What You'll Get
While summer grilling may seem like a good time, it frequently ends with a kiddie pool filled with barbecue sauce and half-eaten mesquite-rubbed Frisbees. Today's deal leaves the grilling to the professionals: for $15, you get $30 worth of upscale bar fare and drinks at The Red Star Bar & Grill in Fells Point.
The Red Star Bar & Grill boasts a refined menu of bar fare for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. Dive into an order of mussels and garlic fries ($12), and enjoy the butter-topped bivalve cooked in a white wine and basil broth. Spice-seekers can explore the jalapeno mac and cheese ($10), loaded with bacon and jalapenos and topped with panko bread crumbs. Red Star's enticing entree selection boasts eight savory salads (full sizes start at $7), gourmet personal pizzas (starting at $10), and artfully constructed hand-helds, such as the blackened tuna wrap ($13), which includes sushi-grade ahi tuna, fresh veggies, and Creole remoulade sauce, or the bison burger ($12), topped with sautéed onions, pepper jack cheese, and a roasted garlic aioli. Ensure dinner has as sweet a conclusion as Othello with the daily-changing bread pudding ($5) or seasonal cheesecake ($5).
Red Star boasts a chic yet cozy atmosphere, complete with exposed brick walls, lofted ceilings, warm-wood accents, and an elongated bar, making it an ideal place to enjoy one of more than 35 beers (bottles start at $3, draughts start at $5) or a glass of wine. Creative cocktails, like the dragonberry basil mojito ($8), which features the fresh herb muddled with sugar, are sure to keep you at the bar until the late hours, while the eatery's brunch special—featuring bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas ($8)—will lure you out of a children's ball pit.
