Going to be in Baltimore area this weekend and someone recomd the Mt Washington Tavern. It is not far from the hotel we are staying at (Timonium). Also any recos for a family of 5 (teenagers and adults) in Fells Pt for an early dinner Friday. Looking for an place with good food (steaks and seafood), possibly with some history, interesting decor etc. ....thanks

    Don't bother with Mt Washington. The food is terrible. Oh yeah, also it just burned to the ground: http://articles.baltimoresun.com/2011...

    Near Timonium for an awesome lunch at a unique place I'd suggest cutting across Padonia road, hanging a right on Falls Road, and eating at Jake's on a picnic table. Amazing grill joint with a real home-made vibe. I love that place.

    In Fell's, maybe Kooper's Tavern. Very, very good pub grub.

      Thames Street Oyster House is very good and hip at the moment.

        Is Jake's a carryout?

          They have some tables inside and a couple of picnic tables outside (next to a babbling brook) but it's the most casual place imaginable and a lot of people pick up orders (especially for game day, stuff like that). It's located in an old garage. To me, it's basically the sort of place that you wish you had around the corner.

          I would recommend Mezze in Fells Point. It is tapas oriented and conducive to sharing a lot of small plates, providing great variety.

          Not far from your hotel in Timonium is an excellent Italian restaurant in the heart of Towson, Cafe Troia. the atmosphere is lovely and the food exceptionally good. FoiGras
