Cardinal Tavern

Recently, I was fortunate enough to be invited to Cardinal Tavern’s Friends, Family, and Instagram night to get a taste of new items on their bar + food menus! Cardinal Tavern, a staple corner bar in Baltimore’s neighborhood of Canton, has been on my radar for a while. My friends that live near by rave about the ‘funky comfort’ food + drink selections, so I’d been dying to check it out when I got the invite for this tasting night from LikeTheTeaEATS. Admittedly, this was my first “foodie” event in Baltimore; although I post a lot of pictures of my restaurant explorations, this a first for me to attend this type of event (and naturally I was fan-girling a little because I got to meet some of the Baltimore food bloggers with big social media presences.)

And without further ado, here was the menu! Looks good, right?

The night was a huge success, and it was awesome to hear all of the stories + inspiration behind each dish from Chef Steven himself (@dirtroadchef on Instagram!) Be sure to follow along with him for his latest creations, including exotic twists on traditional southern dishes, and check out CardinalTav.com for their newest menu items (including variations of the dishes shown in this post!)

I’ve already got my return trip to Cardinal Tavern planned (drinks before next month’s First Thursday in Canton!) The only question left is when will you stop in??

 

As always, thanks for reading! Until next time, keep it stylish!

Xoxo,

Taylor
