1) Last Friday night we went to Woodberry Kitchen. Super trendy, loud. Brick walls, built into an old foundry. Small plates, funky food, all organic. On the pricey side.
Lots of "important" or at least self-important people were there. Waitstaff highly fashionable.
2) Saturday night went to Dizzy Issie's, a neighborhood bar. Small place. BIG plates. Guinness and Stella Artois on draft. Flat screen TV's. A real blue collar area in Remington. (also had brick walls). But the chef was really good. Had a fine NY Strip, with string beans and sweet potato fries and my wife had Bouillabaise (Yes, in a bar!). Working folks eating there. Baltimore's best people.
I liked the 2nd place a whole lot better and, as you might figure, it was half the price.
