Things are happening in the Baltimore restaurant scene. Here’s a little recap:
New dinner/cocktail menu at B&O American Brasserie
B&O Is one of my favorites for delicious food from the acclaimed Mike Ransom and amazing drinks from the mind of bartender extraordinaire, Brendan Dorr, so I was excited to check out the new menus at B&O*. I took Katharine with me and we tried the octo taco (charred octopus in a jicama shell), raviolo in sweet brown butter, scallops with farro verde, and several other dishes. Check out the G&T menu with all kinds of G&T-named drinks.
*Yep, I didn’t have to pay for the meal. Yep, opinions are all mine.
