Baltimore Crabcake Is One of The Best

Monday afternoon and  I had a four o'clock showing on one of my favorite listings at 2700 E. Northern Parkway an area in Baltimore known as Hamilton 21214

 MLS #BA 8243516 

 

2700 E Northern Parkway

When I took the listing at 2700 E Northern Parkway, the owners raved about a local restaurant.

At the end of today's showing, I called my sellers to give feedback and asked the name and location of Pappas.

Perfect timing to go for an early dinner. TLH was my chauffeur and his reward for waiting, was dinner at a new restaurant...not new to Baltimore but new to us.

The restaurant named Pappas  was within minutes of  2700 E Northern Parkway and we were able to drive to 1725 Taylor Ave in Parkville. We were greeted warmly by everyone. The menu had lots of choices and Monday was special pasta night. Our adorable waitress Jennifer was so helpful. Being our first visit, she recommended the crabcakes. What a great choice, large succulent and loaded with back-fin lumps. The crab soup also was delicious along with roasted sweet potatoes. Sorry no photo...I was hungry.

We met a delightful foursome at the next table, one of the diners was from Utah, and they were raving about the food and their desserts..saying it was the best tiramisu ever.

Happy diners

Before you knew it I was photographing these 4 diners and got invited into the kitchen by the gracious manager, Jason Windle, and of course gave them my card and told them about the near by listing.

 So it's cold and snow covered in Baltimore and some may think it is a chore to go show a property in the evening. Not me...I love showing my listings  and trying new places.

You are just amazing Margaret! And so is the house on E. Northern Parkway, the crabcakes and it sounds like, the restaurant Pappas, too. When my parents visit the next time, I'll be sure to take them there. They have yet to try Maryland crabcakes!

I think it is a fabulous idea Margaret, just hope it's not too far for Cheryl and Martha to attend? Are you hosting the Spring meet-up?

Well we Utah people know our Tiramasu, haha.  I would be going for an extra helping of crab cakes and crab soup myself.

Margaret It was a pleasure meeting you at Pappas. My husband, our two cousins and I enjoyed our dinner. Our crab cakes were full of big chunks of meat without a lot of filler. We had been there before and plan to go again. I'm sure our cousins will want to go again.
