I will be visiting Baltimore from New York to attend a performance at the Baltimore Opera. I have two questions for the board:
1) Is there an interesting place to eat which will be open late on a Friday evening (as in post-performance?) - It doesn't have to be haute cuisine - a great dinner or pub will do!
2) On Saturday evening I hope to have a great dining experience with price not really an object? Where should I go for a wonderful dinner in Baltimore?
Let me join the consensus: after opera, Dizzy Issie's for great burgers and other pub food, Brewer's Art for their house made ales and upscale pub grub (don't leave without trying the rosemary garlic fries). Saturday has to be Charleston, the only place in Baltimore in the same league regarding service and food as Manhattan's finest. Also worth considering: Bicycle, Chameleon Cafe. www.thechameleoncafe.com
1) Tapas Teatro isn't too far from the Lyric Opera House (if that's where your performance is), and I believe they serve their full menu pretty late. It's a solid, enjoyable tapas joint. http://www.tapasteatro.net/index.htm
2) If someone offered to take me to dinner in Baltimore "with price not really an object," I'd pick Charleston in a heartbeat. Probably my favorite restaurant in town. http://www.charlestonrestaurant.com/
