I had two potato dishes yesterday that I can’t stop thinking about—and can’t wait to eat again. If you have any other suggestions, let me know.
Some friends from Delaware came to visit, and we headed to the Harbor area, happy to finally have a sunny day. First stop was Regi’s in Federal Hill for brunch.
We enjoyed crab-and-spinach omelets, but what we couldn’t get enough of were A.J.’s tater tots. The miniature potato croquettes are covered in melted Brie and applewood bacon bits and are truly addictive. We wouldn’t let the waitress take the dish until we had eaten every one. We washed them down with peach Bellinis to celebrate summer.
Later in the afternoon, after hours of meandering the Harbor (okay, this is hokey, but we did the Ride the Ducks tour. Don’t snicker. It’s fun), we ended up at the bar at Sullivan’s Steak House, where happy hour was in full swing.
If you want a deal, this is the place to go. Martinis are $5 as is a glass of red or white wine. And bar snacks are half price. Swingin’ at Sully’s, as it’s called, is offered on Sundays and Thursdays.
We ordered the Knockout, the restaurant’s signature drink. Let’s just say that orange vodka is a wonderful thing. We were hungry, so we decided to share blue-cheese chips. This is a decadent dish, but munching on hot, fresh-baked potato chips with gooey blue cheese plus crumbled blue is a great way to end an afternoon with friends.
