Hampden is one of Baltimore's funkier blue-collar neighborhoods, and Frazier's On The Avenue is one of this area's favorite bars. During weeknight happy hours, the place is packed with young urban professionals who amble in for the great drink specials and the excellent bar fare, which includes steaks, hamburgers and seafood dishes. A large collection of stuffed ducks and vintage photographs give the dining room a homey touch.
In a lot of ways the northwest Baltimore neighborhood of Hampden is like a blue-collar Greenwich Village. There's a decidedly bohemian tint to the place, and it has the art galleries to prove it, but the area also has a down-home side. This tiny establishment (there are 12 tables because 13 wouldn't fit) is a great example. The Burritos, Chiles Rellenos, Tacos and Quesadillas served here show Mexican cooking at its simplest and best. The ingredients are fresh, the prices are low and the portions are mammoth.
There is an informal tradition among Baltimore waitresses to address customers as 'Hon' (pronounced to rhyme with 'bun.') Over the years, the term has come to symbolize the town's casual hospitality` and as such, it suits this friendly café perfectly. Located in Hampden, it has the ambiance of a suburban kitchen circa 1955, and the menu fits the décor just right. Dishes like Four Cheese Lasagna and 'Much Better Than Mom's' Meatloaf are guaranteed to stick to your ribs, and the Crab cake Platter does Baltimore proud.
This small, somewhat eccentric café is a local favorite. The décor is certainly part of the café's charm- bright primary colors abound, the thrift store furniture is mismatched; mannequins, dolls and other toys decorate the window sills, walls and even the ceiling. But it's the food that keeps the locals coming back. It's a terrific blend of traditional home cooking and lighter vegetarian fare. The French toast (served all day) is one of the city's treasures.
Ahoy! seafood lovers, Pappas Restaurant awaits you with their tantalizing fare of delights from the waters.
