Baltimore: need recommendation for two nights near the Harbor

I'm coming to a conference at the Intercontinental and am looking for some two good dinner stops for Sunday and Monday night. I'm thinking Italian and seafood? but am open to suggestions. Thanks for any suggestions, most of my Baltimore experience has been drinking in Fells Point 15 years ago, so I need a bit of an update!

    1. The immediate surroundings aren't that hot food-wise, but nearby are all sorts of options. North on N. Charles is B&O Brasserie in the Hotel Monaco, which has great food (including excellent seafood) and cocktails.

      Further up is the Brewer's Art, which also has terrific food plus they make their own line of excellent beers.

      Near that is the Owl Bar, which is a solid classic-Baltimore restaurant and bar but in an astonishingly beautiful room. I like to take visitors there just because it's so cool.

      1. Maybe it's too late to chime in, but I'd recommend Sotto Sopra for Italian.

        1. I would choose La Scala for Italian and Tio Pepe for seafood. Both old school traditional.
