Huck’s American Craft has been open for about a year now, but the kitchen only opened up in January. I was meeting some friends near Canton in Brewer’s Hill. Huck’s specializes in American classics as well as craft beer and spirits. The team behind Huck’s is the same duo behind Papi’s Tacos in Fells Point.
After browsing the impressive crush menu (order the Huckelberry Lemonade), my friends and I decided to share the Boardwalk Soft Pretzel. The pretzel was super buttery, it almost melted in my mouth, came with three dipping sauces. There was grained whiskey mustard, Vermont maple mustard, and craft beer fondue. Of the three, my favorite was the Vermont maple mustard, but they really were all delicious.
My friends and I also shared an order of the Wisconsin Cheese Curds. These were similar to mozzarella sticks, the beer battered ‘squeaky cheese’ was super gooey and melted then served with rosemary buttermilk sauce for dipping. If you’re a cheesy fan, don’t miss these.
Since a trip to No Idea last year, my friend has had trouble turning down Toasted Ravioli. When she saw these on the menu, she decided to order them as her meal. The ravioli was crispy and filled with herbs and Muenster cheese and served with a side of Huck’s marinara and sprinkled Parmesan. My friend devoured this.
To accompany the ravioli, my friend ordered the Purple Potato Fries. These were hand-cut, house-fried, and herb-salted, served with Fresno aioli for dipping. These were a little starchier than traditional fries, but they were still delicious.
At Huck’s, all of the pizza’s are made with a pretzel crust. One of my friends ordered the special pizza, the CBC Pie. On the pretzel crust was chicken, bacon, and cheese – cheddar and muenster. The crust was thin and crispy, and you can never go wrong with bacon on a pizza. This was another hit!
I ordered Huck’s Burger and added cheddar cheese. It was a simple grilled patty topped with cheese and served with lettuce, tomato, and pickled veggies. The burger was insanely juicy, probably one of the best patties I’ve had. Because the burger was so flavorful on its own, I didn’t find myself missing sauces and other toppings.
