A word from Parts & Labor
Some of our seating is un-reserved, so if you can't make a reservation, please just walk on in!

Parts & Labor, from the team behind Woodberry Kitchen, located in Remington in an old automotive garage, continues the relationship with Chesapeake Bay growers focusing on pastured meats cooked in an open hearth. We pour 24 beers on tap with a focus on supporting small farm breweries in Maryland. Along Howard Street in this space we have a full retail butcher shop selling fresh cuts, sausages, cured meats, and Woodberry Pantry preserves, and staffed with a full butcher team to help make selections.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "In celebration of my boyfriend's birthday, I made reservations at Parts & Labor. We both love Woodberry Kitchen and Artifact Coffee, and were very pleased to find that this restaurant was just as spectacular! We had the pickled eggs and really loved the charred cabbage, along with many other dishes we tried! The chocolate lard cake was amazing! We will definitely be returning!"

  • "This is a new restaurant to our neighborhood and we decided to go there for our anniversary dinner. Definitely more of a special occasion place for us, but we enjoyed it. My husband and I see this place as a great business to have in our back yard!"

  • "Trendy space, good food, expensive (be prepared for a 13$ burger). The hostess is SNOOTY and not a pleasant experience when we walked in! We had reservations but they acted as though they were doing us a favor by finding us a table!"

  • "Chalk it up to my midwestern upbringing, but I like aged meats cooked just right. And, the folks at Parts & Labor appear to have a similar passion. We sampled something from all parts of the menu and found all very interesting and palate-pleasing. The fingerling potatoes were the only disappointment in the bland department. Our meal was improved by the upbeat and witty server and the community table experience encouraged cross-party chatting and sampling. Compared to other venues recently opened, you could have a satisfying meal with drinks for under $30 per person. The attention to quality ingredients, authentic vintage recipes, and well-versed wait staff makes for a fine--and fun--dining experience in Baltimore City."

  • "Great selection of good local beers, but expensive. Food, especially the vegetable dishes, were well done and portions good. Beef was excellent, but for a butcher shop I expected more variety of cuts and sizes of meat, especially beef. Pork and chicken were very limited. Friendly staff. I did not like the communal tables, since it was just me and my wife and not a larger party. My first time in a farm to table restaurant. I liked the food, but being a little more expensive I might not be able to go as frequently as I would like."

  • "Truly one of the best meals I ever had. Wonderful beers, gorgeous salad, perfect flank steak, creative hominy side dish. Friend shared her ham hock and we were in love with it. No room for dessert."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We started off with the Summer Vegetable Salad, the Beet Pickled Eggs, and the Raw Beef Sandwich (which isn't an app but oh well). Everything was fantastic and I have to say that the raw beef sandwich was really the star of the show. For dinner we got 2 of the burgers (cooked medium rare and medium), the Dirty Rice, and the Pork Belly off the variety section. Again everything was fantastic, the housemade pickles on the burger were the perfect addition and the burger was juicy. The pork belly was grilled nicely. We did have dessert and we went with the Blondie and the Chocolate cake, the blondie was huge and the perfect pairing of salty and sweet. The chocolate cake was super chocolately and dense, definitely a winner there as well."

  • "Parts & Labor is a well executed concept tucked in the on the verge neighborhood of Remington. The food was terrific and so was the service. For anyone thinking the restaurant might of been an afterthought of this now local butchery, think again."

  • "Mediocre for the price. I dont pay $120 for a B-. Well designed dishes, poor execution. It sounds like this was an anomaly... and for their sake... I hope so."

  • "Our first meal at Parts & Labor, and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and flavorful. The wait staff was friendly and very knowledgeable, giving helpful suggestions. Love the communal style center eating area, which encouraged social interaction and even sharing of food. Great selection of beers and wines to pair. Would definitely recommend it for anyone who loves grilled meat!"

  • "Exceptional appeal of atmosphere and outstanding food, even the non meat eater enjoyed the salad/vegetables. Superb drinks. Unfortunately, the service was very poor - we had a reservation at 8:15, weren't seated until almost 9 and the food was so slow in coming we did not enjoy our meal. We did not leave the restaurant until 11 pm. Even the coffee was delayed and we really needed that for the long drive home. Would have liked to know the coffee came for 4 before ordering - should be able to get a cup for one person. Drinks came quickly, but the food was very slow. Still recommend restaurant for the interesting menu, excellent food and exciting setting."

  • "Out of all on menu chopped liver was best. there were 4 people. Drinks sent back 2 times. Unable to cut Korean ribs. Flank steak was to be med. and came back almost rare. Chicken appeared boiled and blood tinge to it. Potatoes had to be cut with knife. Waiter explained how the menu was to be read. Considering we have been to Woodberry over 50 times....this was gross."

  • "Food is great. Must try Dirty Rice dish. Casual hangout place for young professionals/hipsters. Ideal for groups where most tables are shared tables. Not ideal for a 2 person date I think, but def for double date or group hangout or group business meeting"

  • "Really enjoyed it - meat based menu, so not good for vegetarians!"

  • "Meat, meat and more meat. Easy to share a number of dishes and be satisfied and tickled too."

  • "This is a good looking, vibrant place that adds new energy to B'more. The menu is interesting and the items we selected were all delicious. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The millennial generation will love this new restaurant. Interesting space – seating at the communal tables with high stools with no backs does not look very comfortable - we sat at one of the few tables along the wall. All hard surfaces, so that there is nothing to absorb the sound. This is a beef lover’s paradise!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Looks like this one hit it out of the park! Great food - tried quite a few new things and the beer selection is great too - try the 5 oz in case you want to try another one. Lots of milennials and boomers in attendance. Most folks we talked to were new to the place and plan to return."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Service here is excellent, both times I've visited I've been charmed by the waitstaff. Food is good, but some of it is downright expensive. If you're intelligent in your choices you don't need to spend an arm and a leg, but like all Spike establishments, it's a bit hit and miss when figuring out what is good value for money when you order. Drinks are tasty, same sort of fare as WK. The one real gripe I have - it's SO NOISY, and if you are placed at one of the high tables it is virtually impossible to hear your companion across from you unless he or she yells. If you can, request a table or be stuck shouting at one another. We did makes friends with our tablemates, but a little more space and ability to hear would have been welcomed."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Vegetarians and fish lovers will have a hard time. I was very happy as were others in my group. Noise made talk difficult. I personally HATE communal tables which rule here. Hot new spot so will be interesting to see how it evolves. Parking an issue."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Parts & Labor is an atypical restaurant and, as (almost) always, Spike hits it out of the park in food and concept. Although an enthusiastic carnivore, my modern, more balanced eating habits don't allow for a lot of red meat, so this was a real treat. Their encouragement of sharing (i.e., tasting different dishes) is great and the food was terrific. The only downside was the selection of featured red "draft" wines which, after sampling a few, we found too lightweight for the rich meat. This "problem" was solved with a very nice bottle of a syrah blend. Looking forward to my next visit!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Good: Food, beer and friendly service. So-so: most seating is at communal tables and seats are a bit uncomfortable for prolonged stay. Bad: Being out of items with a limited menu, slowness of food delivery."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Great food, great ambience and helpful staff. When making reservations, request a table away from the fire grill."

  • "The food was awesome. Got the ham hock, it was huge and made the best split pea soup the next day."

    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "This was a cute new place to try in a not so good neighborhood. The Smokey smell coming from the building definitely got your taste buds in the mood for the wide variety of meats on the menu which they did have. the steak was cooked to our liking and the side of beans was very good. the sticky pork was sticky but a bit dry and could have been more moist. The service was fair, but it felt like everyone knew each other and we definitely felt like outsiders right away. as the place because more crowded we felt even more like outcasts, which definitely made our meal not as enjoyable! so if your hipster i am sure this place is for you."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "A vibrant and unique destination. Vegetarians would not find a great deal from which to choose, but could enjoy salads and vegetable sides. The transformation of this formerly automotive venue is creative in the extreme."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Too loud. Service was exemplary but food was not. The steaks had a "gamey" taste. The cookies were not made with butter (as you expect cookies to be) they had an oily taste. The creamed ice cream (sans the basil) was very good. Vegetable servings are large but meat servings are small to moderate. Seating is cramped and mostly stools and communal tables. We waited 20 minutes to be seated as there were no tables available. Not a place for those over 50."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Great new place for S Gerde. We were seated close to the wood fired open kitchen and it was warm. No clue how cooks survive the heat (owner was on the line). Loved the steak and took a chance on the blood sausage (a little loose for my taste, but it is supposed to be spread on toast). Great salad and wok cooked peas were the best"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I had high expectations for P & L. We had the spicy pimento cheese snack app @ the bar, which was great. The (fall of the bone) ribs were so tough and charred, I could barely saw them off the bone with my knife. The last rib was blackened crumble. The grilled cabbage was good, but was doused with too much fish pepper which made it way too spicy. I did not care for the cured pork & beans; they were way too sweet. The bread was okay. Waiter was nice but fairly inattentive...did not clean the table after dinner or offer us new napkins before dessert after a very messy meal. (and the napkins are tiny) The chocolate cake for dessert was very good; though it was not presented to us as an option; we just happened to notice it on another table."

  • "Who would have thought, one of the best salads I've ever had would have been at a butcher shop restaurant. (The meat was outstanding too!)"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Excellent food. Some unusual choices to get the meat lovers happy but maybe you could squeeze in a vegetarian dish for the lone person in the party. It was very noisy even in the booth. Not good for people with hearing challenges."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "It is loud and my folks can't hear well in loud places. I requested a booth, which is more protected. The staff accomodated with such ease and the service was perfect."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We came here on the recommendation of a friend, and were not disapointed. Friendly service & amazing food in a casual atmosphere. Pig ears, Korean Short Ribs, Blood Sausage, Kale Salad, Chocolate Cake...all delicious!!! Cannot wait to go back!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Parts & Labor makes no bones about what its specialty is: meat. With some unusual cuts and house-made sausages, the menu is mostly about local ingredients (except for the wine). The beer menu is large, given the local emphasis. The servers were very knowledgeable and helpful, although a little slow in terms of taking orders and following up with the check. The communal dining was fun, if a little awkward when the waiter assumed that the fellow sitting across from me (a total stranger) and I were together. The cement floors plus a high ceiling means that sound echoes, so if you want to hear your company, I'd recommend asking for a booth. The pork sandwich was excellent. Would go back to try more on the menu."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "This place is an interesting loft looking restaurant in a mixed restaurant and neighborhood environment like many places in Baltimore. We went to this one after seeing Parts and Labor win the Best Burger in Toronto contest on one of the cooking review shows. We know the server from a previous dining experience and as always, he was quick with a recommendation and overview of the menu. Will try to catch a show the next time as this establishment is next to a theater."

  • "Every plate was beautifully prepared. Not much offerings for a vegetarian, but they should know that in advance and be prepared. Excellent service."
