Baltimore Puerto 511

Has anyone eaten here. It's a Peruvian restaurant near the central Pratt library. It sounds good.

Lunch in Harbor East tomorrow

Cinghiale is good if you stick to pasta or hearty apps. In my experience the entrees are over priced but the food is very good.

One dish at Grace Garden

I agree. It was fine but not remarkable.

This is why I need people in the know to eat with.

I have been meaning to try r and r. Can you eat inside? Also I have tried 3 dishes at grace gardens. The fish noodles were ok and the other 2 were very salty and tough. I must not have ordered right. I need to go with a group who knows what they are doing

Baltimore Kali's or black olive

For a nice quiet evening with great food for a nice dinner for 4.

Black olive in fells point

Has anyone been her recently? I want to take my parents out for a nice dinner. We have gone to Tio pepes in the past but it was disappointing the last time.

Lancaster- press room, belvedere or John j Jeffries

Please let us know how it was. I am from Baltimore and am taking someone out for dinner. I usually go to the left bank in York but they are closed on Sunday. I am willing to press on to Kancaster for good food.

Any idea where to find sirloin cap "culotte" steak or ribeye cap "spinalis" in Baltimore?

I have had luck with the butchers at Eddies in Roland park.

Maggies Farm

I just had a very good brunch at maggies farm. The ramen with pork belly was great and smoky. All other entrees at our table looked good as well. The service was great. I will say we were the first customers so I don't know how they are when they get busy.

York restaurant

Is there a restaurant that is the quality of the left bank in York?

Baltimore - 10 hungry guys over a fall weekend

The quality of food at tio pepes is not that high. The restaurant has charm but I was there earlier this year and the paella was so bad we didn't take any home. The other entrees were equally I impressive. Prime rib is a steakhouse with a madman atmosphere (very dark and elegant). They have jazz, perfect service provided by professional waiters. It is a steakhouse. Cinghiale is also excellent. My advice there is do't get an entree but rather several smaller plates.

I just had a great brunch at maggies farm on harford road about 15 minutes north of downtown. I had ramen with porkbelly and poached eggs.

Hope this helps

Nags Head, North Carolina

I had a great lunch at a seafood shack next to Nag's head produce. I can't remember the name.

Must hit spots - Baltimore

Cocos on Harford road is a family owned bar and restaurant. Their crab cakes are jumbo lump and huge. They are often voted best crab cake in Baltimore. The staff is very friendly. If you go make a reservation they are very popular.

Fells point is a nice place to visit and walk around. There are shops and restaurants around the water. If you go it's nice to stop in at Berthas for a beer and a little live music. Peters inn is a popular fells point spot. There are others but I don't go that often so I'd be recommending places based on others opinions.

The Helmand Baltimore

Why do so many restaurants over salt their food? I had lamb meatballs which were spiced well with a good flavor but they were so salty. I am getting very tired of being over charged for disappointing food.

Hatteras Island

We ended up cooking a lot because the restaurants don't take reservations and unless you eat at 5:00 or 9:00 you wait in line for a while. We got fresh fish I believe at risky business. We got produce from a farm stand near risky business and from the grocery store in town. We went to a great sandwich place on the sound side that made their own pickles and everything was fresh but I can't remember the name. Maybe someone else will. You can eat outside and it only had counter service.

Quartino or Markethouse

Thanks. The noise level doesn't matter.

Quartino or Markethouse

I like both abd both menus look good but, if they aren't executed well it doesn't matter. I want to go to the restaurant that is highest in overall quality.

Alchemy- what is going on?

Unacceptable. I understand not camping out at a table but part of going out to eat is to enjoy the company. There's a name for restaurants where the goal is to fill up fast and they charge far less. I have never been told that I can't pace my own meal but then again, I never asked.

Morel hunting in Maryland

Thanks for the great info. I'll let you know what I find.

Morel hunting in Maryland

I had morels for the first time and I want to cook with them. Does anyone know of a morel hunting club preferably not far from Baltimore county? Also if you have tips on purchasing fresh morels in Baltimore I would appreciate it.

romantic dinner in Baltimore

Cinghiale was great. I had the best mushroom soup of my life, fried sand eels with homemade mayonnaise, and excellent tortellini. And after all of that I was too full for an entree so I got another app of fish with citrus.

Alchemy- what is going on?

I was underwhelmed by alchemy for the price. No matter where I go, I set the pace for my meal by not ordering all at once.
