The Baltimore scene

An Loi (Columbia)
Cafe de Paris (Columbia)
Charleston (some day when I've saved enough $ for the Chef's tasting menu)
Elkridge Furnace Inn
Jessy Wong's (Columbia)
Les Folies Brasserie
Mr. Bill's Terrace
Paper Moon Diner
Pho Dat Than
I'd never been to Baltimore before last month, but got a chance to eat at Aldo's and Bertha's in Fells Point. Establishments are at opposite ends of the sophistication spectrum, but food at both was delicious. Really splurged and had Tournedos Rossini at Aldo's. Decadent and superb! At Bertha's--what else: mussels.
Save yourself the trip to Frederick and skip Isabella's, not bad but not worth the drive..
How about Samo's(gyros) or Ikaros(calamari fried!!) in Greektown? or Zorba' or
It doesn't get great reviews on this board but I have always enjoy the paella
at Bertha's in Fells Point....
How About the Prime Rib.? Pricey but very dependable....
How about Tio Pepe? Another old reliable..
There's also Hull Street Blues for a casual laid back dinner wiith no frills.
Then there's Andy Nelsons in Cockeysville if you enjoy "Q"
A pizza craving can be satisfied at Matthews, Squires and /or Pizza Johns
Faidleys for a creab cake or some raw oysters..
Chuckies Fried Chicken in Hollins Market for that craving..
The Black Olive has always met my expectations....some disagree
Weiss Deli for a great Cloak and Dagger(Lombard Street)
