Dinner on Sat night in Balt - casual elegance

My husband and I in our mid 40s and will be in Baltimore on Saturday night. We never have time away from the kids and are looking for a casual (a step up from jeans) yet elegant place for dinner. Steaks, chicken, seafood, mexican. We were thinking of walking through Fells Point or the Canton area. We do enjoy wine. I've seen Junior's mentioned here but I wanted a menu without pizza! Thanks.....

      1. I'm a big fan of Bicycle in Federal Hill. Cool atmosphere, nice wine list and most importantly, great food. The tuna tartare is not to be missed! Save room for their coffee creme brulee and a pot of the press coffee.
        As far as dress code goes, I've been in jeans and a fancy top and also in a dress. Anything along those lines would be fine.

        If you do end up at Juniors, the fried olives are a must and they also have a fine creme brulee.

        1. Peter's Inn in Fells Point...or maybe Salt Tavern in Butcher's Hill. You could wear jeans to either, but atmosphere and food are wonderful! You could head over to Meli (new restaurant opened by Kali's Restaurant Group) for a nightcap! Jack's Bistro in Canton is also delicious if you were heading to that neck of the woods. Enjoy your date night!

          1. In Fells Point, I'd say Timothy Dean's. Great food; lots of energy. If you want to go further than that, perhaps Jack's Bistro in Canton?
