I'm celebrating my 40th with a handful of friends on a Saturday night in April. Trying to think of something fun and moderately priced for dinner. Would like to be in an area where we can wander to a bar afterwards since none of us get a night out all that often. RA keeps popping in my head for atmosphere and price but was hoping for something a little newer (to me). Any type of food - sushi, thai, mexican, new american. Hoping to avoid a 20-something scene. Ideas?
Two places in Fells Point immediately come to mind-- 1) The Olive Room-- This is owned by the same people who own the Black Olive. The food is just as good, but it's a lot cheaper. I actually like the atmosphere better here than at the Black Olive, and there is a great view of the harbor from most tables. 2) Mezze-- Tapas is always fun and easy to make affordable. Mezze has great drinks and wines, along with a diverse selection of excellent food. My favorites include the lamb meatballs and roasted salmon. Happy early bday!
