are there any non touristy places convenient to Camden Yards?
My boyfriend's parents are in town this weekend and we are going to the Orioles game on Saturday night. I have been to Baltimore a million times (DC Hound) but when I go out to eat its usually not Inner Harbor area. Are there any decent places we can go before the game in that area or should we just do Boogs?? Thanks!
You are right to avoid the IH as it is a food wasteland but there are some highlights just a tad off the beaten track.
For higher end, B&O Brasserie is located in the Hotel Monaco not far from the ballpark. Good eclectic American (dareisay "DC-style") cuisine. Also Sullivan's steakhouse is very close, which is a chain steakhouse in the grain of Morton's et al but a little more fun and less stuffy.
Down in Federal Hill you could check out Abbey Burger Bistro or Ryleigh's Oysters that are maybe 1/2 mile walk to the ballpark (or even shorter cabs).
However, you might just want to eat in the ballpark. Attman's (jewish style deli) just opened up an outpost under the warehouse and it is just as good as the original on Corned Beef Row. It has easily the best food in the ballpark now, and a pretty good deal. (About $10 for an overstuffed sandwich that would normally cost about $7 outside the park.)
