Now that last night’s kick-off party is over, featuring free tastings and live music at the Baltimore Visitor Center, it’s time to begin the Black Restaurant Challenge itself.
Few spots in Baltimore are as effortlessly romantic as Fells Point. And few restaurants as well-regarded as Waterfront Kitchen, where chef Jerry Pellegrino prepares exquisite “seed-to-plate” fare that’s seasonally focused and as locally sourced as possible. With stunning views and great atmosphere, it’s a perfect spot for your Valentine’s Day dinner reservations (which you might want to make just about…now). The special Valentine’s Day menu features a prix fixe menu for two– with optional wine pairings. It’s elegantly presented fare that sticks to classic flavors and dishes that will warm you to the core. But that’s not the only reason it’s a great pick.
We love it when two of our favorite things come together. In this case, it’s a (weekend-long) marriage of Artifact Coffee (one of the best spots in town for a cup of joe and something to nibble on) and Blacksauce Kitchen (you know the mile-long line at the farmers market for their biscuits?). And not only have the two teamed up for what promises to be a delicious and unique dinner concept this weekend, but they’ve done it right at the peak of the holiday season. Translation: one meal that we don’t have to cook ourselves. One night when we will not have to wash one dish. One night that we can sit and be served food, rather than chasing after the kids to make sure they’re not throwing theirs all over the floor/couch/guests. In other words: perfect timing.

For some of us, the clichés “TGIF” and “I hate Mondays” don’t always apply. Whether it’s because your job requires you to work hours other than the classic 9-5, or because weekends are all about keeping the kids busy, sometimes Monday can be more Friday than Friday. You know? Except on actual Fridays, you’re less likely to find killer dinner deals at your favorite restaurants, like Corner BYOB. The fine Hampden restaurant (which, as its name indicates, is BYOB) offers a special Monday night $25 Prix-Fixe dinner deal for those looking to start the week off right.
