Restaurants in Baltimore

The Chesapeake Bay is home to some of the finest seafood in the United States, so expect to find plenty of fresh seafood, especially crabs, on the menu at Baltimore restaurants. But as an international city, you’ll have no trouble finding restaurants that specialize in Chinese, French, African and South American cuisine, too. Locals know that the best restaurants in Baltimore lie outside of the tourist areas, so have fun exploring neighborhoods off the beaten path to find that rare culinary gem.

Some of the best restaurants in Baltimore include Woodberry Kitchen, which specializes in locally sourced produce and seafood, including an excellent rendition of rockfish, Maryland’s state fish; Faidley’s, a seafood joint famous for all things crab – crab cakes, in-claw meat and lump crab meat; Coburn’s Tavern and Grill, a British-style pub serving up juicy burgers, steak and seafood dishes, as well as the Captain’s Toast, an appetizer consisting of shrimp and crab sautéed with tomatoes, cream and Old Bay seasoning; and Chaps, which specializes in Baltimore’s take on barbeque called “pit beef,” a thinly sliced top round grilled over charcoal for a heavenly smoky flavor – locals take it shaved and served on a Kaiser roll and smothered in a blend of horseradish and mayonnaise known as Tiger Sauce.
