Ida B's Table in Baltimore

Had such a great time having lunch at Ida B’s Table in Baltimore!   The staff, the atmosphere and the food all added to our very cool and quaint experience.  We enjoyed some great vegan dishes offered by the restaurant that even a meat lover would enjoy.  The Eggplant Burger was hands down my favorite dish!  Ida B’s Table is a modern soul food restaurant with a bar, parlor, drawing room, and main dining room.  The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, small plates during happy hour, and dinner.

From the website:

Ida B’s Table is named in honor of Ida B. Wells, the pioneering journalist and anti-lynching activist. Ida Bell Wells-Barnett (1862 – 1931) was a contemporary of W.E.B Dubois and Susan B. Anthony, writing and campaigning for justice around the world. She was one of the founders of the NAACP in 1909, and in 1990 the USPS issued a 25-cent postage stamp of her likeness.

Here are the details on what Dayna and I enjoyed for lunch:

Dinner at Magdalena Baltimore in the Ivy Hotel

So let’s talk about this amazing dinner I had at the restaurant Magdalena inside of Baltimore’s super chic “The Ivy Hotel.”  The  Magdalena boasts itself as a fine-dining bistro and a culinary jewel of Baltimore.  I COULDN’T AGREE MORE!

The menu is built upon the finest local ingredients, and changes with the seasons and the inspiration of the chef.  The chef, Mark Levy, is doing a little more than cooking in that kitchen, he is putting love and skill in these dishes.

My guest and I were amazed at how beautifully plated each dish was as well as the combination of flavors.

Favorite Appetizer: Raw & Shellfish Platter & Salad of Belgian Endive & Braeburn Apple

Favorite Entree: Roasted Magret Duck Breast, Corn Blinis, Grilled Peach, Chanterelles & Duck Sausage Gravy

Favorite Desert:  Meyer Lemon & Huckleberry Sundae, Olive Oil Cake & Coconut Cream

The details:

Magdalena is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday.  Reservations are suggested.

Light Up Lexington

Talk about an evening to remember!  I had such a fun time at “Light up Lexington” at one of Baltimore’s long standing landmarks, Lexington Market!   Live music, beer, and great food always seem to make a perfect combination and Lexington Market nailed it on the head!  I ran into Amy from Charm City Cook who worked her magic to pair local chefs with some of the Lexington Market vendors.  What a cool idea!

I love Failey’s crab cakes and it was great trying something new at Lexington Market.  I have high hopes for “Light up Lexington” and hopefully this means they will attract new customers and potentially new vendors.  Lexington Market has been around for over 200 years and I would love to see it continue to be apart of Baltimore’s history for another 200 years.

Lexington Market Vendors included Failey’s Seafood, Berger’s Bakery, Dudley’s Fries, Sausage Master, Park’s Fried Chicken, Park’s Hamburger’s, Paul’s BBQ, Memsahib, and Healthy Choice.

Outside participants included Clementine, Cafe Cito, Penn & Quill, Sobo Cafe, The Corner Pantry, Alewife, The Local Fry and Dooby’s.

Stay Tuned for the next “Light up Lexington!”
