What’s On The Menu showcases Baltimore’s masterful chefs and the most creative, unique eateries in town. While chefs prepare a signature dish from their menu, they share stories from the kitchen and how the city has inspired their cooking. This episode is all about digging into the aesthetics of a perfectly plated dish and exploring the power of a beautifully designed restaurant.

Alma Cocina Latina

If you are searching for a space where you can relax and enjoy cuisine full of Venezuelan culture, Alma is the perfect place for you. The art displayed on the plate is what some would call unexpectedly put together yet incredibly creative. Every detai in the Baltimore restaurant is breathtaking, from the culinary experience to the cocktails as well as the abundance of plants and vibrant décor.

Foraged

Foraged was created from a chef’s love of finding food in nature then cooking it. Each item on the menu is from the farm to the table, all grown locally and served seasonally which means that the menu is in constant rotation and gives an opportunity to incorporate new flavors and ingredients. The mushrooms and other plants are picked from the woods right outside of the city by the chef himself, so it’s not a surprise that the mushroom stew is the most popular dish.
