Marco Pierre White's "White Heat"

Last great meal you had?
I just recently had the freshest Uni [sea urchin] I've ever had in [the area] at Jessie Wong's in Hunt Valley. The last great full meal I've had was classic "sponge diving" Greek food at Tarpon Springs in Tampa, Fla. Their dolmades left me speechless.

Favorite place to get a drink in Baltimore?
Anywhere on the water. I like the artisanal cocktails at Wit & Wisdom, but also just love the classic dive bars of Baltimore with friends after a long day cooking.

Favorite and most loathed fashion statements?
I love the new colored skinny jeans that are in style, but I still really don't find high-wasted cut offs to be attractive. Maybe the '80s trend isn't for me.

Favorite quote/saying?
Listening to the wild teenagers of Hampden never lets me down. There are so many sayings I'm not sure where the hell to start.

Favorite thing about Baltimore?
Everything about the water. The views can be unbelievable and being able to go hang out on the water is something I love to do on my days off.
