With Preakness, a royal wedding and a bunch of other fun food events on the horizon, this week is shaping up to be a good one in Baltimore. Here’s a look at what’s coming up:
Welcome to March! The traditionally volatile month came in like a lamb this year, which gives Baltimoreans more reason than ever to go out and enjoy local restaurants.
Here’s a look at what’s happening in and around town this week:
The Baltimore Rock Opera Society’s third annual fundraiser offers a chance to hear Baltimore’s finest rock-orchestral fusion hits, enjoy some good local eats and brews and, for the very lucky, win tickets to see “Hamilton” on Broadway.
Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, which means that when it comes to dinners out to celebrate, Baltimore’s lovebirds have lots of choices. As usual, local restaurants have a lot planned for the holiday, from cooking classes to special menus.
With only a week to go before the big day, it’s time to make your reservations. Here’s a look at what restaurants have in store for Valentine’s Day 2017:
Hot Plate: Tacos at Clementine, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, Super Bowl Parties & the Black Restaurant Challenge
Are you hungry and thirsty, Baltimore? From ice cream for breakfast on Saturday to a Tuesday night filled with fun events, this week is a big one. Here’s a look at what’s happening in and around town this week:
Hot Plate: Champagne & Buche de Noel from Petit Louis, Truffles at Gnocco, Nouvelle Cuisine at La Cuchara
This past week was an exciting one in the Baltimore food world, with the much-anticipated opening of R. House (it’s fantastic) and the Chopped appearance of Faith Paulick, the executive chef of C Squared Restaurant Group, which includes Papi’s Tacos and Huck’s American Craft.
This week, the openings frenzy has calmed down, but there’s still plenty to keep local food-lovers entertained.
Baltimore is a pizza lovers’ paradise, as our “best of” March Madness contest illustrated this spring. You’ll remember that Birroteca in Hampden won the most praise – after more than 20,000 contest votes were cast. Other crusty local legends – who topped the tasty competition – were Joe Squared in Station North, Johnny Rad’s on Eastern Ave., Tooloulou of East Baltimore, Iggie’s in Mount Vernon, and Matthew’s in Highlandtown. I personally pine for the pie at Two Boots next door to MICA and the slim, steaming slices at BOP (Brick Oven Pizza) in Fells Point.
Which brings me to my pizza-relevant point. With the new Domino’s walk-in shop opening in Hamilton this week, a stone’s throw from my Belair-Edison hood, I’m wondering how many of us true pie enthusiasts will bother to bite. Please weigh in below. Is Domino’s a processed-food guilty/nostalgic pleasure you still indulge in, when time is super short?
