Flavors of Federal Hill For All
Charm City Food Tours introduces Federal Hill as its newest location. Unlike more traditional tours, these food tours are not just for newcomers. Locals and tourists alike can experience the unique flavors of fine dining in Baltimore. In addition to great tastes for the palate, the tours also provide food for thought as participants learn about local history and architecture.
The Federal Hill tour makes stops at different restaurants each time. Participating establishments include: Big Jim’s Deli, Abbey Burger Bistro, Scarborough Fair Bed & Breakfast, Cross Street Market, Trattoria Anna Maria, and Dangerously Delicious Pies. More venues will be added to the route in the future.
Since my recent discovery of Federal Hill, I've done a little food touring of my own. There are so many great options! I've gotten hooked on Byblos Lebanese Cuisine. Located at 1033 Light Street, Byblos is relatively new, but I predict it will becomes as historic as the neighborhood itself. Dishes include traditional middle eastern entrees such as falafel, babaganoush, and both spinach and meat pies. They also serve desserts and even vegan options! Not to mention, owners Sami Tabet and his wife Hala Tabet fit in perfectly with their Fellow Federal Hill-ers: kind, friendly, and dedicated, not only to their restaurant but to the Federal Hill neighborhood as well. If Byblos does not get added to the food tours in the future, be sure to check it out on your own personal food tour.
