Baldoria was seemingly built for people who are diametrically opposed to formal seating arrangements and delicate, overly-designed food - everything on the menu is made to be shared and many of the tables are communal. Whether you go with your best friend or a group of people you hope to pawn off on some unsuspecting birthday party, it’ll be a good time.
Baldoria is permanently closed.
