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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
