Outside/Open Area Dinner in Baltimore
I am looking to try something new in the Baltimore Area either Fells Point, Canton, Fed Hill or close by for dinner with my friend. Cool drinks, good - reasonably priced food, open air, and not stuffy or dark atmosphere would be great. Any ideas? Want to be able to walk around before and after dinner.
If you're up for a good mexican place, arcos (http://www.restaurantearcos.com/) is a great place to eat outside. Their backyard transports you to another place, totally not a fells point vibe. I think the pictures on their website say it all. Their food is good as well, as are their tequilas.
If you're in the Federal Hill/Locust Point area, try The Wine Market. They have outdoor seating and it's fairly private, tucked away and relatively quiet. Drink till your heart's content!
In Canton, I'd recommend Birches. It's on Montford Avenue. They also have outdoor seating and it's very casual. Food is very good, although the staff and kitchen are incredibly relaxed. If you're ready to spend a few hours hanging out, enjoying yourself, then go there.
In Canton on Boston St- The Bay Cafe. Right on the water with both indoor and outdoor seating. The outside bar area is sand covered. The food is good, I heard that their shrimp salad is pretty tasty. www.baycafeusa.com
In Canton on the Square- Mama's on the Half Shell. Seafood. Haven't eaten there but is highly reccommended on Chowhound. It's inside seating, but the walls are covered in windows that are usually open.
In Fed Hill on Key Highway- Little Havana. Cuban food. Right on the water with both indoor and outdoor seating. www.littlehavanas.com
In Fells Point- DuClaw Brewery. The food isn't too bad, the beer is good. Both indoor and outdoor seating. www.duclaw.com
