Business Lunch - BWI

Meeting important client for lunch. We are both flying to BWI for this meeting and would like a good place to eat and talk.

  1. Are you looking to eat at the airport? Or taking a cab somewhere? There isn't much at the airport.

    1. In and around BWI is a wasteland. You're only 15 mins from downtown Baltimore.

        I'll recommend a couple of places in Locust Point, just south of downtown Baltimore off I-95 (and about 15 minutes from BWI): The Wine Market and Pazza Luna. Both open for lunch, with decent menus.

      2. Unless you get a rental car, you're limited to dining at airport hotels with shuttles. Getting a cab back from any other restaurant will be difficult.

          If you factor in the time spent waiting for whichever hotel shuttle (round-trip), you could hop in a cab and be in Locust Point in less than 15 minutes. You'd just need to be able to call a cab from whichever restaurant to take you back to BWI.

            Getting a cab back from a restaurant is as easy as asking the restaurant to call you a cab or calling one yourself.....pretty simple.

              Cabs in Baltimore are not so easy or dependable, especially if it rains and especially outside of downtown. If money is not a factor, car service is an idea.

                I beg to differ...I use cabs every single night on the weekends and have had very few problems. I take cabs from Catonsville --> Downtown and back all of the time. I live in the city and use Raven cabs most of the time....I even have some drivers cell phone numbers to call.

                Raining?? Cabs run in the rain too. Hilarious!!
