If there’s one thing the city of Baltimore is known for, it is for its delicious food. Indeed, Baltimore is known not just in Maryland, but the entire country for its sumptuous food of wide choices. Dubbed as the world’s crab capital, crabs and seafood in the city are definitely world class. But there are more to offer in Charm City than just its crab and seafood, and a lot of tourists really loved them.
First up is the delicious pizza. Corey McLaughlin wrote an awesome review in Baltimore Magazine about one of the most delicious pizza and pies in Baltimore. Read the review below to see for yourself.
Easy as Pie
Two couples move their pizza business into Union Collective.
The seed for Well Crafted Kitchen—the pizza counter serving delicious wood-fired pies from a space at Union Collective—was planted six years ago when co-owners Liz and Ryan Bower, then working as local wedding photographers, were taking engagement shots of their best friends Laura and Tom Wagner.
After the session, the four Bucknell University alums sat around a campfire in Upstate New York and mulled the idea of running a food business together, though they relegated it to their wish list at the time.
Two years later, in 2015, the Bowers embarked on a cross-country RV trip. They dubbed it “The Amazing Marriage Adventure.” The idea, hatched from their disillusionment with wedding-day drama, was to meet, interview, and photograph couples in all 50 states, ranging from newlyweds to 50-plus-year partnerships, to see what real married life looked like around the country and pass that knowledge on to their clients.
On the yearlong journey, they shared their experiences and continued to discuss the possibility of running a food business with the Wagners. Before they returned from the road trip, which also included a three-week European jaunt, where they ate pizza and photographed a wedding in Florence, Italy, they solidified plans to launch Well Crafted Pizza, convincing Laura and Tom to move from Brooklyn to Baltimore. By spring of 2016, the business was born in the form of a modernized 1949 Dodge pickup truck.
Now, in addition to the food truck, there’s Well Crafted Kitchen, a brick-and-mortar joint inside the industrial-style barroom at Union Collective, the redeveloped former Sears warehouse off I-83. Read the rest of the review here…
It is indeed one delicious pizza and pie. And the owners of this restaurant is looking to expand their business to cater more customer. Next on our list is the delicious taco in Hampden and their planned expansion in March. Ethan McLeod wrote about this famous taco in Baltimore in his article at Baltimore Fishbowl.
Team behind Papi’s Tacos in Hampden eyes mid-March opening
Baltimore restaurateur Charlie Gjerde says his team is “coming down the home stretch” for its anticipated Papi’s Tacos location in Hampden, and is tentatively eyeing an opening in mid-March.
The eatery and bar, being built out of the space at 3820 Falls Road that for decades housed Dmitri’s Tavern, will have space for 110 customers and a setup similar to its sister, flagship Fells Point location, with a bar side and a dining side. Gjerde said the property “needed a complete overhaul, so we went down to the bare walls and started from scratch.”
Everything inside is thus brand new, said the restaurateur, who runs several other restaurants with his wife, Lori, and sister-in-law, Carrie Podles, including Wicked Sisters just up Falls Road, Alexander’s Tavern in Fells Point and Huck’s American Craft in Brewers Hill.
The new space is larger than the original Papi’s, allowing more room for events and, uniquely, the ability to serve al pastor tacos, in which meat is cooked over a spit and apportioned for tacos freshly cooked. And with the 25-space parking lot out back, they’re planning an outdoor Cinco de Mayo party, complete with live music.
But before they can open, Gjerde’s team still has to obtain a liquor license, for which they have a transfer hearing scheduled next Thursday. They also need to obtain all necessary permits from the city, which means they don’t have an exact opening day just yet. But it’s approaching soon. See full post here…
For taco lovers out there, this is really some good news. Their planned new space is much larger and can cater more people. There are also function rooms for groups of people. As mentioned in this post, several of the best restaurants in Baltimore was already featured on TV. There are a bunch of these restaurants and dining experience as seen on TV, and these restaurants are compiled in Visit Baltimore.

The Cooking Channel show also featured tender pit beef at Beef Barons, fried cheese balls at La Cuchara, which offers Basque cuisine, and Korean-inspired street noodles at Dooby’s.
