Bourdain Baltimore Bound!


(photo from Tony's blog)

So Anthony has already come and gone in Baltimore, but he wrote about it in one of his recent blog posts entitled "Rust Never Sleeps". I don't quite know how to feel about this title and what he's trying to say about Baltimore with it. Is it a jab at our skeeziness or an endearing nod to the working class of Charm City? eh. I think he is pretentious. I prefer Andrew Zimmern; but I can't think of anything worth eating for his show in Baltimore.

So supposedly Tony went to Mo's in Fell's I think? Right off of President? I'm pretty sure that's what is over there. I have never been there but read that it's sort of an old school establishment specializing in seafood, he dines with none other than "Snoop" from the Wire. While I like the association of the Wire with Baltimore, I think there is much more to our intimate town...there seems to be limited focus when it comes to outsiders; either crabcakes or something associated with poverty and drugs. Sad face :(

I will be watching the show though, always interested in Baltimore "in the media".

PS- Bourdian will be in DC next Monday...ugh.

Mo's Seafood isn't "old-school" Baltimore and it doesn't serve Maryland crabmeat. I don't even think it serves Blue Crab. The high prices at that dump are for inferior China and Thai crab. Blech!

Baltimore is a stop on his tour of the Rust Belt.
