This is a very hip place. Lots of energy and a very attentive wait staff. The menu constantly changes. The Steak Frite is a winner and uniquely presented. The Chicken covered in smoked Guda was fabulous, served with potato hash. They have valet parking in this hard to find a place to park section of Baltimore. Make your reservations in... More

In Hampden, one of my favorite restaurants for an upscale meal is The Food Market, I've been there numerous times for dinner but never for brunch. That all changed last week when me and a few friends headed... More

We made a return visit here, having just loved it the first time. Our intention was to try some items that had appealed to us the last time we were there. We had actually already decided what to order when we got there. While waiting for our table, we perused the Restaurant Week menu. Oh, my. Everything looked so good!... More

Hampden continues to surprise and roll out good, creative, enjoyable restaurants. The Avenue is still a foodies destination. As soon as you enter you encounter a good strong vibe. The creative menu - both food and drink - entices you to try new things, and old things with a new twist. Thoroughly enjoyed my first, but certainly not last visit.
