Kale Salad with Golden Raisin Vinaigrette
$$$, Modern, Full Bar, American, Seafood, South Baltimore
"A salad a day keeps the doctor away. Had a great time with friends doing what we do. Trying new places, tasty treats. The space has a very interesting setup. I like that the bar is a separate space for people to gather @minnowbaltimore. Pictured here: kale salad w/ quinoa, butternut squash, golden raisin vinaigrette, crispy chickpeas."
Lamb Albondigas
$$$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Modern, Full Bar, Spanish, Woodberry
"Date night with my better half. Had some great little bites @lacucharabaltimore. Besides that bread board that would make me come back, but wasn't available. Lamb albondigas was a tasty little treat. Love that they change the menu weekly. If you haven't been, it's a great space."
