Philly hound needs Baltimore suggestions

I had a great weekend in Baltimore, thanks to some good friends. Friday night our friend picked us up and took us to Langermann's, in Canton. I had the lobster bisque and the shrimp and grits. A word of caution, one taste of the soup and I knew if I didn't make a special request I would be unhappy with my dinner. The bisque was so highly salted I could hardly eat it. I spoke to the waiter about my the salt and he had them make my shrimp and grits again with no salt. There was chorizo sausage in the dish so without any additional salt it was really good. My husband had the rock fish and he said it was delicious. We all shared the apple cobbler with caramel ice cream. A perfect ending to a good meal. By the way I really enjoyed the craft show and went both Friday and Saturday. Saturday night we met some friends at B & O Brasserie. Thanks for all your suggestions! We loved the art deco ambiance. The menu had many interesting choices. I had the cauliflower soup which was really a consomme with pieces of cauliflower. It was nice of light, a nice start to a good meal. I had the sweet potato gnocchi with lobster. It was a good choice, very flavorful and nice bite size pieces of lobster. My husband had the duck which was to his liking. Our friend had the lamb, which he loved. By the way, on Saturday afternoon we jumped on the orange bus and took a ride around its route. We spent some time at Harbor East which was great except for the road construction. Thanks again for all you recommendations. I'll definitely be back next year!

I love coming down to Baltimore. I try to make the craft show every year. We used to meet several friends, some of them used to live in Baltimore. I have eaten at Helmond, Brewers Art, Pazo and Kali's Court. Those were some of the better ones. Unfortunately, I am injured this year (bad back) and can't walk that far. I'll be sitting a lot at the Craft Show! We don't know where we are going either Friday or Saturday. I'll let you know.

Thanks for the suggestions. You are right, I guess I am spoiled with many good restaurants within walking distance in Phila. I called some friends In the area and I am hoping they will pick us up and take us somewhere.

We are looking for dinner places. We are not big walkers so a couple of blocks is our limit. We are flexible as far as food choices and price point, we probably will not have dressy clothes. Thanks for your help and interest.

Looking for nice restaurant in Oakland near the hospital.

Philadelphia hound staying at Residence Inn in Oakland near the hospital. Are there any good (casual) restaurants within walking distance? We would prefer something not too loud!

rotisserie chicken-in Philly?

There must be a good chicken place at the Chestnut Hill Farmer's Market. It is open on weekends, located just off Germantown Ave. in Chestnut Hill.

Philly Hound spending 3 days in Boston

Thanks for the suggestions. It turns out we were traveling with our dog (a Katrina rescue) and she doesn't like to stay in the room alone. We had to dine outside. Newbury Street worked out just fine. We ate at Stephanies and Armani's. It worked out fine and we had a great visit to your lovely town.

Can I get into any of these restaurants without reservations? We will be in from Thursday to Sunday. Is it okay to take the subway at night? Thank you for all your suggestions and replies.

My husband & I will be spending 3 days in Boston. We are staying at the Fairmont and looking for some suggestions nearby. One day we are meeting one of my students for lunch in Cambridge. I need some suggestions for breakfast and dinner near the Fairmont and lunch in Cambidge. Thanks.

best steak frites in Philadelphia?

I have to agree with Matyson as well. Last time I was there it was not on the dinner menu. The waitress told me it was available at lunch. Keep on asking for it at dinner and maybe they will bring it back.

Suggestions for Osteria

I just got a cancellation at Osteria for tonight. It's early - we won't have a big appetite. Any suggestions on what to order?

Trenton, NJ [moved from PA board]

DiLorenzo Tomatoe Pies on Hudson St. Is great. They do not have a bathroom! Do not walk there from the train. You woud have to go through some questionable neighborhoods. Pizza is the only thing they have and they are not always open for lunch. The steakhouse they are talking about is Lorenzo's. It used to be good and is expensive. I also am a former Trentonian.

New Chef at L'Angolo

The old chef at L'Angolo left a few months ago. Does anyone know where he ended up? The food is still good, not quite as good as before. I'd love to find the old chef, he was really great.

Has anyone been to Django lately?

I was thinking of trying Django again. I used to be a regular customer when Brian and Aimee were there. Do you still need a reservation a month in advance? How is the food?
