After catching the latest A24 movie at The Charles, walk next door to discuss the trajectory of Greta Gerwig’s career over a meal at Foraged. The whole description of this “hyper-seasonal eatery,” inspired by the chef’s foraging expeditions in the woods, sounds like a Portlandia sketch, but this place always delivers. Their menu has dishes like the “last of the season tomatoes,” wild Maryland catfish, and grilled beef short rib on a carrot and celery root puree that’s seasoned and cooked perfectly. The Maryland-style “crab cakes” made with lion’s mane mushrooms could fool even a local, and Drew’s sourdough focaccia is served warm with a seasonally appropriate butter. The snug space in Station North is perfect for small groups but often fills up fast, so definitely make a reservation.
