Three...strikes out?

As everyone has noticed by now, our beloved neighborhood restaurant Three... is with us no more. I thought it would be a good opportunity to dry our tears and try something new. So! Without further ado, a list of my honest-to-goodness favorite spots within a one-mile radius of my front door:

1. Annabelle Lee Tavern - The whole Poe thing is just totally rad. Don't let the exterior fool you - everything inside is straight up lovely, from the food to the service.

2. Peter's Inn - Get there early or be prepared to wait. But so worth it, with a weekly changing menu of seasonal specialties.

3. Dipasquales - My mouth waters just saying the name. It's like the most amazing deli, corner grocer, and gourmet caterer rolled in to one adorable house. Go there. Immediately.

4. Mamma's on the Half Shell - Great for lunch or dinner, drinks with friends, or brunch with the fam. Large portions will never leave you hungry. Make sure you try the Orange Crush in summer!

5. Rosina Gourmet - Awesome lunch spot, and I LOVED their recent appearance on Groupon! For you harbor east workers, new spot coming soon in the Bagby Building! (If this was with a 1+ mile radius, I would be including Bagby Pizza FOR SURE!)

6. Bonaparte Breads- Fantastic espresso drinks and out of this world sweet treats, best enjoyed overlooking the water and Thames Street. Their breads are also fantastic...I especially recommend the whole wheat boule

7. Hudson Street Stackhouse - Gotta admit, I haven't actually eaten here, but love the bar vibe for a low-key catch up evening with friends. Neat Cannon Co. paraphernalia on the walls, so check it out before you start drinking!

8. Tutti Gusti - Oh, the pizza! This side of town, you'll find the best pizza here hands down (try the soup, too!)

9. Yellow Dog Tavern - slick bar downstairs, classy dining room upstairs. All yum, no stuffiness. Also love their brunch on weekends.

10. Patterson Perk - Grab a coffee and take a stroll around the Park! Or snuggle up on the couch with a borrowed book from their little library. This place exudes "neighborhood friendly" of my favorite friends and I have started meeting for knitting and coffee once a month here!

So those are some of my personal fav's around the 21224 and 21231. What about you guys? Where are you going to start hanging out to fill our lil' local void?

love k
