Road Trip – Maryland

East coast road trip! First stop: Baltimore, Maryland. Spent some time out on the waterfront at Phillips Crab Deck with music from the Hard Rock playing in the distance. No clams here—just crab—Phillips is famous for crab. Soup is light and creamy with lots of blue crab. Fresh local oysters with a really nice, clean flavor in a crisp light brine.

In the photo below that’s an “ice cream burger” on the upper left with aged balsamic vinegar; the chilled local oysters on the right; cheesy mac, crab and dogs (?) on the lower left (which I missed out on trying, but did like how they looked); and a cold “Nati Bo” beer at Dempseys pub while enjoying the O’s game.

Onto more adventures this weekend…
