Artifact Coffee

29 Nov
One of my favorite spots in Baltimore for a meal is Woodberry Kitchen. However, I didn’t plan ahead when I was back there so we were unable to get a reservation. Lucky for us, the same owners recently opened a coffee shop just steps from the restaurant called Artifact Coffee. Just like Woodberry Kitchen, they are very accommodating for those who need to eat gluten-free. They are able to substitute GF english muffins for their breakfast sandwiches and GF bread for their sandwiches. I ordered the roast beef sandwich.
This sandwich had roast beef, red onion, greens, horseradish mayonnaise and asiago cheese. It was quite delicious. This is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat and a cup of coffee or tea!

Flying Avocado

There aren’t too many places for GF sandwiches in Baltimore. That is okay though when you have a place like Flying Avocado to go to. I usually order the Roasted Turkey and Pesto sandwich. This comes with sliced turkey breast, pesto, roasted red peppers, goat cheese and field greens.

Grano Emporio

27 Jun

In the wonderfully quirky neighborhood of Hampden, which is in the northwest area of Baltimore, there are two great options for GF pasta. Grano Emporio and Grano Pasta Bar are located just blocks from each other. If you are a party of two or less, I would recommend dining at the Pasta Bar which is a charming, casual option for dinner. For more than two people, head over to Grano Emporio which has a more extensive menu. This time, I started with caesar salad which is topped by GF plantains. I then had the Farfalle con Piselli e Pancetta with GF pasta.

This had peas, pancetta, caramelized onions and lots of flavor!

Woodberry Kitchen

Even if they didn’t have a gluten-free menu, Woodberry Kitchen would be one of my favorite restaurants in Baltimore. So the fact that they do makes it that much more amazing. The chef”s wife has celiac so you know you are good hands when you go there. While perusing the menu, I munched on the GF bread that they brought me.

We ordered the ladyfinger popcorn to start, which at $1.00 is a steal. These mini kernels are perfectly dressed with butter and salt.

I then ordered the zucchini dip which was served with GF crackers and radish.

For my main dish, I had the special steak which was nice and tender. Then came dessert. Whenever I go there, I typically get one scoop of their homemade vanilla ice cream (without the cookie). However, this time around, they had a flavor on the menu that was too good to pass up… homemade peanut cream.

We lived in Baltimore City for three years and came to love the area. There are so many great options for GF dining there and it is just a city with a lot of personality. We had a great time visiting our old stomping grounds while taking in the Blue Angels flying over the area in celebration of “Sailabration“, an incredible event that the city put on to commemorate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. After reminiscing and catching up with friends, we headed over to one of our favorite restaurants, Cinghiale. This spot offers GF pasta and the servers are always knowledgable about what is safe to eat. I ordered the gluten-free pasta with the Cinghiale Ragu. Even though I don’t have a picture of it, trust me when I say that it was wonderful.
