Monday Morning Quarterbacking: Sam's Kid
Yesterday my review of Sam's Kid appeared in the A & E section.
This is the latest in what I hope will be a trend in Baltimore's Asian restaurants: places that are stylish and fun as well as having good food. Reasonable prices don't hurt either.
The other restaurant that comes immediately to mind in this category is Minato, after it moved up Charles Street. ...
I can't decide whether Red Maple counts or not. It certainly has lots of cutting-edge style and Asian tapas have been a specialty, but I don't think of it as an Asian restaurant.
It's interesting that Sam's Kid is one of three tapas restaurants in Fells Point. We've had neighborhoods that specialize in bars, and neighborhoods that specialize in cuisines, like Little Italy. Can you have a neighborhood that specializes in how people like to eat these days?
