Apples and oranges.

But you still get more for your buck regardless and that's a simple fact.

No one who can't afford to stay in a $400 a night hotel is going to stay there. No one is being forced to stay there. Every city has luxury hotels for those who can afford it. Baltimore should be no different.

I swear sometimes it feels like some of the people on this forum are stuck in the 1950's when it comes to certain things and issues. 

Old people love complaining.

The writer was trying to be trendy. He stayed at the new Kevin Plank hotel. Maybe he should have stayed at the Ivy. Only would have been around $500.

Trendy. LOL. It's a travel magazine and Plank is the city's most familiar face. He wouldn't have been doing his job if he didn't check the place out.

If you're whittling the discussion down to cost/pounds of food, why stop at Cracker Barrel? You can get more bang for your buck at a $6 AYCE buffet. 

I have nothing against CB, but it's a huge difference between that and Woodberry Kitchen, or any other popular non-chain restaurant in any US city. And if those kinds of places aren't your thing, then it's not your thing. But it's plenty of other people's thing.

Here's a question. Someone is visiting Baltimore from out of town and wants your recommendation on where to eat. Are you sending them to Cracker Barrel?

Of course not I wouldn't send them to Cracker Barrel since I'm sure unless they are from mars they would be well aware of it. 

Actually I only brought that up because of the smug comment above that brought up Cracker Barrel as an elitist put down.

i should ignore that type of elitist bs that flows here but I took the bait.

I get why you said that. Are there Cracker Barrels in Baltimore? 

I've never been to one, then again, I still have not eaten at Woodberry either.

Not sure if there is one in the city but we have one in Harford county off of 95.

Been to Woodberry for brunch once. It was great but not everyone can afford a twenty dollar plus breakfast.

I found something out today. The Sagamore Pendry (Kevin Plank hotel) has a suite that costs $5000 a night. 

And...The Four Seasons at Harbor East has a Presidential Suite that costs $30,000 per night. Incredible. 

However, the Pendry has an infinity pool on top of the pier that anyone can use for $50 per person per day at any time regardless of whether you're staying there.

I've read the reviews and it does seem to be a bit pricey.

It's nice place and the food is good. But not worth being a snob over if someone thinks it's pricey.

If one is pathetic enough to insult people that choose to spend their money wisely instead of spending it in trendy restaurants, then they have their own issues.

Travel on any major highway and you will see signs for Cracker Barrel. Many more down south.

If you ever watch any shows on Food Network, Woodberry is a foodie restaurant. Everything is natural.

I've seen it on there, looked a bit too "hipster/foodie" for my taste.

I personally think WK is a tad overrated, myself.

Bar Clavel, OTOH, is amazing. And won't break the bank either.

Yes, I've seen those. I asked about Baltimore because I've never seen one in Baltimore.

Went to the Pendry bar last night. Wow. What a great job they did converting that place into a hotel.
