Food Weekend in Baltimore

Over the weekend we went to Baltimore, so we took a few days off from cooking. But while we were there we ate some great food that has to be shared on our food blog (even though no cooking was required).

We had dinner on Friday night at Phillips Seafood in the Inner Harbor. I had lobster bisque and salt & pepper calamari. Jamie ordered the Fried Seafood Platter, which had a Maryland crab cake, fried shrimp and fried flounder. I wasn't impressed with the crab cake, but the rest was great!

Saturday morning I attended a brunch where there was a buffet of wonderful foods; tea sandwiches, eggs, sausage & bacon, southern biscuits & gravy, eggs Benedict, a grits station and an English cheese display. I tasted a little bit of everything! To cap it off, we all tasted 4 kinds of cake -- chocolate, almond, butter, and blueberry...and a few slices to take home!

Saturday we ate dinner at Brick Oven Pizza (BOP) in another area called Fells Point. I didn't take a picture of the pizzas...I don't know why. Probably because I was so hungry that taking pictures was the last thing on my mind. We had one with mushroom & Canadian bacon, and one plain cheese. The plain cheese was free from a coupon we got on the water taxi! This pizza joint was featured on Diners, Drive-In's and Dives on the Food Network, so that was cool, and the pizza was definitely great -- we ate every piece.

Sunday morning we ate breakfast at Tug's, the restaurant in our hotel. We both had Chesapeake Benedict, which is Eggs Benedict with lump crab meat instead of ham. It was super delicious.
