Duck Duck Goose Baltimore
The gist: A historical Fells Point building that houses a brasserie-style restaurant, chic bar, a romantic back courtyard, and plenty of sidewalk tables.
The food: On the heels of his success with Bethesda restaurants, Chef Asish Alfred opened this Baltimore concept in 2018. The menu is specific and Parisian with various cheeses, patés, vegetables complementing classic mains like duck confit and a côte de boeuf for two. For something a bit less fancy, brunch is a great time to visit for shrimp & grits and avocado toast. Of note are thoughtful zero-proof cocktails, a nod to Alfred’s personal journey with sobriety.
The cost: Charcuterie is $6-21, shareable sides are $13-16, mains are $18-38.
