You can hold this new Baltimore food guide in your hands

What if there was a guide to Baltimore's best restaurants, markets and specialty stores, broken down by neighborhood, that told you where the food-lovers' destinations were but didn't neglect the beloved landmarks? And what if you could put the guide in your purse — you know, like a book?

On Thursday, Chazz: A Bronx Original will host a release party for “Food Lovers’ Guide to Baltimore,” a just-published book from Globe Pequot Press written by Baltimore residents Kathy Wielech Patterson and Neal Patterson.

The book serves up side dishes on food trucks, breweries and wineries, as well as recipes, but its meat is a neighborhood-by-neighborhood breakdown of “Foodie Faves,” “Landmarks” and “Specialty Stores, Markets & Producers.”

Kathy Patterson said that the write-ups on restaurants aren’t reviews. “These are restaurants that we know people like and that we like and that have been recommended to us. And we want to share them with both locals and out-of-towners who are looking for a good place to eat,” said Patterson, known in Baltimore food circles for her food and dining blog, Minx Eats.

Patterson acknowledged that it wasn't always easy to commit a favorite to the printed page. “I’m very fickle. My tastes change,” she said. “I’m surprised I’ve been married for 13 years."

The launch party for “Food Lovers' Guide to Baltimore” is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Chazz: A Bronx Original, 1415 Aliceanna St. in Harbor East. For more information, call 410-522-5511 or go to chazzbronxoriginal.com
