Wine Market

I've been a long time fan of the Wine Market. Their Mac and Cheese is legendary. I went in today for lunch with a couple of friends. I ordered the lobster bowl and asked for their special tater tots.

First, the lobster bowl came with chop sticks - perfect.

It was delicious (as would be imagined) with large chunks of claw meat in their, the lime was a great touch. But enough about that.

The tater tots were amazing. I shared them with my friends. Unlike any tater tot you have ever had, they melted in your mouth.

They were a special item, so I encourage you to hurry down before they are taken off the menu.

    I'm not from Baltimore, but I swing by WM every time I'm in town. I love the concept.

      We visited this past Monday during restaurant week, and wanted to share our experience! We enjoyed each of the menu selections that we chose. The food tasted great, was presented beautifully, and was adequately portioned. Our order included: Chilled Corn Soup, Braised Short Ribs, Aged Mac & Cheese, Scallops w/Tomato Risotto, Sirloin with Truffle Tots, Death by Chocolate Ice Cream, Chocolate Pave. Monday nights is also $18 bottles of wine night, and we enjoyed a Moscato. Normally Monday nights is also neighborhood night w/20% off entrees!
      Our server was knowledgeable, and efficient without being obtrusive. The ambiance is enjoyable, and on a nice night, the outdoor seating is quite pleasant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to foodies and friends!

        I've been to the Wine Market twice in the last two months, and both times I have ordered the lobster salad. The first time, it came without the lime wedges and chopsticks. There was less lobster, and the lobster was overcooked. I thought this was a one-time event, so I gave them a pass. The second time, it was the same, plus, the peas were undercooked. Yuck. I don't know what happened to them, and I feel bad, because this place should be a sought after destinastion. It seems as if there is some cost cutting going on in the kitchen. I hope they turn it around.

              new chef was the long time sous chef, so I wouldnt blame that. Just sounds like an off night.. I dont think no lime wedges is a thought out cost cutting measure.
