Friday Five (Fave Quick Eats in the City)

These are our go-to places for a quick, easy and inexpensive bite to eat. Check ’em out and let us know what you think! Did we miss any of your faves?


Location: 745 E. Fort Avenue (Between Fed Hill and Locust Point)

Best For: Carry out. It gets super crowded on the weekends so carry out is your best bet. My faves are the rosemary beef and the Greek salad with chicken.

Location: 1105 S Charles St (Fed Hill)

Best For: Happy hour. Matsuri is our favorite sushi spot in Baltimore City and they have a fantastic happy hour with a variety of discounted rolls and apps. Full meal for two plus drinks usually runs us less than $40 with tip.

Location: 1702 Thames St. (Fells Point)

Best For: Bar food, lunch or dinner. Kooper’s does standard bar fare really really well. Their burgers are delicious and they have great honey mustard sauce for fry-dipping. The very tequila-heavy watermelon margarita isn’t half-bad either.

Nalley Fresh

Location: Downtown, Inner Harbor and Canton.

Best For: Work lunch. Adam had been singing the praises of Nalley Fresh for months before the location near my office opened so I was incredulous if it would live up to the hype. Oh but it did. Nalley is like the most amazing salad bar of all time – and you can have as many toppings as you want for the same price. Think edamame, wheat berry, mandarin oranges, asparagus, sweet potato and marinated mushrooms.


Location: 3601 Boston St (Canton and several locations in the county)

Best For: Casual weekend lunch. Their ploughboy soups are outrageously good and you can pair a cup with a half sandwich if you really want a treat. Their menu changes often and the ingredients always sound tantalizingly good.
