One of the city's most consistently excellent restaurants for many years, the Ambassador Dining Room serves elegant, sophisticated Indian food in an equally elegant and opulent setting. Classic Indian cookery--curries, vindaloos, biryanis--are always terrific, but the real dazzlers reside under the Chef's Recommendations section of the menu, where out-of-the-ordinary dishes like shrimp adrak feature a tightrope walk between green chile heat and restrained acerbic lime and sweet tamarind. The vegetarian menu is large and varied, and offerings like the outstanding Bengan bhartha (cumin and coriander-roasted eggplant) are skillfully prepared. The Ambassador's popular lunchtime buffet, served seven days a week, is a terrific deal.

The museum also hosts several special exhibitions, which rotate throughout the year.
Purveyors of fine desserts and teas, and known for their gourmet dipped Granny Smith apples.
Don't make the mistake of coming to New Wyman Park for dinner or at all on Sundays. This is strictly a meat and potatoes, breakfast and lunch for the working masses type of diner. Wyman Park's seriously cheap and good food, however, is worth shaping a schedule around; it's all cooked with care from scratch, the way diner food is supposed to be but so seldom actually is. Homemade soups are always great, and the turkey club is carved from an actual bird; a good rule of thumb for selecting from Wyman's menu is gravy equals good.
Inexpensive Japanese and Korean food in Charles Village. Large appetizers threaten early satiation. Save room for a pot of noodles and green-tea or red-bean ice cream.
Besides the cheap tuna steak sandwich and spinach salad, the menu at this café/bar near Homewood includes vegan and vegetarian food outside of the hummus and black-bean burrito world (though they also have both) with a tempeh Reuben and a Philly cheese “steak-less” made with seitan. It's easy to find a favorite dish and stick with it, but try one of the specials--the occasional veggie sloppy Joes and pretty pasta combos are money. Breakfast offerings of eggs, fake sausages, and bagels go well with a Bloody Mary from their full bar, and organic/fair trade coffee and espresso complements a full dessert case.
Pete's Grille has three drawbacks. It's small, so finding a seat at the counter--and there are only counter seats at Pete's--is nigh impossible during the lunch rush or any time on weekends. They only serve breakfast and lunch, and close early even for a breakfast-lunch-only joint. Otherwise, Pete's is a darn near flawless restaurant. Prices are terrifically cheap, and the food is homemade and excellent. Tenderly supervised long-cooked home fries reach Platonic perfection here, and the thick, thick, thick shakes are made with old-fashioned milk-shake mixers.
Vegetarian and asian cafe, formerly on Charles Street, now on the Johns Hopkins campus.
Milk shakes and burgers and lamb saag and naan? Somehow it works at this chrome-spangled but otherwise unflashy neighborhood diner/Indian joint. Hot fudge sundaes, lemon meringue pie, and Tamber's Brownie, topped with ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry complete the faux '50s picture. Recently reopened after renovations and expansion.
The granddaddy of Thai dining in Baltimore is as good as ever. Thai standbys like pad Thai and tom kha kai soup are rendered with flair, while the curries--red, green, or yellow--can be tailored to your choice of meat or seafood as well as degree of heat. Vegetarians will be pleased to know that any dish can be prepared with tofu, even if not so offered on the menu. Nightly specials explore more exotic fare not found at most other local Thai places, and the staff here is especially polished and professional. Dining at Thai Restaurant still feels like a special occasion, even when it's not.
