As I wandered South down President St. from Power Plant Live!, I found what I heard is the newer hotspot in Baltimore: Harbor East. As you can see, this area of the city oozes modern-style. The place is mostly made up of restaurants, but these range in cuisine and price range. And, if you feel so inclined, you can swing by and pick up that new Audi that you forgot to grab when you last ran errands at the corner Audi dealership.
A cool little place for me was the James Joyce Irish Pub. I fully admit this is my English Instructor side nerding out to an unbearable degree, but I thought it was cool that the city threw a shout out to ol’ Jimmy J. I stopped in here for an obligatory Irish Whisky on the rocks to warm my frost-bitten soul.
My final destination was to my dinner spot for the evening, Chazz: A Bronx Original. This is a coal-oven, Italian food restaurant co-founded by actor Chazz Palminteri. I’ll have to say, I thought this place had all the makings of an “interesting” experience, but I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. More on my dinner thoughts later.
