Classic Cuban food--ropa vieja, pollo adobado--shares space with adventuresome Nuevo Latino dishes like grilled ahi tuna in a spicy orange-chile glaze on Babalu's brief but entertaining menu. It's a fun and energetic restaurant, featuring an enormous portrait of Ricky Ricardo smiling down on diners who perch atop conga-drum bar stools to sip the best mojitos in town.
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.
Arguably downtown's most popular walk-up lunch spot. The perfect falafel pita, outfitted with two--count 'em--chickpea fritters sustains many thankful vegetarians. Others begin there and move on to the meat pitas, the melty grilled panini, the generous rotisserie chicken, and fresh salads. The only discouraging words can be uttered about the prices, which are a dollar more than you'd like to spend on what is basically street food, even really good street food. The constantly filled outdoor tables offer unparalleled perches for watching people dressed in business attire.
Inner Harbor location of local chain Edo Sushi. Classic and inventive sushi, Japanese entrées and appetizers with modern, American twists.
The Main branch of the Enoch Pratt free libraries is a great library right in downtown Baltimore, it also happens to be the State Library Resource Center. Many special events are scheduled every month from film to author readings and their web site is an excellent way to keep up to date.
From its position on the first floor of the Zenith building, within walking distance of the Convention Center, Camden Yards, and the Hilton, Frank and Nic's serves up burgers and other casual fare as well as pricier entrees.

You never have to wait at this Lexington Market stand where if it can be deep-fried it will be. It's almost like the four to 10 people working at Italian Stallion can read your mind as you approach, because by the time you've ordered, paid, and received changed, your grub--from subs to pizza, fries to onion rings--is being passed to you tidily wrapped up. Bonus round: Cold beer on tap to cool the oven-lip you get from biting into that piping-hot lunch.
This upscale chain specializes in sushi and other Asian tastes, along with pizza and some other pubby faves.

While you won't have much trouble finding places to eat along Power Plant Live!'s restaurant row, Mondo Bondo's colorful front and casual inviting setup is sure to lure in the indecisive. The appeal doesn't stop at the door, either. Once inside, you are tempted to choose from a wide array of tasty treats such as the ever-messy (but still worth the napkins it requires) pastrami Reuben, a delicious, almost gourmet chicken cheese steak, and of course plenty of Italian-inspired meals perfect for anyone craving the stick-to-your-ribs variety of entrée. And the real kicker? They deliver.
The Morris A. Mechanic Theatre features great shows including their Broadway Series and both comedy and drama. The Mechanic also has the occasional music concert and children's show.
An evening at Ruth's Chris is pure, luxurious indulgence: incredible steaks (seafood too), a 30,000-bottle wine cellar, and opulent atomosphere. Your only worry is waddling to the table and operating the utensils.
