The owners of Herb & Soul restaurant in Parkville are opening a second location in Hamilton.
Herb & Soul Express will open in early December in the former Cosmos carryout space located at 5429 Harford Road. The new location will be a "streamlined" version of the original, according to an Herb & Soul announcement.
Owned by Brandon Taylor, David Thomas and Yuri Chernov, Herb & Soul opened its Parkville location in the summer of 2012. This spring, Herb & Soul joined the Baltimore Farmers' Market, where it introduced market-goers to its original, "fusion" take on Southern cuisine.
• The Nickel Taphouse in Mount Washington is starting up a weekend brunch. The a la carte brunch menu will be served on Saturdays and Sundays starting Nov. 15. The menu includes the usual frittatas, Benedicts and omelets. But it has mussels and oysters, too, along with snack-y things like deviled eggs, Scotch eggs and Buffalo Brussels sprouts. We have our eye on the red-flannel roast beef hash. We're going to let someone else try the moon pie French toast with marshmallow, chocolate sauce and whipped cream, though.
More than anything, we love that they're offering cheese blintzes.
• Bluegrass Tavern in South Baltimore has started a Whiskey Wednesdays promotion, featuring selected flights of bourbons, ryes and whiskey for $10 or $15.
