Helena and the Giant Beet
...such juicy sweetness coming from these early winter roots. 
Like everyone we’re shifting and adjusting yet again, with new restrictions coming from the city. The end of outdoor dining seems a step too far and sudden to us, esp as so many restaurants have taken a risk to invest in safer outdoor seating. But ultimately we want to ensure the health and safety of everyone in our community. If you work at a restaurant, or were recently laid off, or own one, we feel you. Thanks to @bmorerestaurantrelief we are able to once again offer the discount code INDUSTRY50 for 50% off to *restaurant workers* for any online store purchase. Sending ❤️ to all. @dylansoystercellar @goldenwestcafe @foraged.eatery @lecomptoirduvin @bar.clavel @faden.sonnen @thelandofkush @heritagesmokehouse @harmonybakery @jbgbutchery @motzi.bread @asankabaltimore @bramblebakes @merakitchencollective @almacocinalatina  @ortobaltimore
It’s James’ last night with us, he’s been working the line since August, and he’s off to join the health department’s COVID-19 Contact Tracing effort. We send you off with our deepest gratitude and luck 🙏
This week calls for comfort food. Enter kimchi mac & cheese with a Pan di Zucchero chicory salad dressed in preserved lemon, evo, @diasporaco aranya peppercorns and our fermented garlicky peas. 

This winter we are launching a ‘Food as Medicine’ menu. There is so much healing in this dish! First... pleasure medicine! Food gives us vital energy and nutrients but we cook it, season it and share it with others for pleasure too. It is rich and creamy (gf too but you wouldn’t know it) with satisfying bites of tart, umami @hexferments miso kimchi. The slight bitterness of the chicories and acidity of preserved lemon provide a refreshing contrast with each bite. Fermented peas and cabbage build your gut microbiome, essential to all aspects of health. 

On the supper menu starting tonight, AND online packaged in portions for two! Look for more new dishes (and the return of winter favorites) over the next couple of weeks as we settle in to winter rhythms. And thanks as always for your support. We are still here because of all of you!

Our old friend from SF, Jason Jägel, made this bright and juicy drawing for us, just in time for Cider Crush, this Saturday Oct 24t from 10-2.

For Cider Crush this Saturday, we are super grateful to have been able buy some “Black Twigs” from Maryland’s only organic apple grower @willowoakscider 
Originiating in Tennessee, and dating back to 1830, Black Twigs are juicy and also have some tasty tannins, making them ideal for cider...
Mark your calendars! Our yearly Cider Crush and open air market will happen on Saturday, October 24th, 10-2pm.
Our chef Helena, the Squash Charmer. Thanks to Julie @new.wood.collective

Escarole is a delicious member of the chicory family. It looks like lettuce but is more sturdy, a bit more bitter, and loves a hardwood charcoal grill. We will be serving it as part of the BGG (Beans Greens and Grains) plate kicking off our fall menu. Be on the lookout for apple galettes, honeynut squash soup and other autumn aliments as the golden light of fall sets in. #escarole #chicory #grilledgreens #livefirecooking #fallmenu #eatlocalbmore #bmorefoodie #beansandgreens #beansgreensgrains
You might’ve noticed the update to our facade, a cold rolled steel cap, that will gradually rust to an earthy orange hue. An elemental transformation through  a naturally occurring process... not unlike fermentation. Thanks to @kustomsteel for ‘press brake’ lessons. #metalwork #steellife #transformation #saltandsteel #facadelift

Late summer’s bounty from the rooftop garden. 🌿 join the whole family (of herbs) for brunch, glistening under the morning rays. This weekend we celebrate the labor of all of the many hands it takes to bring food to the table... farmers, delivery people, prep cooks, dishwashers, and supportive friends and family. ❤️ #laborday #herbgarden #rooftopgarden #baltimorebrunch #knowyourfarmer #eatlocalbaltimore #madeinbaltimore
So excited to be able to offer you all this sage infused ghee made in collaboration with @asankabaltimore and @moonvalleyfarm. We gleaned the sage from a fallow @moonvalleyfarm field, and @gristandgravy turned our kitchen into a sage scented ghee wonderland. Perfect timing for sweet corn season! Slather it on your corn on the cob or sauté cut kernels with fresh cowpeas and beans for a killer succotash. Available in our online shop now. Link in profile. #ghee #nebamsirme #sagebutter #knowyourfarmer #eatlocalbaltimore #asanka

Brunch today! 10-2pm
