On one level it seems a little silly to be reviewing a place that's been recommended time and time again on these boards. On the other it bears reiterating -- this may be the best restaurant in Baltimore in terms of doing what they set out to do.
Courtney and I went there yesterday after seeing the revival movie at the Charles. We showed up about 2:30, and between the time and the snow the line wasn't bad at all.
We got a reuben, a corned beef on rye with mustard, a hot dog with bologna and a sauerkraut, a bag of Utz salt and vinegar potato chips and two Dr. Brown's sodas.
Simply put, this was a fantastic meal. the corned beef on both sandwiches was fatty, meaty and perfect. The hot dog was amazing.
Given the snow and the lack of food in our kitchen we decided to grab some corned beef, pastrami, dill pickles and deli mustard for dinner at home. Again, perfect and delicious.
It's not fancy, it's not a white tablecloth joint, but what they do they do beautifully. I'd put Attman's up against any NYC deli. If I was on death row I'd choose an Attman's pastrami sandwich as my last meal. It's that good.
