The collection of Sesame Street illustrations explores the history of favorite characters such as Cookie Monster, Elmo, Big Bird, Grover, Oscar, Bert, and Ernie.
This Corned Beef Row relic is a local institution, and with good reason. Elbow your way through the boisterous lunchtime crowds down to the end of the long, long, long deli counter and speak up loud and clear when it's your turn to order your corned beef on rye, hot pastrami, Reuben, or kosher dog, all as good as you'll find in town. You could step across to Attman's modest, ambiance-free “Kibbitz Room” and dine in, but once you've survived the line, you've already had the second-best experience Attman's offers. They usually wrap up the best to go.
Dramatic decore, an award-winning chef, and a homey, yet inventive menu emphasizing seasonal and sustainable.
The Baltimore Arena is your basic mid-sized city large venue with shows ranging from kid's stuff, popular music stars, sporting events, and comedy acts.
You know you're at a real-deal Chinese restaurant when the fish tanks aren't for decoration but rather choosing tonight's dinner. Chinatown Café serves righteously authentic food, and it's currently the city's only dim sum dining option. The best time for dim sum is on weekends when carts roll around with steamer baskets full of tempting treats like curried cuttlefish and shark-fin dumplings, but the dim sum menu is always available. Standouts include Chinese broccoli, green peppers stuffed with minced shrimp in black bean sauce, and truly amazing beef ribs in a deep-heat black pepper sauce. If the menu seems overwhelming or unfamiliar, ask the friendly owner for advice. BYOB.
A small takeout cafe featuring homemade sweets, soups, and wraps.
Inner Harbor location of local chain Edo Sushi. Classic and inventive sushi, Japanese entrées and appetizers with modern, American twists.
There are many, many, many places to get a crab cake in Baltimore, but only one Faidley's. It's hardly the most glamorous place to dine on divinely lumpy, golden cakes, but it's certainly one of the most democratic--packed along Lexington Market's counters you'll be cheek by plastic fork with downtown suits, safety orange vest-wearing road-crew guys, and tourists in search of a real-deal local delicacy. Simple is best here: Splurge on the all-lump crab cake and take it unadorned, its craggy-surfaced homeliness bespeaking the large chunks of back fin inside. Break apart the generously sized patty with said plastic fork and breath the salty, buttery Old Bay scent of perfection. Pile onto a saltine cracker (optional) and enjoy.

The northern Indian food is just fine, but the Nepalese dishes, especially the chicken momo (big, fluffy dumplings) and the sukait, a cured lamb appetizer, are fascinating and delicious.

One of the hidden treasures of Baltimore, this Seton Hill Italian-goods store is both deli and grocery. The deli menu includes a delicious prosciutto, mozzarella, and pesto sandwich, as well as a handful of other equally satisfying house sandwiches. In addition to the deli, they sell an assortment of Italian groceries at affordable prices so you can re-create the Trinacria experience in your own home. Watch out for those cookies displayed behind the counter; you won't be able to stop at a dozen.
Dining at Werner's is like being in a one-sided relationship. The often-brusque staff does not seem to care in the least what you think of them. No matter how you make with the smiling eye contact or amusing chitchat, they simply are not impressed. Don't take it personally--it's not you, really it's not. It's merely standard operating procedure at this venerable downtown breakfast and lunch spot, where the focus is on simple home-cooked food served fast and cheap. Save the smile for the cashier.
