How It All Started
For over a decade, owner Elise has worked in the music industry. Six of those years were spent with rapper, artist, and producer, Mac Miller as his Tour Manager. During that time, she had a chance to see the world and work with some of the best artists in the country. As a tour manager, she learned the value of creating community and a sense of home around "a good meal and a stiff drink" wherever you are.
In 2016, Elise received a call from the production manager at the Lyric Theater in Baltimore, asking for assistance in elevating the backstage experience for their artist clients. Along with partner Saeed, they launched Ashling Market and Catering, built on their 'dream' and 'vision'. They quickly developed a reputation for superior hospitality, thoughtful attention to detail, and food that was diverse and familiar, sophisticated, and accessible.
Today the kitchen continues to serve top entertainment artists in various venues throughout the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. We are particularly excited to give you the star treatment today.
Welcome to the Ashling Kitchen & Bar family!
