Tyson's Tavern - Baltimore

TT has been under new management for a while. Finally made it back and I wanted to give a shout-out.

New Owner is a veteran of the B'more restaurant scene (Hampton's, Charthouse, etc.). Owning this place is kind of a dream-come-true for him, so he's putting a lot of his own energy into making it work. Fo example, he makes his own stocks and gravies, hand cuts his fries, roasts his own beef, etc.. I can highly recommend the cream of crab soup - which uses both chicken and fish stock and a lot of crab meat. For dinner, we had the hot roast beef sandwich and a scallop special - both of which were very good.

Wine list is interesting for a neighborhood place, and he has a good selection of beer, including one ("Original Flag Porter") which is brewed from yeast salvaged from a 1825 shipwreck.

Finally, there's a lot of history to this place, and the new owner loves to talk about it.

If you've had a hard day and need somewhere to grab a bite and relax without breaking the bank, this place is as good as any.
