Weekend in Baltimore

Hey everyone! I'm gonna be spending a weekend in Baltimore in September. I'm looking for MUST EAT places. I heard something about a great BBQ place in the area so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. Also heard something about some great Seafood. All casual places/ expensive/fancy spots.

Besides good food spots, I'm also interested in any bars that have a good beer selection. I'm a huge craft beer loon and would love to try something new.

  1. I was just at Rocket to Venus in Hampden last night for the first time in a while and I'm pretty high on it. The food was mostly great, the atmosphere is both slick and casual simultaneously, and the beer selection was good and cheap. The banh mi was fantastic, as were the fried pickles.

    A lot of my divier suggestions have let me down lately but I suppose I still recommend Swallow at the Hollow on Northern pkwy and York rd. Old school. Also Hull Street Blues Cafe in Locust Point is great. Their brunch buffet is particularly awesome.
