Cuisine | Seafood

Seafood is the star at Jake and Ben Lefenfeld’s splashy new restaurant in South Baltimore, but as expertly as the kitchen prepares contemporary dishes like Spanish mackerel on pumpernickel or rainbow trout with sautéed spinach, the place doesn’t take itself too seriously. The menu is digestibly divided into small plates (“smalls”), larger ones (“biggies”), and “bait,” (cute snacks such as sardines with olive tapenade and lemon aioli are served in sardine tins). The oyster stew was packed with shellfish and bacon to create the best version we’ve tried in years. The breading on the shrimp stuffed into the po’ boy only added to the sandwich’s bursting flavor—it would make a New Orleanian proud.
