During Baltimore restaurant week, I enjoyed the most amazing meal at B&O American Brasserie. By amazing, I mean from the appetizers to desert and not to mention the service was well matched. My friend, Tierra, treated me for my birthday and I must admit this was by far my most favorite present!!! To begin our meal, we started with Roasted Figs and Brussel Sprouts. Yum! This was the first time I have ever had Roasted Figs and they were just oozing with flavor complimented by goat cheese and lamb-bacon. The Brussel Sprouts were cooked with bacon lardons and a mustard creme topped with thin slices of granny smith apples. Both appetizers were a delightful treat and even if you want to try this place and not order tons of food, you can just try these two appetizers with a great glass of wine! For the main course, I enjoyed a perfectly cooked butchers steak and white truffle percorino fries. Simply amazing. Desert was the most perfect ending. (Side note, I’m not a desert person) I loved the expresso cheesecake, I was the perfect amount and I ate every last drop. B&O American Brasserie was probably the most perfect dining experience I have had in a long time! The hostess was very nice. I left my phone in the car and she ran outside to get it for me. The waiter was very attentive and recommended all of our choices that night. He also gave me a great champagne cocktail with pear juice, which was amazeballs. B&O American Brasserie is located at: 2 North Charles Street, Baltimore MD 21201

After hearing about this restaurant on numerous occasions, I finally had a chance to visit The Land of Kush in Baltimore over the weekend. The Land of Kush is a vegan restaurant with an awesome selection of food that even a non-vegetarian like me would enjoy! As usual, I asked about their best dishes then ordered them as suggested. Ribs, macaroni & cheese, collard greens and their house lemonade, I must stress, is a great introduction to the restaurant. The food was well-seasoned and the lemonade was simply amazing.
While I enjoyed the food thoroughly, I would say the only thing that was missing was a family environment. For some reason, I expected a place more like Cheers, where everyone knows your name. A place where you become a regular and they know exactly what you want before you do. The vibe seemed more like a carry out spot. But then again, maybe that is what they are going for… Well, until next time, The Land of Kush, I will be back to try those lentil burgers!!
