After getting caught in the rain, Damien and I stumbled upon The Keg. As I sat looking for 800 numbers to cancel my lost credit cards, all I really wanted was a nice dinner. I shifted my Google focus to finding out where I could get a well made steak. The Keg is said to be busiest on Sundays, and it open at 4pm. The reviews all talk about how great the food is, but they don't do the vibe of the place justice. One review said that it's tough to get a table, but perhaps we went on a good night. We were greeted and asked if we wanted to sit in the dining room (formal) the bar (casual) or the lounge (cozy). We picked the lounge which had low lighting and couches for seating. The place was lively and buzzing with conversation but not too loud. The plates are decently priced, and fairly cheap after converting into Canadian currency. If you're in Toronto and have no real direction, the Keg is a sure place.
XS is sooooooooooo good. 1307 N. Charles St., Baltimore MD is home to 4 floors of fabulousness. The inside structure of the place is awesome featuring exposed brick walls and winding staircases. After the BSA Fashion Show, we invited our selves to XS because they serve breakfast and Asian food all day. I started breakfast with pork shumai (fried dumplings with wasabi sauce in them. Spicy but amazing) and shimp gyoza (regular, perfect dumplings). Unfortunatley, we were too hungry to take pics of the appetizers :( Then, we had breakfast like champions :)
XS is a great place for any kind of date at any time of day. The food is of good quality and decent pricing. The drinks are also superb, from what I recall. The waitstaff is super friendly, which is always a bonus. XS is the type of place you can come dressed up to (for a date or birthday party) or you can just drop in for a casual breakfast/lunch (to make awkward faces in pictures with your friends, like I do). It's also a great place for breakfast because... some people don't like breakfast food. There are burgers and stuff on the menu for those who want to eat whatever they want (and the menu is available online). If ever you're in Baltimore and want a place to try out, this is a great spot.
Open until 12a Sunday - Thursday. Open until 2am Friday & Saturday :)
