Locust Point: Silo.5% Wine Bar

Update – Silo.5% is now closed

I live in South Baltimore, so my goal is to try all of the places nearby. My friend and I were on a dinner quest and looking for something on the lighter side so we opted for a place with small plates. I had heard that Silo.5% Wine Bar in Locust Point had some pretty good small plate options as well as a great wine list so my friend and I decided to head over and check out the options.

If you’re familiar with Miguels Cocina Y CantinaSilo.5% Wine Bar is right next to it.

The decor inside is trendy and the whole space has a sleek/modern feel to it.

After sitting down at our table, we each looked over the drink list and decided on a glass of wine. We also looked over the menu and decided to start with a Spinach and Artichoke Dip. The highlight of this dish, were the chips, which presumably came from a bag. We were really not pleased with the dip, after only a few bites we decided to just eat the chips. The dip had a funky taste and texture that did not sit well with us.

The next dish we ordered was a Caesar Salad. This was only okay. Better than the dip, but the dressing wasn’t the creamy caesar style dressing we were accustomed to.

Next up was the Brie & Cheddar Mac. Based on what we had already ordered, we didn’t have high hopes for this dish. However, this dish turned out to be pretty great. It was baked, super cheesy and had a nice spice to it.

The last thing we decided to share was the Tomato Mozzarella Pizza. We didn’t really know what to expect because so far we only liked one out of the three dishes. However this pizza ended up being the highlight of the meal, the crust was nice and thin and the cheese to sauce ratio wasn’t bad.

Would I return to Silo.5% Wine Bar for anything other than a drink? Probably not. The things we ordered that we did like, still weren’t excellent. They just seemed amazing in comparison to the other food.

Silo.5% Wine Bar is located at 1200 Steuart St., in Locust Point.
