The Yard Bar & Grille has been making some fresh new changes

Sous Chef Adam Clary
The Yard Bar & Grille inside the Marriott Inner Harbor Camden Yards has been making some changesfrom a new executive chef and the new menu. Executive Chef Bill Downes has joined the Baltimore Marriott Inner Harbor and has a passion for incorporating farm-fresh produce into his menus. To support his farm-fresh mission, Chef Downes has begun growing a garden of vegetables and herbs on the hotel rooftop with the vision of building a greenhouse to support year-round growth of the very freshest of ingredients.

I was invited in to try out some the new menu items and specials that are offered different nights. Executive Chef Bill Downes had off but Sous Chef Adam Clary and the staff took great care of us.
We started with three selections that can found on Tuesday Baltimore LOCALS “Tapas Tuesday”:
  • Pretzel Crostini with lump crab mustard – loved the combination flavor of the mustard seed and crab
  • Braised Beef Short Rib with smoked cheddar BBQ mash – tender and moist
  • Charm City Crab Pot Pie with lump crab, garden vegetable and a flaky crust (also found or regular menu) – was served a tasting size and will for sure be getting the full size of this twist on comfort food

We then moved on to sample some burgers (slider version) that can be found on Monday 1/2 Price “Burger Night”:
  • Mediterranean Burger with Angus beef, olive tapenade, in house roasted red peppers, feta cheese and lettuce – this twist of a burger is popping with flavor from the olive tapenade
  • Wanda’s Ultimate Vegetable Burger with lettuce, onion and lemon basil pesto – a great vegetarian option that is flavorful
  • California Burger with Angus beef, avocado, house made red pepper pesto and smoked gouda – fresh and full of deep flavor

Lastly we tried some items from Wednesday “East meets West”
  • Edamame Pot Sticker with sweet soy dipping sauce – nice crispness to this dumpling
  • Tempura Shrimp with a sweet chili Thai dipping sauce – the sauce gives this traditional dish a nice kick
  • Chicken Teriyaki Bun with orange ginger sauce – a perfectly steamed bun
