Any recent reviews of Meli? The wife wants to check this place out for her birthday.

Also, the Sip n Bite on Boston street was used for a scene I think, can't remember.

Several time there were lunches had at the now defunct Werner's between the Commissioner and Carcetti.

Alone in Baltimore

Not sure what you're into, but Alewife is supposed to have a good beer selection, and long bar good for enjoying a meal, and close to Camden Yards. I personally haven't been so I can't comment on much, but what I heard so far has been promising.


oysters in Baltimore

Mama's on the half shell in Canton Square is another option.

Vino Rosina - wine bar in Harbor East
13.5% - wine bar in Hampden

Crab Pizza at Matthew's

I recently tried the Woodward and it was great!

Where to buy ribs for home cooking? Baltimore County

Im going to make some ribs at home this weekend, who sells good ones? I see BJ's has them, any other options?

Baltimore: Best store-bought potato salad

Geresbecks off of Eastern Ave. is known to have good potato, pasta, shrimp salads etc.

White Tuna Sashimi

Yes, I get it a lot.
Also known as "Escarole", "White Tuna" sashimi is a white, very oily fish. The flesh is buttery in consistency, much like the prized Toro. A serving of 3 thinly sliced pieces of sashimi should weigh approximately 3 oz. It is high in fat but also high in protein.

Looking for early morning soccer bar

We were thinking of getting to Philly at 9:30am or so. A lot of soccer games are aired early morning due to the time difference from Europe. Any bars open early on days like this for the soccer fans? We are def hitting Monks, but after the game.

Looking for early morning soccer bar

Friends and I are coming up from Baltimore early Saturday March 13th for the Flyers game. We are staying in Center City and want to find a bar (soccer or oyster) preferably to pre-party before taking the train to the Wachovia center. Any options? I'd be down for any soccer, hockey, or Belgian beer, o, or oyster themed spots that open early on Saturdays!

Announcement: New Board Breakdown for Chowhound

Baltimore and DC need to be separate!! Baltimore hounders like myself are more so concerned with good eats in Baltimore, both city and county. Even Maryland in general, but not including the District of Columbia which has its own scene that too deserves its own forum, but out of the usual travel distance for us Baltimore natives. Anyone agree?

Top five Baltimore area pizza places?

So I'm finally going to get to Joe Squared pizza this week and looking forward to it! What pizza do I NEED to try? Should my wife and I try two smaller pies to get some diversity? Any apps or dishes def worth getting? Opinions please!

Kooper's Burger Truck?!?!?!?!!??!!?

Sounds awesome!

The Bicycle has closed....

I always enjoyed my dining experience and food here, sad to see it go.

Hummus at Fell's Point


H-Mart "Sweet Peppers"?

My guess after a quick google would be shishito peppers. Maybe, maybe not?

Best Onion Rings

Red Robin in Towson has great onion rings, They are extra crispy and stacked in a tower when they come out. Plus their dipping sauces are great too.

Sushi-grade Tuna

I hear great things about H-Mart.

Sushi-grade Tuna

Two years ago when I tried my hand at making sushi, I purchased sushi grade fish from a shop on York Road in Timonium, just north of seminary ave (next to 7-11):

There is also a place on Deereco Road in Timonium that sell all the rice, vinegar, Nori, etc needed to make sushi. Hope that helps.

Soft Shell Crabs Yet?

Annabell Lee Tavern had a soft crab sandwich on their menu last week as a special.

Baltimore Crabs

Not sure how the crabs are, but Nick's Fish House is on the water, and always a fun place to drink/eat outdoors.

Filling a Growler in Baltimore?

I think Brewer's Art will fill a growler for you if you bring one in. Also, Red Brick in White Marsh might.

Obscene amounts of oysters?

You should look into Bull & Oyster Roasts. Usually easy to find them in this town. For $30 or so you get all you can eat oysters and usually free beer too, along with the all the other foods.
