Ida B. Wells was an activist, a journalist, and a founder of the NAACP. After her death, she was even the muse for a special 25-cent postage stamp. When Ida B's Table opened seven weeks ago in Baltimore, she also became the namesake for a new eatery, dedicated to commemorating her contributions and crafting cuisine with local roots, just like Ida.
Chef David uses mostly local and organic ingredients from purveyors that include Roseda Beef in Monkton, Nibble Green Farm in Hagerstown, and even Bee Green Apiaries right in Baltimore. Come by for the weekend brunch if you want to indulge in a board loaded with pastries and breads, a gooey skillet of monkey bread with house-made caramel sauce, or a breakfast "cobbler" stuffed with brisket. For dinner, Chef David creates unique eats like local catfish in a sweet curry sauce and short ribs smothered with bourbon gravy. Save some room for the brown sugar pie, which showcases brown sugar custard in an oat cookie crust.
