Local Flavor Live Podcast: Exploring Baltimore's Lost Restaurants

Suzanne Loudermilk, co-author of 'Lost Restaurants of Baltimore,' joins us to discuss her new book.

On this week's episode, former Baltimore magazine food and travel editor Suzanne Loudermilk joins us to discuss her new book titled Lost Restaurants of Baltimorewhich was inspired by a story that she wrote for Baltimore in 2014. The book chronicles more than 100 years of the city’s restaurant history and delves into the stories of 35 beloved spots that have come and gone. (Think everything from Martick’s Restaurant Francais and Peerce's Plantation to Spike & Charlie's and Louie's Bookstore Cafe.)

Loudermilk co-wrote the book with fellow food writer Kit Waskom Pollard, and the two are donating a portion of the royalties to Maryland ProStart—a high school program that trains aspiring chefs and restaurateurs.
