More on Duda's Tavern.

On cold, still nights in Fells Point, the smell of hamburger rolls baking is strongest. Add to that the savory aroma of steaks grilling down on Bond Street and you have good reason to wander to the western edge of the pub district and grab a table at Duda's. Thursday night is steak night, and tables are often hard to come by for the 12-ounce New York strip, baked potato, and salad special ($9.99), so you might have to wait. No problem. Quaff a Guinness or one of the cheap bottle specials. Your patience will be rewarded with a well-seasoned steak of your preferred bloodiness and temperature. We've never sent one back for all the times we've visited. But the cut sometimes arrives under par, a little fatty and fitting the low price tag. But usually it's a tender, well-marbled cut, an unbelievable bargain that may take its place in your "steaks I have known" scrapbook.
