Restaurants for College Graduation celebration in Baltmore next May!

Yes, it seems nuts to think about this nuts but I've been advised to check this out now. Looking for some restaurants to enjoy a nice lunch and dinner celebration for my daughter's graduation. Graduation will be at the First Mariner Arena and we are staying nearby. Thinking something in Fells Point could be fun. No idea how many people are coming but it could be at least 10 for lunch after graduation or dinner the night before. Thanks!

  1. If I had known better, I would have requested my graduation dinner be at Charleston.

      If your group will be a festive group with toasts and the such, Charleston is a little quiet for that type of affair IMO. My choices would be more in line with maybe Tio Pepe where the Sangria can flow and you could arrange for a semi-private small room. Another very special dinner location would be the Prime Rib.....they have large tables and have hosted a multitude of these type of celebrations. In Fells Point, you may want to look at Mezze for a tapas fun vibe or maybe an outdoor table at Kali's Court. A good lunch choice near the Arena would be the new B & O Bistro on Charles St. or maybe a more relaxed Mama's on the Half Shell in Canton. All above other than B & O will require a short cab ride but that is true for anywhere truly desirable over near the Arena area. jck

        Thanks for the recommendations. I will certainly check them out!

          That would be B&O Brasserie, not Bistro.
