Baltimore md

Any thoughts about either Crush or Salt in the Baltimore area? Thanks in advance

  1. I am a big fan of Crush - have been there twice this year. I can remember having short ribs, salmon, and maybe rockfish (can't remember) - all were good. They also have a blueberry dessert that is fantastic. Unfortunately I still have never been to Salt, but I have only heard good things about it.

    1. I enjoy the lobster mac and cheese at Crush. They also have a nice grapefruit crush drink. It is much easier to access, Salt is kind of small and out of the way.

      Salt has a fun menu. I prefer the location of Crush, but I like the food at Salt a bit more. I feel that the menu is well-executed at Salt, plus they have some fantastic duck fat fries.

      1. I definitely prefer Salt. I like Crush (and it's very convenient to where I live), but I've never been wowed by the food like I've been at Salt. My favorite things at Crush have been their desserts, and even in that category, I greatly prefer Salt's incredible little doughnuts or mini delectable ice cream cones.

          Many thanks to all three of you; may wife and I are visiting, and your input is much appreciated.
          By the way, last night had an excellent dinner at Petit Louis, and today an outstanding lunch at Les Folies in Annapolis, so we're well fed...Thanks again. dmm
