Contemporary, Sun Best Restaurants 2016

After establishing himself as a serious chef at City Cafe, Chad Gauss struck out on his own in 2012 at The Food Market in Hampden. The place was an immediate success. (In fact, Gauss is planning to open a spinoff in Quarry Lake at Greenspring by the end of the year.) His original location — a stark, modern space with an open kitchen — is still going strong with seasonal American dishes with a twist. Small plates include offerings like beets with pears and mint, and crab and corn doughnuts. Entrees feature plates like a pistachio-encrusted rack of lamb and “crabatouille” in a spicy broth. But we’ll always be thankful for Gauss’ popular Baltimore club sandwich, a whopper with a crab cake, shrimp salad, bacon, lettuce and tomato stacked on potato bread.
