Best Restaurant with a Mission

Plates Café and Catering

333 N. Charles St., (410) 962-8560,

Posted 9/16/2009

Plates Café and Catering is the most recent incarnation of Bridget and Galen Sampson's Chefs in the Making project that originated at their Dogwood Restaurant. Plates' mission is human, as well as culinary: train folks in transition from addiction, incarceration, or homelessness in the hospitality industry from front of the house restaurant work to culinary arts. While their motto, "transforming lives one plate at a time," might be as sweet as their brownies and their carrot cakes, this is a serious business. We wish everyone involved a helping of success.
