Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers: Who Wins the Super Bowl of Food?

Ed Levine 33 comments

Ahh, yes, it's Super Bowl time, and for serious eaters that means that the first contest between the 49ers and Ravens is of course a food tussle. Which city's food is better? San Francisco is a clear favorite, but Baltimore has enough hidden gems to make it interesting at the very least. We divided the game into four quarters: pizza, sandwiches, shellfish, and ice cream. Let's see who wins our Super Bowl of Food. More

Paulie Gee to Open a Baltimore Location with 'Pizzablogger'

Slice Adam Kuban 39 comments

Popular Brooklyn pizzeria Paulie Gee's will open a branch in Baltimore in 2013, Slice has learned. Paul Giannone, whose transformation from IT manager to renowned pizza-maker is well-documented on this site (among many other places), is partnering with Baltimore local "Pizzablogger" (who asked to remain anonymous), at what will be called Paulie Gee's Hampden.

Openings: Verde Pizza Napoletana, Baltimore

Slice Pizzablogger 6 comments

Nine words and a name piqued my pizza curiosity: Imported smoked buffalo mozarella, sliced lemons, and fresh basil. The Sorrentina. Another word immediately leapt to mind; Keste. More

A Sandwich a Day: Crab Cake Sandwich at Duda's Tavern in Baltimore

A Sandwich a Day Krista Garcia 1 comment

Just as you'll never come to a consensus on the best NYC slice or Philly cheesesteak, there isn't a unanimous Baltimore crab cake winner either. Duda's Tavern, a slightly divey bar in less-than-divey Fells Point, serves a pretty exemplar rendition, though. More

Burger City Guides: Duff Goldman's Favorite Burgers in Baltimore

A Hamburger Today Allegra Ben-Amotz 23 comments

Duff Goldman is Baltimore's most badass baker. He's trained with chef Cindy Wolf, wields blowtorches and power tools to decorate his Charm City Cakes creations, and plays bass in a rock band. A new Los Angeles outpost of his bakery and his most recent Food Network show Sugar High have him traveling all over the country, but Duff will always have a place in Charm City, hon. Here are Duff's top five burgers in Baltimore. More

Baltimore: Crabcake-Topped Burger at Oriole Park at Camden Yards

A Hamburger Today Erin Zimmer 10 comments

This is about as Maryland as a burger gets: a crabcake, seasoned with plenty of Old Bay, of course, on top of a burger patty. The "Camden Giant" is available this season at the new Gino's stand at Camden Yards, home to the Baltimore Orioles. Check out this steak-and-cake special smushed inside a Martin's potato bun. More

The Search for America's Best Tacos: East Coast Contenders

The Serious Eats Team 23 comments

We're not going to lie: As any West Coast or Southwestern transplant can tell you, finding great tacos on the East Coast is no easy task, but it's not impossible. You just have to be willing to go a bit off the beaten path. Head to neighborhoods with large Mexican immigrant populations and the trucks hanging out on street corners. The east coast is where we also found some more of the high-end chefs making everything from the ultra-traditional to the far more rarefied taco. More

New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens: Which Team Is the AFC Champ of Food?

The Serious Eats Team 40 comments

Now that you've heard Ed break down the Giants and 49ers game this weekend—with predicted scores determined by their respective food town cred—it's time to talk about the Patriots and Ravens game. This one might be a little less fair since "New England" covers a sizable territory, but Baltimore has its share of serious eats to be sure. Here's a breakdown of all four quarters in the following categories: shellfish, beef sandwiches, pizza, and sweets. More

Cakespy: Smearcase

A soft, cakey "crust" encases a big ol' smear of gooey cream cheese-based custard filling; when sliced into squares, it's sort of like cheesecake condensed into a bar cookie form. More

A Sandwich a Day: The Corned Beef on Rye at Attman's Delicatessen in Baltimore, MD

A Sandwich a Day J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

Attman's, located in Baltimore's Corned Beef Row, bills itself as a real Lower East Side-style New York Jewish delicatessen. The atmosphere and attitude are spot on. The service is gruff and fast-paced—you'd better know what you want before you start talking to the deli man. After I ordered my corned beef on rye, I jumped in with a last-minute decision: "I'll have a hot dog too, please." More

Baltimore: As Good as Greek Pies Get at Matthew's Pizza

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 42 comments

Matthew's Pizza in Baltimore doesn't actually refer to itself as Greek pizza, but given its close adherence to the form and it's close proximity to Baltimore's Greek Town, I'm going to go out on a limb and call it out for what it is, regardless of what they call it there. Baltimore-style? Pan pizza? It's all Greek to me. More

Baltimore: Last Season to Visit the Famous Obrycki's Crab House

Shell Tu 12 comments

Obrycki's Crab House has been since 1944, but this is the last season you'll be able to get your crab on (whether snow crab, Dungeness crab, or their famous hard-shell blue crabs) at the Baltimore institution. Over the years, the ownership has changed as did the location (in 1986 they moved across the street), but current owner Rob Cernak decided to close after a death in the family. You have until November 5th to walk in and still hear the sound of mallets striking crab shells. More

Daily Slice: Primo at Johnny Rad's, Baltimore

Slice Pizzablogger 3 comments

Open for nearly a year now, Johnny Rad's has established a foothold as one of the better pizza options in Baltimore City. Twelve pizzas comprise the regular offerings on the menu, which are available in either 11" or 15" sizes at relatively reasonable prices. The quality metric at a pizzeria can usually be best determined by its more basic offerings and the Primo at Johnny Rad's generally delivers. More

Daily Slice: Il Corridore at Iggies, Baltimore

Slice Pizzablogger 4 comments

When I don't have time to crank out pies at home, which is most of the time lately, I head to Iggies for a thin crust pizza that, while not a copy of the Rosa, is highly evocative of the flavors of that pizza. More

United States of Pizza: Maryland

Slice Alexander Edelman 28 comments

From Baltimore to Bethesda, Silver Spring to Frederick, the quality of pizza in Maryland is rising. In order to find out the best places for slices and pies in the great state of Maryland, we checked in with Marylanders among the Serious Eats community, plus friend of Slice (and Maryland pizza expert) Pizzablogger and Richard Gorelick from the Baltimore Sun.

Food Network confirmed on Sunday that Ace of Cakes is no more. Elaborate cake-baker Duff Goldman, known for his fondant craftiness at the Baltimore-based Charm City Cakes bakery, will be on camera in one last season, which begins in January. According to ABC News, the final (tenth) season will consist of six episodes. More

'Where Can I Get Good Pizza in Baltimore?'

Slice Adam Kuban 23 comments

Reaching in to the Slice mailbag, we've got a plaintive query from Brian M., who sends us some pics of a jumbo slice from Angelo's in Baltimore before asking for pizza recs in Charm City. [Photographs: Brian M.] I was just reading your "pizza styles" section and saw the DC jumbo slice. Figured I'd send you some pics of the hugest slice I've ever seen/eaten from Angelo's Pizza in Baltimore.... More
