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

Any suggestion on hotels in pikesville md?

I noticed a Howard Johnson right on Reistertown Road.  Probably not all that nice but definitely in the middle of the kosher food area.

Been to Umami yet?

Nope will try and convince the wife to go today or tomorrow.

That is a known prostitute hotel. It's not for "tourists"

The aquarium was very cool and definitely worth checking out but too expensive for my liking ($81 for two adults and a 3 year old).  The rest of the inner harbor is nice to walk around and seems to have a lot to offer, though with our two little kids we won't be doing much of it.

I'll try to update in a few days or when I get back.
You should have gone to Port Discovery instead. Aquarium is ridiculous expensive

Hilton is the only one unless you want something drug/prostitute infested.
Also it's in "pikesville" but not really walking distance from the Jewish community. So you might as well just find a nicer hotel a little farther out.

Looks like there's a Hyatt Place not too far.

Great Pad Thai, Chinese, sushi etc.
Cheaper during lunch hours.

Yeah the Hyatt place is about 15-20 mins from the jewish community (besides Ner Israel).  Hilton is about 10 mins closer.  Downtown is not too far (under 15 mins without traffic).  And towson sheraton is about 15 mins.  All of these are in completely different directions from each other.

I'd assume you're referring to driving distance?
Prob also assume that @MnM1130 is referring to walking distance (Shabbos)?
MnM1130, please clarify.

There are no decent hotels or anything close to that in walking distance (less than a 40 minute walk) to the Jewish communities. Unless as stated before you stay in the Hilton which is ok probally a 20 minute walk to Ner Israel.
