Live in Baltimore? Visiting soon? Be sure to check out Birroteca, a modern take on delicious Italian cuisine. Not only is the food fantastic, but the atmosphere is spot-on for a laid-back meal in its quaint Hampden locale. I’ll be heading back soon to dabble in some brussel sprouts and get my fix of the olive oil and sea salt ice cream—sound weird? You won’t be disappointed, I promise.

Cheers!

Food Type: Candied Bacon

Bacon recipe

Today’s Food Type is Father’s Day appropriate! Need a last minute gift? You know Dad will love something made by his favorite child—and believe me, you WILL be the favorite after he tastes this. The best part? It’s so simple! Creating the typography for this one took longer than making the actual recipe; in case you can’t tell, that is love…design love with a side of bacon.

A special shoutout to my friend Allison for documenting each delicious step! We certainly enjoyed the final product.

Cheers!

Food Type: Little Havana

Food Type

Today’s Food Type comes from what I like to think is a well-kept Baltimore secret. Pop in for some tacos, a mojito (their specialty) or simply to enjoy the warm breezes on the patio. I also happen to love the restored warehouse in which the cabana resides, representing the urban Baltimore vibe alongside the beachy Latin flair. Enjoy!

Cheers,
J.

Food Type: Ryleigh’s Oyster

Wine glass

This whole “starting your own design business” deal is, as I expected, tough work. You begin to realize that the business side is just as important as the design side and finding that balance between corporate and creative can be taxing. So lately I’ve been scrubbing my brain for ways to keep my skills sharp in the spare moments that I do happen to find.


Ryleigh's Infographic

Behold, my first attempt at a typographic restaurant review. I love food, I love type, so why the heck not? This particular infographic reflects some of my all-time fave things about one of Fed Hill’s finest, Ryleigh’s Oyster. But don’t just take my word(s) for it, stop by and check them out next time you find yourself around Charm City! You’ll be sure to see me there in the upcoming months when their open-air atmosphere blows back into style in the arms of those warm summer breezes.

Cheers,
J.
