Casual Eats- Baltimore

MegMD Jul 8, 2010 09:47 AM

I want to go grab a casual bite with my husband for my birthday... and since having a baby a year ago...we are OUT OF TOUCH with some good places to try out.

Id like something casual and relaxed and not overly pricey.

Suggestions please!

      I would recommend McCabe's which has recently reopened. A variety of dinners on their menu from sandwiches, ribs to crabcakes- the daily specials are outstanding. McCabes is located on Falls Road in Hampden. Happy birthday!

      4800 Hampden Ln Ste 103, Bethesda, MD 20814

          Zorbas is great. Can Park @ The Bank For Free AFTER hours. The Grilled Meats (Steak/Chicken) are scrumptious. Oh, eat upstairs too. It's less of a headache..

          McCabes used to have an excellent reputation for FRESH (meaning not frozen patties) burgers and fries..I haven't been since they closed ?? (I don't know if they do Sysco Frozen now or what :/ )
