Little Italy: La Tavola

Little Italy isn’t a neighborhood I spend a ton of time in. While there are plenty of delicious spots, they’re all within a four block radius – I never know where I should visit. Fortunately, the GM at La Tavola reached out to me and invited me in to […]

Grilled Chicken Salad

Columbia: Bertucci’s

I’ve expressed my disdain for Columbia before, it’s a vast wasteland of strip malls. But, Bertucci’s is rolling out a new menu and some things necessitate a trip outside of the city. To be honest, I haven’t been to a Bertucci’s since the servers were giving me dough […]

Little Italy: Mug’s Bistro

Update, Mug’s Bistro is now closed. Mug’s Bistro opened quietly in Little Italy a few weeks ago. But while the weather is still nice, taking a walk during lunch to try someplace new is one of my favorite hobbies. I walked in shortly before noon and the place was […]

Polenta alla Griglia

Little Italy: La Scala

To be honest, in the 8 years that I’ve been living in Baltimore I’ve never had dinner in Little Italy. I’ve had plenty of Italian meals, but they’ve been from other parts of the city. In an effort to check out someplace new, a friend and I did […]

Mount Vernon: Trinacria

If you ask around for the best Italian deli in Baltimore, you will find two different types of people. People who are team Di Pasquales, and people who are team Trinacria. Di Pasquales is in Highlandtown and Trinacria is in Mount Vernon; I’ve already fallen in love with Di Pasquales but Mount Vernon is a little closer […]

Highlandtown: Matthew’s Pizza

If you ask around for the best pizza in Baltimore, I’m sure more than one person will mention Matthew’s Pizza in Highlandtown. Matthew’s has been a city institution since 1943 serving old-world (deep dish) style pizza. My friend loves Our House which serves the same style of pizza as Matthew’s. In an effort to […]
