Can't miss this purple-painted house beside Falls Road, nor would you want to miss the selection of artful sweet and savory stuff turned out of its ovens.
"This Euro-style neighborhood cafe serves the business and court crowd by day, and is a full-blown restaurant at night. Featuring seafood, paninis, vegetarian and sweets. During the live music in the evenings, you can find the local college students and the nearby residents using the wifi, dining with a date on the deck, and of course french pressing their coffee."
Chameleon Café is one of those truly magical, invaluable local restaurants where the food is always inventive and excellent yet well-priced, the wine list is intelligently chosen, and a table is almost always available. The menu changes seasonally but always shows classic Continental flare with offerings like braised veal cheeks with grapes and cremini mushrooms or house-made charcroute garni. Despite the sophisticated menu, Chameleon has a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere and knowledgeable but affable servers. Don't miss the house-made desserts. Kudos to chef/co-owner--and Parkville native--Jeff Smith for returning to the 'hood to bring us this stellar but comfortable bistro.
As a cuisine, South Carolina low country cooking achieves perfect balance between delicacy and richness. In Baltimore, Charleston restaurant is the place to experience the magic of delicate ingredients in deluxe combinations, like heads-on shrimp with smoky tasso ham and buttery grits. The ever-evolving menu is a sophisticated but deeply pleasurable board of fare, always skillfully executed and flawlessly served. Every course is worth lingering over, savoring the intricate flavors of, say, Charleston's incomparable shellfish bisque while anticipating the upcoming plate of pan-seared duck breast in a Burgundy reduction sauce. And the new pri[vegetarian] fixe menu allows you to create your own three- to eight-course meal from a series of small plates, so you can pick whatever dishes look best to you without being a slave to the whole appetizer/entrée hierarchy.
Crepes; the French word for paper thin pancakes, are versatile and healthy. They can be eaten by hand or as a full meal. Make them savory or sweet, Crêpes are basking in the international culinary spotlight. The light dough makes crêpes perfect to adapt the filling to anyone's taste, no matter their diet, their age, or their cultural preference.
City crepes is located in the heart of Baltimore, only a couple minutes away from the beautiful harbor. While in historic federal hill, you can take your crepe and coffees away or take a break in the French-style cafe.
Crêpe du Jour's namesake creations alone make this small, warm-hearted eatery worth a visit. Crêpes both sweet and savory form the backbone of the menu and make an enjoyable lunch or light dinner on their own; particularly good are classics like delicate yet deluxe crêpes Suzette with citrus zest, butter, and Grand Marnier. At dinner, however, Crêpe du Jour's menu expands to classic French plates like carre d'agneau (lamb chops in a red wine demiglace) and steak Onglet (gussied-up steak frites). Before you ask, of course escargot are served. Weekend brunch at Crêpe du Jour's outdoor tables is particularly pleasant.
Award wining restaurant featuring an eclectic mix of New American and French Cuisine. Menu changes monthly ala carte options and a fabulous prix fixe menu with wine suggestions. Ideal for business meetings, social gatherings or weddings.
Located in the snug dining room of 4 East Madison Inn, Feast offers homey, sustainably sourced comfort food with a gourmet twist and sweet service. Desserts prompt a "just like Mom used to make" thumbs up.
Upscale French bistro serving an abundance of seafood, poultry, appetizers, pasta, and meat. Their lunch menu includes sandwiches and most desserts are prepared onsite.
What could be mo' betta than gazing in your lover's eyes over candlelight? How about, in addition, a great aged Angus filet, a New York strip, or a grilled lamb chop in a mahogany-style restaurant that makes you feel like you're in the middle of a state long on Southern comfort? You'll never tire of good choices at Louisiana--like the gumbo or the catfish with Cajun collard greens and tasso ham. And if you're feeling French, try the rockfish with fennel, creamy sauce, and jumbo-lump crabmeat. Très magnifique.

Classic French bistro meets weeknight Baltimore. The menu changes seasonally, but some dishes are perrenial. Steak frites, the legendary Paris bar snack, here with fork-tender beef and garlicky fries. The confit de canard and terrine de foie gras are too rich to eat every day, but surely once a week can't hurt. The small but well-considered list of wines by the glass allows diners to savor some vintages that might otherwise be unaffordable by the bottle.
Tiny can't begin to describe this kiosk/café tucked between Charles and Everyman theatres. But good things come in small packages and, besides, who needs to sit to eat crêpes? Sofi's “savory” crêpes, like ham and cheese, are pretty filling sandwiches. There are also “sweet” crêpes, with fillings like butterscotch, chocolate, and Nutella. The savory selections are good, and a nice change of pace from the usual sandwich shops, but Nutella smeared on a warm crêpe is a thing of the gods.
French decor and simple ingredients keep the flavors bright and the room comfortable.
