Friday, January 20th, 2017 by Cara Hullings

What: Joe Benny’s Focacceria

Where: 313 S High St

When: Hours

On a mission to bring a piece of Sicily back to Baltimore, Joseph Gardella created Joe Benny’s. A fresh take on the Italian food we all love, this charming restaurant is serving up some amazing focaccia paninis and a variety of Sicilian pizzas. The bread used for all the food at Joe Benny’s is a one of a kind goodness that will you you straight to Italy and have you craving more as soon as you’re done.

As if this authentic food wasn’t enough, the atmosphere of Joe Benny’s Focacceria is authentic as well. This small, cute area is a place “about having a great time and enjoy life one bite (and sip) at a time” as Gardella promotes. With such a personality, the restaurant reminds you of a place in Sicily where locals would go. Between the awesome Italian food and the well-captured Italian atmosphere Joe Benny’s is really the highlight of Little Italy.

Want a real taste of Baltimore? Then check out the Dizz, a great pub called “Baltimore in a bar”! Wall covered in cute, quirky decorations and lights to show off all their Baltimore pride, The Dizz is about more than just eating: it’s about the experience. Come out and site down to catch a Ravens or Orioles game which will be playing on one of the many televisions in the restaurant like the true pub style. While you’re there,grab some of that classic pub and diner food food that The Dizz does so well. Whether you’re in the mood for some fish and chips, a hamburger, wings, or a wrap this pub has it all and much more. They even serve up some great breakfast food! My personal favorite is their chicken cheesesteak, which always has the perfect ratio of cheese to meat. So take my order advice or go find your own favorite, but make sure you try The Dizz, or else you’re failing Baltimore!
