Grand Cru?

Is it the Prime Rib?

Baltimore Pho?

Gin Mill


Okay, just so you can stop all that speculation about my "basement," I ripped out the "breakfast bar" in my apartment because it was built to a height of about four and a half feet. You would have needed booster seats in most bar stools. So, no.

And the same rule applies: You must be able to get a Baltimore Sun at regular retail price that morning in the town/vicinity it's in for the place to qualify. Also as a rule, it has to serve at least SOME adult-strength beverage or potable, though that's the point in most every case--no Chuck E Cheese's or Dairy Queen need apply.

Did one of you get it yet? Maybe, maybe not. I ain't sayin'



is it Connely's funeral home? Ugh..that's some BAD taste!

Blue Sea Grill

Since no one has guessed the mystery bar yet, I'll toss a clue out there: This place is somewhere between Mount Vernon and Brewer's Hill.

brewers hill pub?

The Towson Diner?

la Scala



This gray background is depressing.

tapas teatro?

Yo, Sam, if nobody guesses it, do *I* get the prize?

I think the longer it takes to guess/name it, the bigger the prize should be!

Da Mimo?

Donna's in Mt Vernon? it ixia?

Mt. Vernon Stable

taverna corvino?

Butts and Betty's?

XS ?


Gertrude's in the BMA?

The Blue Oyster


Grand Central
