Guy Fieri visits Sip & Bite in Fell’s Point


Baltimore’s legendary “Sip & Bite” restaurant was profiled on the Food Network.

Grating goofball gourmet Guy Fieri (you know, the guy with the gruff throat-cancer voice trying way too hard to be cool with his SoCal Porn Star Look – dyed-blond hair, tats, earrings, Oakley wrap-around shades – and his shirt worn out to cover his fat belly, as is the current Hipster Vogue) visited the legendary Sip & Bite restaurant in Fells Point in April of 2012 for an episode of his Food Network television show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

The Sip & Bite is a family business that has been serving homemade diner and Greek delicacy food in town since 1948. Original owner Antonios Vasilades’s grandson Tony Vasilades now runs the 24-hour diner (lauded fo its “Best Breakfast … Best Late-Night Dining … Best Crab Cakes … Best Cheap Eats” – AOL City Guide, 2005) with his wife Sofia.

Guy really dug the couple’s Old Bay-seasoned crabcakes with their “big, fat chunks” of lump crab.

“You get two of them?,” he exclaimed. “Who can eat that much food?!” (We don’t think he’d have a problem with it!)

He also dug Sofia’s Famous Spanikopita, made from a spinach pie recipe handed down by Sofia’s grandmother and featuring healthy portions of flavorful goat and ricotta cheese .

    I was watching Diners, Drive-In & Dives and saw the episode when he visited Sip n Bite in Baltimore….They showcased a crab cake , and it looked absolutely delicious….I’ve searched everywhere for that particular recipe, and I cant find it anywhere….would it be possible to send it to me, or a link to where the recipe is posted ?

    Thanks !

  2. I’ve never had them there but the original recipe on Old Bay cans is the best according to my wife and my stomach:

    Guy made an absolute fool of himself with his oh-so-obvious infatuation with Sofia. He could not contain himself. Her husband Tony was not amused. It was embarrassing to watch.
