Baltimore’s restaurant scene is nothing short of diverse. Every neighborhood offers a wide array of dining experiences and cuisine; and the newest addition to Canton’s repertoire is Cask & Grain, a local, sustainable restaurant emphasizing Farm to Table cuisine in rustically chic digs.

Now, I always need an excuse to get out of the house and have a little fun on a Wednesday night, and Cask & Grain gave me, as well as some other lady creatives, an opportunity to do just that by hosting a Girls’ Night Out! *cue Miley Cyrus’ “GNO”*

Meeting new faces, seeing old ones, catching up over oysters & bubbles, I was in heaven. An ideal end to a rough Hump Day at work. Sound like something you’re into? Then we should go on Wednesday friend dates to Cask & Grain b/c I’m all about slurping oysters and sipping bubbly with my fellow boss babes. And we hit up their Wednesday night special, a dozen oysters + a bottle of cava for $30!

After telling some epic knock-knock jokes, our group of ladies (and Dave) got to try items off of Cask & Grain’s Spring/Summer dinner + cocktail menus. Spoiler alert: if you’re into mezcal, you’re gonna want to try the cocktail Lawyers, Guns, & Money. And listen to the song it’s named after while you drink it. 

Dinner started off with the Squash & Arugula Salad (topped with apples, candied walnuts, and a mustard vinaigrette) – and after finishing it in ~3min flat, I would highly recommend it to anyone checking out C&G. While most of the ladies ordered the Pork Collar for the main course, I was the odd wo-man out as I opted for the Rarish Yellowfin Tuna topped with a roasted beet ‘tartare’.

Let me tell you, it was drool-worthy. I like tuna, but I wasn’t a huge fan…until this dish. Same situation with beets; I wasn’t a huge fan…until this dish. The tartare definitely had that earthy, beet taste but with a sweet twist. I’ve been itching to get back to eat this light, yet filling, dish ever since I cleaned my plate 2 Wednesdays ago.

Finally, we sampled some of the desserts off the C&G menu. As if it couldn’t get better. And as a lady with a sweet tooth, my favorite was definitely the Bittersweet Chocolate Tart. Other options included: Baked Apple topped with ice cream, carrot cake, and flan!

 

What I love about Cask & Grain:

They source ingredients regionally, serving dishes containing vegetables, meats, fish from the area  – all while supporting local farmers, purveyors, and watermen.
You all know it makes my heart and stomach happy to consume food that is sourced from our community!
