Bar Louie at the Avenue in White Marsh
White Marsh, MD
Before I start my review, this place is an exclusive bar for the younger crowd that has all sorts of beers, liquors and fun drinks. The atmosphere is very modern with lots of small bar tables all around. Their specialty is drinks all kinds of drinks, great place to go after work, bring a date or just hang with your friends.
Ok, got that out of the way. Well, if having a drink at lunch time, and your hungry for a bite to eat, honestly this is not the place to have a nice meal. They specialize in finger foods. So, if your starving and looking for a twist in the traditional fare, this is the place to be. BUT for me, I'll skip this place. Why you say? Well a couple of weeks ago I went for drinks with my coworkers. I had a bee and soon developed the munchies. I ordered French fries expecting a platter of French fries. Instead I got a cup of thin fries. That cup of fries lasted less than 5 minutes.
Today a couple of us went to this place for lunch. I played it conservative and ordered the French onion soup and a turkey club. The soup was ok nothing to boast about. When I received the turkey club, it was a sandwich but cut in half and placed on top of each other. Yes I did get turkey slices oops I mean chunks of turkey, not the turkey slices from turkey breast. A slather of guacamole, apple bacon strips that were soggy and a slice of tomato. Now the sandwich was so big, I had to try to eat each layer, there was sooo much turkey pieces, couldn't eat it all.
I have to say I wasn't a happy camper, there was no flavor to my turkey sandwich and the French onion soup probably came from a can and broiled a slice of cheese on top. Different isn't the word to describe the food, it was no taste, no value not an eating establishment at all.
On a scale of 1-5 and 5 being the best, I give this place for the food only a "1"
