Tonight's the night. Artifact Coffee, the offshoot of Woodberry Kitchen, near Hampden starts its dinner service this evening. The Night Kitchen menu is available beginning at 5 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday for tables of two and four on a first-come basis.
A three-course menu will change weekly, as well as the price, and will be served family-style. It's BYOB.
This week's menu features: young romaine, buttermilk dressing, and radish to start, followed by roasted Rettland chicken, ramp butter noodles, roasted turnips and their greens, and bay-leaf carrots, and then apple dumpling with fresh-cream ice cream for dessert.
The cost is $29.50 a person, not including tax and gratuity.
While you're at Artifact, you can also purchase locally made goods at the restaurant's Market Wall. The offerings include house-made items like Woodberry Kitchen jams, jellies, and pickles, and goods like wallets and leather-bound books from Baltimore's Almanac Industries.
House-made bacon and sauerkraut by Woodberry's butcher will be sold when available. Chef/owner Spike Gjerde's signature hot sauce, Snake Oil, is also for sale.
Eat and shop. Sounds good to me.
