The Food Market
Former food store serving American fare

I've been for both dinner and brunch and the food has been fantastic for both. For dinner we tried the buffalo pickles, bringing, and the scallops. The bronzino was a little too salty, but everything else was great. For brunch we tried the market iced coffee, poinsettia, French toast dippers, chicken and biscuits, and the short rib Benedict's. Everything at brunch was fantastic and the extremely affordable! The poinsettia was made in a pint glass and was definitely not lacking alcohol. The French toast dippers came with a maple cream cheese dip that was great. The short rib Benedict had a great glaze of the short rib, but I felt like you had to break the components of the down to be able to eat all of the components in one bite. The chicken and waffles were the best that I've ever had and the cheesy potato casserole with it was stunning. My only complaint is that the restaurant itself gets too loud.

Had Girls night out for dinner and it was excellent. I ordered beef short ribs with mashed potatoes. And for an appetizer I ordered the big ole mozzarella sticks. Yummy! My Girlfriend's ordered the crab cake platter and the lil crab pot pie. Oh and my friends said the cream of crab soup was delicious too. Kudos to the Food Market, I will definitely be back! And the free valet parking was a huge PLUS on that windy Baltimore night! 😍😎👌🏽🙌🏽

We enjoyed a family night out to the Food Market. The food was delicious. The popcorn was my daughter's favorite! Our server was attentive. The valet is very convenient and they were very quick, especially considering it was raining.
