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 […]
Last week I had the privilege of attending Copper Canyon Grill’s Home for the Holidays Preview Meal. At the event I met The Unmanly Chef, he lives in Howard County and was able to suggest a few spots I hadn’t heard of. Of the places he suggested, the one I […]
When it comes to Italian delis in Baltimore, my heart belongs to DiPasquale’s. But, in the interest of time and discovering something a little more accessible from my office, I decided to try Piedigrotta Bakery. I had a friend meeting me for lunch and nothing was more appealing to […]
For a while I worked in Catonsville, frequently for lunch a coworker and I would head over to Chef Paolino Café for what is arguably the best Caesar salad I’ve ever had. Fast forward a year later and I’m hiking with a friend and we are discussing where […]

After dinner at Nacho Mama’s in Canton, a friend and I were craving something sweet. On the walk back to the car, we passed Vaccaro’s Italian Pastries and knew we needed to stop in.
For lunch, I love eating sandwiches. And Rosina Gourmet is a sandwich spot I’ve heard great things about. They have three locations: Canton, Downtown, and a new location in Fells Point. For this particular visit, my friend and I headed to the Canton location to get a sandwich fix.
Update: Bottega is now at 1709 N Charles St. In April, Baltimore Magazine ran an article about the delicious Tuscany-inspired food at Bottega. Since then, I’ve been wanting to try it however it is nearly impossible to get a reservation. You need to make it 5 weeks ahead of […]
