Please Help I Need Restaurant Reqs For The Baltimore Area
I agree with Vidute with regards to the Prime Rib. Their signature dish-prime rib--is huge and perfectly prepared. The restaurant has one of the best veal chops of any I've ever tried. The Imperial Crab is also a winner. And, if you choose to dine there, you have to order the Greenberg potato skins.
You guys may want to venture over to Fells Point. Lots of pubs, music, some shops and restaurants. Most of the places post their menus outside of the restaurant. I would suggest Mezze. A tapas-type place. Fun for sharing and grazing. Good Sangria.
Tabrizi's near Key Highway offers Mediterranean cuisine. A beautiful atmosphere--located on the water. It's nice to sit outside and watch the boaters and ducks. They come right up to the restaurant's deck/patio. My husband was naughty the last time we dined there as he kept tossing bread pieces to the ducks, which I am sure is a "no no."
Avoid Little Italy. There isn't anything special about the food.
You may want to venture over to Federal Hill. Very close to the stadiums. Lots of restaurants, which I am sure other Chowhounders will recommend.
Welcome to our fair city and hope you have a blast. FoiGras

I generally agree about Little Italy, though I had pasta at La Tavola the other day, and was impressed. I'm not sure it's tourist worthy for a short trip, but it was pretty solid.
I second Bluegrass. My favorite steak/seafood joints are probably Ruth's Chris, Fogo de Chao, and Oceanaire, but those are all chains that you can have anywhere.
I am going to attempt to make this less broad.
My 2 buddies and I are going on a baseball stadium tour up and down the east coast, we start and end our trip in Baltimore.
We are looking for steak, seafood of other meat restaurants.
We are coming from LA and Orange County CA, so we are used to expensive food. Our budget is around $100/person.
Hi, and welcome to Bawlmer, Hon!
For a good, reliable, old-fashioned Baltimore meat-eater's (with good seafood, too) restaurant, I recommend the Prime Rib on Calvert St. http://www.theprimerib.com/bal/index.html\
For a more contemporary carnivor's menu, I'd suggest Bluegrass Tavern. http://www.bluegrasstavern.com/
There are also good national chains such as Flemming's, Capital Grille, Ruth's Chis, etc.
The next two seafood suggestions aren't exactly fine dining.restaurants, but they're soaked in Baltimore ambiance:)
Nick's at Cross Street Market and Faidley's at Lexington Market for seafood. Both have excellent raw bars while Nick's has sushi and Faidley's is known for its crabcakes (get the jumbo lump ones). Nick's crab cakes are pretty good, too. Because they're located close to the stadium, both markets are great stops before the game. (and, yes, beer is on tap
And if you're craving a good burger, I suggest Abbey Burger Bistro. http://www.abbeyburgerbistro.com/food...
Hope this helps. :)
