Q and A With Sarah Bregel of BHealthyBMore

Source: Baltimore Eats

Here at Baltimore Eats, we are huge fans of BHealthyBMore. The new website, which focuses on fun, fitness and food in Baltimore, is a great resource for everything from yoga classes to low-calorie happy hour food. Sarah Bregel, a writer and personal trainer, started the site earlier this year and she’s already been featured in Baltimore magazine and on WBAL! We recommend the site to any Baltimorean looking to inject a little (or a lot) of health into his or her life. To learn more, we asked Sarah a few questions about healthy living in Charm City, including where to ...

FACES 2012: The Process of Recycling Our Lives Event Recap

Source: Baltimore Eats

Wednesday evening I had the pleasure of attending an event at The American Visionary Art Museum to benefit The Children’s Home. Founded in 1863 as a home for orphaned children, The Children’s Home continues to succeed and expand its mission; to provide a home for Maryland’s abandoned, neglected or abused children, while nurturing them in a secure environment, and setting them up for a successful future.

The evening started out with a guided tour of the AVAM’s current exhibits and we were also given time to mull about the museum and ignite our senses.

Next we moved into the ballroom ...

Keeping Close Thais with Baltimore

Source: Baltimore Eats

Charm City isn’t exactly known for its Thai food. The closer you get to Washington DC, you’re likely to find more Thai food than you’d be able to eat in a lifetime, but up here, good food from Thailand is bit harder to come by. I don’t know why exactly that is, but I do know that I’d love it if Baltimore had a few more Thai restaurants. Thai is second only to Mexican in my favorite kinds of cuisines; it’s spicy, healthy and surprisingly versatile, too.

One of all-time favorite restaurants of any type of cuisine is Thai Landing ...

Baltimore Soul (Food)

Source: Baltimore Eats

Something about fall puts me in the mood for soul food. Cornbread, fried chicken and collard greens hit exactly the right spot on a snappy autumn night. Baltimore, while obviously not the soul food capital of the world, does have a few spots where you can kick back with a crock of grits and a tall sweet tea (make it a hot tea if you’re as big of a wuss about cold weather as I am). 

Darker Than Blue serves a version of upscale soul food, mixed with lowcountry favorites. We recommend the chicken and waffles and the fried catfish ...

"We’ll Even Stomp On Some Grapes For You": A Baltimore Eats Q and A With Stephanie Hershkovitz of Hersh’s Pizza And Drinks

Source: Baltimore Eats

Doing anything tonight? No? Well then, you should get yourself down to Hersh’s Pizza And Drinks. The charming pizza place/bar in Federal Hill has been open for about a year now, and it’s one of our favorite places to kick back with a pie and a brew. But the pizza, beer and cocktails at Hersh’s aren’t like those at your regular neighborhood sports bar: Hersh’s offerings are a few notches about the rest. Think housemade grenadine and mozzarella, fresh basil, and dill aioli. We talked to co-owner Stephanie Hershkovitz about what makes Hersh’s a special place to grab a slice.

Vote In Our Poll: What’s The Best Independent Coffee Shop In Baltimore?

Source: Baltimore Eats

There are few things I enjoy more than curling up with a skim latte and a muffin in front of a coffee shop window, people-watching and enjoying the day. As a writer, I also love to bring my laptop and work; for some reason, I’m likely to get into the “zone” when I’m surrounded by the smell of freshly roasted beans and the chatter of other patrons.

But I have to admit it: I’m not really a Starbucks girl. Not that I don’t enjoy some of their offerings, mind you, but I’m more of a local haunt type of person. ...
