The restaurants mentioned — including beloved Italian market DiPasquale’s; gastropub Brewer’s Art; TV favorite Charm City Cakes; pizza hotspot Joe Squared; and foodie standby Woodberry Kitchen — are mostly tried and true local favorites, though many of them aren’t places that tourists would necessarily stumble on without being pointed in the right direction. USA Today also cites a number of newer restaurants, including hip mezcal-y newcomer Clavel; and Hampden’s new upscale doughnut shop, B. Doughnut.
It’s a fairly thorough list, and one that’s likely to make your stomach start grumbling. It’s also nice to see a major paper writing about Baltimore this week without feeling the need to mention crime, riots, or violence. We are a city of many facets, after all.
