitalization of this economic hub for delicious food and homegrown entrepreneurship as we continue to grow Baltimore,” he said.
If there’s a holy calendar for the local disciples of Gambrinus, god of beer, Belgian Beer Fest at Max’s Taphouse is a high holiday.
Every February, for 16 years, the Fells Point staple hosts beer nerds, who line up starting at 6 a.m. along the sidewalk out front, for several days of Belgian brews.
“We get people from all over the place,” says general manager and beer master Casey Hard during a quiet period a few days before the festival. “I never get tired of working it.”
