Thanksgiving in Baltimore
My family and I (adults only) need to be in Baltimore for Thanksgiving and will be having dinner in a restaurant. Any recommendations for places that would include regional foods on their menu and that would also be cozy in a Thanksgiving-sort of way. Thanks very much.
You've asked a really good question, especially since I don't know which restaurants are open on Thanksgiving. So here are some suggestions that I think you might want to look into--they are all on the web for further research.
For "regional cuisine," probably the restaurant with the best reputation is Pierpoint, which wins all sorts of awards. If that's not open, some other names to look into are: Charleston, the Brass Elephant, Hamilton's, and Atlantic (more fusion-oriented).
These are all pretty pricey. If you'd like to step down a notch, I'd recommend Eichenkranz (a long-established German restaurant in Highlandtown that has the right amount of "coziness") or Mamie's in Hampden(which has all the comfort food that you'll need).
Hope this helps.
Charleston usually has a reasonably priced Prix Fixe menu, but their website hasn't been updated yet. Try calling the Milton Inn, 410-771-4366 if you want a nice cozy atmosphere. Bit of a hike out of town though. Charleston the better bet for regional fare, Miton Inn better for atmosphere. I'll keep thinking about it this week...
