  1. Since Minx made full disclosure, I'll bite:

    Chinese: Hunan Taste. Grace Garden will garner the most votes and is awesome.
    Thai: No good Thai in Baltimore IMHO
    Italian: Cinghiale
    Modern American: High end: Charleston. Mid: Woodberry Kitchen
    Indian: all disappointments, both city and 'burbs
    Burgers: McCabes
    Deli: Attman's
    Diner: Bel Loc (for architecture, not food)
    French: is there even a French restaurant left in Baltimore?
    Greek: Black Olive: but overpriced and overrated. Samos is well priced but really pedestrian food
    Korean: Shin Chon
    Mediterranean: This category is from the 80's/90's, right?
    Mexican: Tortilleria Sinaloa (city), Mari Luna (burbs)
    Crabs: Canton Dockside. Crabs are Gulf but are fat and only crab shack with good beer selection and outdoor seating
    Steakhouse: Yeah, it's Prime Rib
    Sushi: no great sushi. Sushi Ya has moments though
    Pub Food: Bluegrass Tavern (high end pub food/bistro)
    Vegetarian: Why would anyone go to a restaurant without meat?

    1. Responding to what I can:

      Italian: Cinghiale
      Pizza: Iggie's
      Modern American: Woodberry Kitchen (mostly because of the brunch)
      Burgers: Kooper's Tavern
      Barbecue: Andy Nelson's
      Deli: Attman's
      French: Petite Louis (located in the first shopping center in America. True story)
      Greek: Black Olive
      Mediterranean: Baba's
      Mexican: El Trovador (if it's still open. It's El Salvadorean, not Mexican, but shame on you for saying "Mexican" and not "Latin") if they're closed, then Tortilleria Sinaloa
      Seafood: Black Olive
      Steakhouse: Prime Rib
      Pub Food: Brewer's Art. Hands down. (Blue Grass is not so much pub grub as fancy American cuisine. Pub grub is sit at the bar food, which Brewer's does amazingly well. Blue Grass is more going out to dinner food.)
      Vegetarian: One World Cafe

        I didn't say "Latin" because I meant "Mexican." There are other categories I could add. ;)
