Looking for fine dining near M & T Bank Stadium

  • 8

Hello Ravens fans!

I'm a sommelier coming down from Toronto to watch the Jets(Dad's team) vs. Ravens(My team) on Sunday Oct. 2nd. We are staying within walking distance of the stadium but would easily venture a little ways to get a great dinner before the game. A great wine list would be a big plus. Well prepared, high quality ingredients, local food, etc. as well. Cost isn't really relevent as this is a once a year thing for us.

  1. For a great wine list, with price no concern - Charleston. Not really walkable from the stadium, but it's a pretty short cab ride. If you're staying downtown, it would be walkable.

      Closed on Sundays. It's not really a pre-game meal type place either, it's probably going to take almost 3 hours. If you are planning on getting dinner here on Saturday night Charleston is an excellent choice.

    2. You might try BlueGrass Tavern. I didn't see the wine list as I stuck to cocktails, but I am sure it is probably on their website.

        2nd for BlueGrass Tavern. It's walking distance to the stadium and you can stroll through Fed Hill and get the whole pre-game atmosphere. Very good food and service.

        I also recommend stopping by Nick's at Cross St. Market on your way for large beers (suprisingly decent selection).

        1. I'd suggest Cinghale, which is no more than a 5-10 min. cab ride from the stadium in traffic. We had a fabulous dinner there a couple weeks ago. An amazing wine list coupled with outstanding food! And, you can sit in the Enoteca area, which is more casual (but has the same wine, food etc.). Enjoy the game! We also have a family Ravens (me) vs. Jets (my husband) rivalry!

            Second for cinghiale. The all-Italian wine list is awe-inspiring.

              Third vote for Cinghiale.
