1132 S Hanover St, Baltimore, MD 21230

Elizabeth Gall: “I started coming here to see a friend's band and would recommend even on nights where there isn't live music. It's a tiny rowhouse dive bar - you might wait for a seat, but you won't be 3 people deep waiting for an overpriced, watered down cocktail. Make sure to get the Evil shot (their take on the [Lithuanian] krupnikas). It tastes like Christmas and bad decisions.”


Mad River Bar & Grille

1110 S Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21230

Alan Cantrell: “Burgers were great, evidently they reworked their menu a couple months ago, so whatever they did must have worked. We were there before the rush, so really good service.”


Banditos Bar & Kitchen

1118 S Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21230

Steven Lunsford:“Pretty good. Their guac was tasty and the serving size was pretty large. The cubano was GIGANTIC. It came with a massive pile of fries too. It was good, and there was definitely enough to take home for lunch tomorrow. They also have decent drink and food specials at happy hour.”


Mi & Yu Noodle Bar

1016 S Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21230

Michelle Finan: “A stand out noodle bar in baltimore. The short rib is cooked to the 9s and the miso broth is a spicy treat. There's a soft boiled egg on every order and it's generally too big for me to eat in one sitting. It can be busy so a little slower than your average take out but don't freak out because it's worth it.”


Matsuri Restaurant

1105 S Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21230

Nathan Kemp: “Sushi tasted very fresh. I ordered the spicy lunch maki maki special. The maki rolls were actually spicy! Most places say spicy but they aren't very. It wasn't overwhelming, but still tasty. I got a side of shumai as well, and they were good. A little small, but the taste was nice.”
