DDF DO Planning Thread

Seven Mile Market - supposedly the largest kosher supermarket in the country.

Hotels:
Only 1 Close and decent hotel to Jewish area (but not quite walking distance) is this Hilton Doubletree

Otherwise, there are a number of nice hotels downtown (which is also the inner harbor area) and near BWI airport. There are no shuls in the downtown area with regular minyanim, aside from Mincha minyanim in various offices.



Restaurants in the Jewish area (in no particular order):

Dairy

Dunkin Donuts - 2 kosher locations
Here and Here

Milk & Honey Bistro - dairy homestyle cooking

Goldberg's Bagels - very good bagels and free wifi. Pikesville location is the one in the Jewish area

Mama Leah's - pizza that is a bit different, but IMHO, the best pizza in Baltimore

Tov Pizza - classic pizza shop - Mocha thinks this is a hell of a lot better than ^

Caramel's - pizza shop, also has sushi

Eden Cafe - located inside the JCC, no membership is needed. Also has pizza

Cocoaccinos - cafe with sandwiches and salads

Downtown
Van Gough Cafe - small cafe that serves sandwiches

Me Latte - small kosher cafe located in Johns Hopkins

As far as restaurants go.

Subway in Baltimore is not bad.
People looove David Chu's. Its not  bad but not sure what the obsession is about.
Accents is solid..some new burgers there.
Knish shoppe..people love the subs but the sushi is great!!
Umami...Hit or miss, depends what you get.
Mama Leahs: Unique pizza you will either love it or hate it
Goldbergs.solid breakfast
Cocochinos..good dairy lunch...not too much variety
if u want regular pizza go to tovs.

I dont know much about the shuls ;) ;) but the aguda is the closest to a minyan factory, I think they have a hotline where you can check when they daven.


I think I touched on all the restaurants

IMO- David chus used to be very good...over the last few years, things have changed. Its good, but i wouldnt call it amazing.
Accents is really pretty good. I would recommend them as the place to go for fleishigs.
I prefer mama leahs over tov pizza, but to each their own.
Goldbergs does have very good food and they are a great place for breakfast.
Subway- overrated...although much better than the one in chicago and nowhere near as good as the one in cleveland. (the one in chicago only has white bread and whole wheat bread...isnt subway supposed to be known for their bread?!? ???)

The only issue with accents is the seating...it get very cold and I dont love sitting out there in the center.
