#29 Bluegrass Tavern
#29 Bluegrass Tavern
South Baltimore

Since taking over the kitchen at this gracious south-side tavern, Timothy Dyson has incorporated elements of French country cuisine into the menu without changing its Southern accent.

The essential dishes are the smoked fried chicken with country gravy and the low country fish stew with mussels, whitefish and shrimp, all simmering in a tomato-fennel broth. And if you’re hungry for calf’s brains, this is where you’ll find it.
