For dinner on one of the recent cold nights we have been having, my roommate and I weren’t in the mood to trek anywhere far away from the comfort of our apartment but we still wanted to try something new. Locust Point is fairly close to where we live and I was able to grab a reservation on Open Table for Sweet Caroline’s so we headed over.
The space is small and cozy, it would make a great date night spot if you’re looking for something casual.
Upon looking over the menu, we were both in the mood for soups because it is the dead of winter, and Sweet Caroline’s has an awesome selection of sides, you can get three sides for $15.
My roommate decided to go with the Cream of Crab Soup which was nice and creamy, although she found it to be a little heavy on the old bay. And this is coming from a Baltimore native who probably had Old Bay sprinkled into her bottles as a toddler.
I decided to go with the Venison Chili. I really enjoyed seeing it on the menu because it is slightly different than the typical chili I’m used to seeing around Baltimore – beef. The chili was awesome, it wasn’t overly spicy and had plenty of meat. The dish didn’t waste space with pointless add-ons that do nothing but detract from chili.
For our sides, we ordered the Grilled Haricot Vert. These were very good but there was nothing particularly noteworthy about them.
We also ordered the Herbed Duck Fat Fries. The fries were a fairly large portion and seasoned nicely. They went well with our soups.
My roommate and I throughly enjoyed everything we enjoyed and I can’t wait to go back and try some of their other options.
