Cindy Wolf, perhaps one of the most recognizable names in Baltimore’s culinary world, is featured, along with several prominent chefs, in a gorgeous publication called DC CHEFS. She is the only Baltimorean.
You can’t buy the magazine or subscribe to it. It is shared among chefs and other lucky recipients. There’s a website, but it hasn’t been updated from 2007-08.
But back to Chef, as she likes to be called. Where does she go when she’s not toiling away at Charleston? Here are her recommendations in DC CHEFS:
Best burger—Kooper’s (the mag spelled it Coopers) Tavern
French fries—Petit Louis, Pazo (nice plug, Cindy)
Best hot dogs—Weis Deli
Best deli/sandwich shop—Weis Deli (wow, a little love for the regional store)
Best oysters/seafood bar—Faidley, Lexington Market
Best comfort food—Andy Nelson’s BBQ
Best ice cream—Maggie Moo’s
Best breakfast/brunch—Jimmy’s Diner for breakfast, Bonaparte for brunch
Best coffee shop—Bonaparte
Best business lunch—Tio Pepe
Romantic restaurant—The Prime Rib
Best bakery—Bonaparte or Patisserie Poupon
Best farmers’ market—Under I-83
Favorite wine shop—(What a surprise) Bin 604 Wine Sellers, which she owns with hubby Tony Foreman
Supermaket—Eddie’s of Roland Park
I also thought it was nice that another featured chef, Bryan Voltaggio of Volt in Frederick, gave a shout out to Thrasher’s Fries in Ocean City.
