  • Ambassador Dining Room

    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.

  • Art Workshop of Charles Village
  • Baltimore Museum of Art

    The Baltimore Museum of Art is home to the renowned Cone Collection, and its permanent collection also includes American Painting and Decorative Arts, European Painting and Sculpture, Arts of Africa, Asia, the Americas and Oceania, Modern and Contemporary Art, Prints, Drawings and Photographs and a stunning sculpture garden. The museum also hosts several special exhibitions, which rotate throughout the year.

  • C&C Carryout
  • Carma's Café

    "Nestled in the side of a building on 32nd street is the best coffee you will ever drink. Seriously, it's not just us that think so, they have won Best Coffee, Best Sandwiches, Best Fresh Yogurt… the list goes on, from all sorts of Baltimore papers. With a cool staff, bottomless cups of fresh brewed coffee, and outdoor tables great for studying or hanging out, Carma's Cafe might just be the best coffee house in the country. We may be biased, but you will be too after biting into any of their homemade sandwiches and goodies (many made by Carma herself!) Since space is at a premium in this popular shop, order in advance online, walk over, skip the line and pick up under the FetchFood sign. If only everything in life were this easy."

  • Donna's Cafe and Coffee Bar

    A decade and a half ago, before the word “Starbucks” had ever crossed Baltimore's collective lips, the original Donna's in Mount Vernon introduced this town to lattes and machiattos and hazelnut sodas. Donna's also helped make roasted vegetables, bread dipped in olive oil, and mesclun greens into ubiquitous '90s restaurant staples 'round these parts. It can only be a good thing that Donna's has expanded over the years, bringing to various corners of Baltimore a healthy, culinarily savvy menu of interesting salads (like Granny Smith apples, walnuts, and Gorgonzola) and deluxe sandwiches (after all these years we still heart Donna's pan bagna). Not to mention quite possibly the best bread pudding anywhere in the universe.

  • Gertrude's

    With the some of the best Maryland crab soup anywhere, Gertrude's is the spot for Free State foodies, thanks to celebrity chef John Shields' artfully prepared seasonal menu, which is heavy on the seafood and easy on the eyes. The build-your-own entrées are popular here, as are the gorgeous crab cakes. Rivaling the food for tasteful flair is the outdoor patio, which overlooks the Baltimore Museum of Art's meandering sculpture garden. A perfect place to impress out-of-towners without breaking the bank; also ideal for a quiet lunch among the academic cognoscenti of adjacent Johns Hopkins University.

  • Miller's Court
  • New Wyman Park Restaurant

    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.

  • Niwana

    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.

  • Normals Books and Music
  • One World Café

    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.

  • Orient Express
  • Paul Chen Hong Kong Restaurant
  • Ruby Tuesday

    National family-style restaurant in the heart of Charles Village. Burgers, seafood, sandwiches, soups, salads and steaks.

  • Sam's Bagels and More
  • Silk Road Café

    Vegetarian and asian cafe, formerly on Charles Street, now on the Johns Hopkins campus.

  • Super Laundromat
  • Sweet Sin Bakery
  • Tamber's

    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.

  • Terra Cafe
  • Thai Restaurant

    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.
