Herb & Soul a culinary triple threat
Herb and Soul is a restaurant, a caterer and a farmers’ market vendor – you have three ways to dine on Chef David Thomas’s nutrition-rich edible goodies. Herb and Soul started out as a carry-out in the back of a convenience store in Baltimore County and in that same location the three partners have taken over the entire space. Chef David Thomas, Brandon Taylor and Yuri Chernov have created a local food-ways oriented restaurant offering casual table settings and alcoves with cozy seating groupings, ideal for the weekend musical entertainment.
The “soul” in the Herb and Soul not only reflects chef’s southern heritage, it reflects his passion for locally sourced, seasonally-ready food products on the plate. The new late spring, early summer menu being introduced in the coming weeks has a crab cake starter. Now Herb & Soul’s crab cake starter is “True” Maryland crab meat served with black-eyed pea and lima bean succotash with Sriracha cream sauce. One can drown one’s self in this dish - Check out the slideshow and full story HERE.
