Porters Pub & Grille Restaurant Review: This renovated old Federal Hill row house, long a neighborhood gathering place and better-than-average sports bar, upped the ante by adding creative contemporary dishes to the mix. The gastropub features a small-plates list that includes such items as grilled Haloumi cheese and sushi-grade tuna with seaweed salad; sandwiches range from a meatloaf melt to Italian-style mussels. Entrées on the upscale American menu have eclectic touches as well, with a classic crab cake platter sharing space with pecan-crusted tuna served with wasabi mashed potatoes and wilted spinach. Pair any of these with a Guinness stout and you’ll want for little more. And never fear, sports fans, you can still watch football and soccer here.
