First Trip to Baltimore, what to see and do? What restaurant is good fine dining to celebrate our 35th anniversary?

Husband and I are planning our first visit to Baltimore this weekend, to celebrate our 35th anniv. We want to go to a nice romantic restaurant that has great food on Monday night, where should we go?? We are staying in Fells point and will be there for 3 days. What sightseeing should we do during the day and where to eat for lunch and dinner, especially for seafood... Thanks

  1. We just celebrated our 30th at Charlestons and it was wonderful

    1. Yes, you 100% should celebrate your anniversary at Charleston. It is the best our city has to offer. As for a great seafood dinner, check out the Black Olive, which is in Fell's Point. You will not be dissapointed!

        Third for Charleston. Here's a review I wrote of it back in March:

        I went to Kali's Court a few months ago and wasn't overly impressed. It wasn't bad, but there was nothing particularly interesting about it either.

        Duda's is a charming little corner bar with a good crabcake.

          Charleston is wonderful. Heard good things about saomeplace, I think called Woodberry Kitchen?

      2. make sure you check to see if restaurants are open. many close on Mondays
        other choices other than Charleston and Black Olive include Chingale and Tio Pepe

          I also recommend Cinghiale for an anniversary. I celebrated mine at a table in the corner of the Osteria, with windows on both sides. Very romantic.

        2. Yes Charlestons is open Mondays that is one of the reasons why we went there Was at Black Olive a few months ago and loved it. I would skip Kali's
