Fifth anniversary week at Hamilton Tavern, with the 75,000th Crosstown Burger

Hamilton Tavern is celebrating its fifth anniversary this week. The neighborly Harford Road bar was an immediate hit, not least because of its Crosstown Burger, a seriously good thing made from Roseda Beef and topped with iceberg lettuce (yes) and horseradish cheddar with the buy-in options of caramelized bacon and a fried egg, the last of which was, at the time, a novelty for Baltimore burgers.

Hamilton Tavern expects to serve its 75,000th burger on Monday night, according to co-owner Tom Creegan, who said that the lucky person who orders it will get a "little something" to commemorate the milestone. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the kitchen is serving some frequently requested past menu items, and the bar is featuring an all-Baltimore draft list, including brews from Union Craft Brewing, The Brewer's Art, Oliver Breweries and Stillwater Artisanal Ales.

    In Howard County, excellent ethnic restaurants pop up in so many unlikely spots that finding a good meal in a nondescript strip mall is no longer surprising.

    The best thing about Baltimore's recent explosion as a great food city is not the increase of excellent high-end restaurants. We love the fancy places, but to our minds, the biggest benefit is in the way the city's casual spots have upped their game.
