      Where are you staying? I would definitely give Peter's Inn a shot, 504 S. Ann, Fell's Point just south of Eastern Ave. Small eclectic but always something great, decent wines, nice vibe. If you're solo you can eat at the bar. They don't take reservations so if it's a weekend or Weds eve best to arrive early (6-ish) or late, 8:30-ish. I think it's one of the most unique places in bmore, check their website (www.petersinn.com) for menu as they change weekly.

        Cinghiale is a recently opened Italian restaurant with a 400 label wine list, so that might be a good place to start.

        Jack's Bistro serves creative and tastebud-blowing food in a fun setting.

          I ate @ Jack's on Sunday night and their short ribs were delish! The peppercorn and lavender icecream was also a mind blower, def recommend both dishes.

          Charleston is the best restaurant in the city. Just google it and you'll find reviews, menu,etc
          As for Italian, forget Little Italy even though it will upset some others on here. Sotto Sopra on Charles St. is good. Someone else here mentioned Cinghiale. It just opened and they probably haven't worked the kinks out yet but unless I'm mistaken, the owners of Charleston, Cindy Wolf and her husband Tony also own this place so, it has a good pedigree.

            I would like to second the recommendation for Sotto Sopra on Charles Street in the Mt. Vernon neighborhood. I went there on Sunday night. The pasta dishes are very nicely done. Everything seems to be homemade fresh pasta. The fried calamari came with a very nice wasabi flavored white dipping sauce. I had Angolotti stuffed with veal. It was very good. My companions had gnocchi, and another linguini with shrimp. Nice wine by the glass list, and prices and portions were not bad for a downtown location.
