Renaissance Harborplace

jan Sep 12, 2006 07:34 PM

I'm coming to Baltimore in mid October. We are having a tradeshow and looking for a few restaurants for a dinner out night with a lot of people from all over the country. I keep reading about how there's nowhere to eat near there that's very good. For now we have reservations in about 4 different restaurants in Little Italy. I was looking into Fells point....Any thoughts on where to take a diverse group without a lot of travel involved? And good food, of course!!

        I'd say 4 nights in a row in Little Italy is a little much. Many would say that one night in Little Italy is too much...but I'd consider at least looking for 3 other options.

        How big is the group?

          Fells Point:


          Henningers Tavern

          Inner Harbor East

          Charleston (very pricey

          Butchers Hill

            How about James Joyce Pub?

              I'm a bit confused, are your looking for restaurants for 4 different nights? or 4 different restaurants for one night(due to a large number of people)in one general area?

                There's no way a large party would be able to go to Salt. They don't take reservations, do they? I walked by there the other night w/ a friend. It was too crowded for the two of us to even go in for a drink. I'd suggest Pazo for a large group, but be sure to make reservations. Fell's Point doesn't have much in the way of places to take a large group- it's either pubs or small restaurants. Pazo is the one exception.

                Also, if I were you I'd take the group to a restaurant in Mt Vernon (do a search on chowhound for good recommendations) instead of one (or two!) of those nights in little italy.

                  Sorry I didn't explain better! We have a night out with about 100 people divided between 4 restaurants in little Italy....Dalesio's, La Scala, and DaMimmo with the fourth still up for grabs!
