Baltimore - best spot for dinner these days?

An old friend is coming in to town and I live in DC...any suggestions on where to go in Baltimore for a tasty dinner and drinks? I was thinking Jack's but I guess they're not open on Tuesdays. Maybe the Brewer's Art, but I've been there and want to try something new. Thanks!

    Woodberry Kitchen at Clipper Mill near Hampden stands out as consistently excellent service of outstanding food. Not particularly convenient to DC though. Closer to the Harbor I was very impressed by Meli as a good value.

      Petit Louis Bistro will knock your socks off if you are thinking Baltimore. In a very quaint part of Roland Park with a superb staff. Order the eggplant napoleon (fried eggplant over fresh tomatoes, pesto and goat cheese) and at least one of you get a baked chicken. Also, whaetver creamy soup they have, try it.

        Henningers Tavern in Fells Point is always consistantly good:

          Peter's Inn in Fells Point has great food and wine. Just had a terrific meal there last week.

            Corks in Federal Hill is really good and they have a 1/2 price steak and cabernet special on Tuesdays which is wonderful.

                did that this past tuesday, the rice and beans were kind of bland, the meat was tasty but everything was cold including the tortillas. It looked like the rice and beans had been pre-plated judging by how congealed the beans were on the plate. Not sure I would go back for it.

                Peter's Inn & Henningers are always good options.

                Maybe the Annabel Lee Tavern in canton? It's been awhile since I've visited, but I enjoyed my trip. Didn't seem nearly as lively as a place like Brewer's Art or a Woodberry Kitchen though.
