Downtown Baltimore Monday, August 21st

Hi y'all,

I'll be at an event at the Convention Center in Baltimore and I'm looking for a restaurant for Monday night. It'll be me and another female co-worker. She's in from Boston and I live in Norfolk. Nothing too fancy, we'll be in business casual. Something that's fun and indicative of the city. We both like a few drinks, so a good bar is a must. I'd say $100 to $125 before tax and tip for the both of us. I don't know too much about her preferences, but I think she's pretty mainstream with an appreciation for great food.

Something that's walkable or a quick cab ride is fine too.

Thanks so much in advance!!

  1. I would recommend Pazo restaurant, about a mile east of the Inner Harbor (take a cab). Very large well-decorated space inside, fun bar (including a lounge filled with comfortable chairs and couches), interesting small plates and larger entrees. Sort of pan-Mediterranean cuisine. Check their website:

    1. To be clear, is it Monday the 20th or Tuesday the 21st? It's an important question, because a lot of places are closed on Monday.

            So, you noticed I'm blonde? Monday, the 20th!!

      2. I'd also recommend Pazo, but for another fun place in your price point that is unique to Baltimore with a good bar scene and excellent food, you should take a quick cab ride up Charles Street to the Brewer's Art - definitely open on Mondays. Have some drinks in the front area before dinner. It never disappoints me....

        1. I live in Baltimore and I highly recommend The Wine Market, it has awesome interesting food and it's a great crowd. If you like wine, it has a great selection. Check it out on line. Call a head it gets busy.

          1. Check out Hull Street Blues..real neighborhood atmosphere with good food
            On Hull Street of Fort Ave ..maybe a 10 minute cab ride
