Suggestions for Baltimore girls night out

Chella Jan 21, 2007 05:29 PM

I'm looking to take two girlfriends out for a fabulous dinner in a restaurant with great atmosphere. Not too picky about the kind of food (although one of them doesn't eat sushi or red meat) - but we definitely want somewhere upscale, fun and hip.

Extremely expensive places like Charleston are out, as are pubs and taverns. Pazo is along the lines of what I'm looking for, but I've been there several times and would like to try something new. I'm considering Bicycle, True, and Zodiac. Any thoughts on those, or alternate suggestions?

    Try Salt. It is a bar/restaurant and is a fun and realtively affordable place for a night out with friends. Pretty trendy but not as loud or large as Pazo. They have drink specials so you can either sit at a table or at the bar.

      Wine Market on Fort Ave might be a good site

          Mezze in Fells Point

            I, too, was going to suggest Mezze. It has a good vibe and great food. The room upstairs immediately to the right of the stairs has a huge hooka in it; the rest of the upstairs decor is hip and fresh (if a little squished). We did a non-bachelorette party dinner there and had a great time, with tonds of great eats and being able to sample lots of tasty dishes. I think Mezze's food is better than Pazo's and would much rather go to Mezze.

            Salt would be less of a sharing plates vibe. I expected more of the food, given what I had heard.

              True is a great restauarnt, but I wouldn't consider it a "Girls Night Out" thing unless there was something serious to talk about.

              Nasu Blanca is your place.

                I second Nasu Blanca and Wine Market. I haven't been to Bicycle since the new owners took over, but I hear it's still the same, and if that's true it's a great option too.
