Lost Restaurants of Baltimore

June 26, 2022 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Join us in-person at the Almshouse! 

Suzanne Loudermilk & Kit Waskom Pollard

Haussner’s artwork. Coffey salad at the Pimlico Hotel. Finger bowls at Hutzler’s Colonial Tea Room. The bell outside the door at Martick’s Restaurant Francais. Details like these made Baltimore’s dining scene so unforgettable. Lost Restaurants of Baltimore explores the stories behind shuttered restaurants that Baltimoreans once loved and remembers the meals, the crowds, the owners and the spaces that made these places hot spots. Suzanne Loudermilk and Kit Pollard share behind-the-scenes tales of what made them tick, why they closed their doors, and how they helped make Baltimore a culinary destination.
