The Stadiums: Johnny Sanchez

Update: Johnny Sanchez is now closed Since the Horseshoe Casino opened, I’ve been wanting to try Johnny Sanchez which is a collaboration between celebrity chefs Aaron Sanchez and Johnny Besh. I have a group of  friends who love Mexican food as much as I do. When we were deciding […]

Locust Point: Umi Sake

Update: Umi Sake is now closed. When I was a Towson student, plenty of times my friends and I would head up to Umi Sake in Timonium for sushi and Chinese food. When I found out they were expanding and opening a location in Locust Point, right near […]

Bread with Greenie Sauce

Canton: Pasticcio

Update – Pasticcio is now closed.  In Canton, I love Pasta Mista. It’s quick and the food is awesome. But sometimes I’m in the mood for Italian food that’s still casual but with waiter service. My roommate and I already needed to run a few errands in Canton, so […]

Inner Harbor: Family Meal

Update – Family Meal is now closed. In Baltimore, the Inner Harbor is a giant tourist trap. Fortunately Bryan Voltaggio (a Top Chef finalist from season 6) is looking to change that with the opening of Family Meal in the Harbor. A friend and I were looking to go someplace […]

Home Fries

Canton: THB

As a Towson student, I often needed to cure my hangovers with a bagel from Towson Hot Bagels. Not only was this the closest option to Towson University, it was also the best bagel option in the area by a large margin. I’m originally from New York, when […]

Honey Old Bay Wings

In Federal Hill, a specialty French Fry shop opened up recently called The Local Fry. This place specializes in french fries – could there possibly be anything better?! Since I heard about The Local Fry, I’ve been looking forward to trying it. French fries are my favorite food (I […]
