Enjoying a nice lunch during the workday is one of my favorite treats. And I’m glad it’s a trend that appears to be back on the upswing. On Friday, a friend and I decided to meet at one of our favorite downtown spots, B&O American Brasserie inside the Hotel Monaco. […]
Lately, one of my go to spots in Mount Vernon has been Wet City. Not only is the rotating beer selection fantastic but the food consistently impresses me. Before seeing a show, my girlfriend and I needed something to eat (and of course, a drink).
During my most recent trip to NYC, I stayed in The Roosevelt Hotel and was completely blown away by the breakfast so of course I jumped when I had a chance to try one of the restaurants on their property, Vander Bar. Midtown has a large business population, so the […]
One of Mount Vernon’s oldest spots is easily one of my favorites. The Brewer’s Art has been a Mount Vernon destination for over 21 years. The restaurant has two menus, a bar menu and a dining room menu. You can get the dining room menu at the bar […]

Mount Vernon is home to so many great bars – and West Madison Craft Beer & Wine Bar is no different. The space is a total neighborhood bar and I love it. The bartender knew the names of all of the patrons who came by while we visited. […]
During my trip to Williamsburg, VA, I stayed in the Williamsburg Lodge which I absolutely adored. The hotel was recently redone and maintains a ‘Colonial Chic’ vibe that I was really digging. The room we stayed in was a suite with a beautiful king sized bed and the adjacent […]
Bobby Flay is one of my favorite chef’s. I regularly watch him on the Food Network and I love making his recipes. So when Bobby’s Burger Palace opened in Towson, I knew it was only a matter of time before I would be checking it out.
Barrack’s Row has so many great restaurants. And when I heard that EatBar was offering Red Apron Burgers, I knew I needed to check it out. I stopped in for brunch after a recent Saturday morning visit to Eastern Market. If you haven’t been, Eastern Market is an […]
If you’ve been following me for a while, then you may remember that last year I had a fantastic meal at Grille620 in Ellicott City. Well, the chef from that great spot is also heading up the kitchen a few miles down the road in Clarksville at River Hill […]
