Gjerde has shown his love for oysters from the Chesapeake Bay’s estuaries since Woodberry’s earliest days, but in the last seven years the selections have doubled. We slurped a few saline beauties fresh from Virginia waters and spooned up others simmered in an appropriately simple cream- and milk-based oyster stew. From their shells we scooped out several others that had been roasted and dressed with port cream and smoked ham, or with the house hot sauce, called Snake Oil, made from a local chile variety known as fish peppers. The peppers were once widely used by Maryland cooks but then nearly forgotten. Gjerde convinced some growers to plant heirloom varieties. Their impressive heat waded through Woodberry’s “crab pot”—a double entendre for the crock holding hot dip that also refers to the name of the traps used to catch crabs. The dip’s foundation was quark, similar to fromage blanc, and it was doused with sherry, a flavoring for dairy and crab dishes that stretches back to the country’s founding.

Woodberry’s success has brought Gjerde, who grew up in Baltimore, a national platform, including a couple of James Beard award nominations. He’s no upstart, though. He and his brother ran several restaurants—including Spike and Charlie’s, Atlantic, and jr. (all defunct)—through the 1990s before he started Woodberry with his wife, Amy, and another partner no longer involved. The space’s cultivated warmth (craggy brick walls, mottled cement floors, chopped wood stacked on shelves overlooking the lower part of the two-story room) and the staff’s efficiency speak to Gjerde’s years of experience in the business. And the fact that the more he thrives, the greater he glories in local tradition? That’s just breadcrumbs on the imperial.

foodieheaven (Baltimore)·Dined 7 days agoThere is not much to say after you have enjoyed every morsel of a multicourse eating frenzy. It was all, with some things being a shade better than others, a lovefest of comestibles, beautifully thought out, prepared with style and savor, served with caring hands and eaten by our party withoug leaving as much as a crumb. Asparagus in broth with ricotta dumplings, pork chop with noodles infused with fried greens, chicken with dumplings roasted to the deepest and richest perfection I can recall, homemade multigrain bread that rivaled fine cake in texture, and desserts (a peach crumble and a pecan linzer) that floated off the plates and into inquiring mouths which were immediately silenced in reverence. The trout missed the target, but then the “put-up” martinis with orange bitters were simply stunning. Recommendation? Stay healthy enough to get yourself to Woodberry Kitchen and I think the rest will take care of itself.

KReck (New York Area)·Dined on April 21, 2017The seasonal, daily menu is adventurous, thoughtful, and delicious. The locally sourced ingredients are allowed to sing for themselves in well-curated, expertly prepared dishes. Really enjoyed the cocktail menu, and the inventive drinks the bartenders concoct without the use of citrus (because it's not local!) The service staff is knowledgeable and makes you feel like you're right at home. As a New Yorker who has traveled and eaten around the globe, few places rarely live up to the hype. Woodberry Kitchen does — in fact it was so good, we came back the next day and it was just as excellent!Tags: Good for Birthdays, Good for a Date, Fit for Foodies, Open Kitchen, Hot SpotWas this review useful to you?Yes·No·Reportfood5ambience5service5value4
