Sweet Retreat


Sweet Caroline’s—the latest farm-to-table, American-with-a-twist bistro and tavern—came to Baltimore by way of Ocean City. Ashley Fowler and husband John “Jay” Ferrari, former owners of the Bamboo Restaurant and Tiki Bar on the boardwalk, moved to Locust Point to take over the sweet little spot previously known as Pazza Luna. While the vibe is family friendly and relaxed, on the right night, you can catch a full fish presentation that rivals some of the finest restaurants in town. Creative casual fare includes a to-die-for crab guacamole, pineapple mango pork and a few seasonal delights such as flavorful chili and a salad topped with pumpkin brittle—plus burgers and paninis for lunch and a Sunday brunch menu. Libations range from the signature Black Jack Martini, made with Jack Daniel’s and blackberry puree, and to Love the Game pinot noir, created by Dana Hoiles, wife of former O’s catcher Chris Hoiles. During the baseball season, don’t be surprised to run into a few professional sluggers in the house. (“Manny is obsessed with our sliders,” says Fowler.)
