We were cruising the Avenue on Sunday to find an interesting place to brunch. While we had always enjoyed dining at the Food Market, we had never checked out their brunch menu. We were delighted to find a long list of really interesting dishes that ranged from creative tweaks on the usual egg dishes to more unusual seafood preparations. Everything was delicious and nicely presented, and service was excellent. Best of all, the restaurant was only half-full, so it wasn't as noisy as it gets in the evening.

Service was excellent. The smokey bowl is delicious. We ordered the blueberry pancakes appetizer for my kids. Two of the 3 pancakes were raw in the middle (so gross). If you can't cook a pancake- I'm nervous about everything else! My husband had the tacos because he doesn't love breakfast food. It came with a small salad which had no business being. Ext to tacos. It was covered in parm but because of the bowl the salad was in, when you took a piece of lettuce out, all the cheese fell out of the bowl. The tacos were underwhelming and definitely needed some acidity. The crab chowder had lots of crab but not much depth of flavor. We wouldn't go back.

Located in the trendy and up and coming Hampden hood, I came here for dinner. It's an industrial interior with a nice bar . The bartender suggested I go with the pistachio crusted lamb rack served with white bean puree, sautéed baby kale, balsamic vinegar. I had a Duckpin beer with that meal. It was pretty good and I was stuffed. Looks like it could be a busy spot on weekend nights and there are other options for food especially seafood options as well that look good.

Came for brunch and glad we did. Great food! Highly recommend the avocado toast (avocado, poached egg, smoked salmon on ciabatta). Good coffee. Basil lemonade cocktail very refreshing. Reasonable prices. Delicious bowl of piping hot donut holes served while we waited. If we lived nearby, we would come here regularly. Ample street parking in the neighborhood.

Great atmosphere and food. Location is off the beaten tourist path. Appears to be a locals favorite. Reasonable prices and fantastic cocktails. I'll definitely go back next time I am in Baltimore.
