Dramatic decore, an award-winning chef, and a homey, yet inventive menu emphasizing seasonal and sustainable.
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.
To be honest we are not quite sure how Burke's has remained in operation since 1934. The food is hard-core old school--meat and potatoes with gravy and fried seafood baskets--while the quality is simply OK. But we like that Burke's lost-in-time menu shows Baltimore's German roots; it's one of the last places in town you can still find sour beef or calves liver, plus what's not to love about a place where potato pancakes are offered as a vegetable. It's also a reasonably priced and locally owned eatery amid the downtown sea of corporate chain restaurants, and serves a full menu until 2 a.m. OK, now we get it.
Busy lunch counter in the middle of the Block, a favorite of video store and dance club employees.
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.
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.
Located on the waterfront with romantic surroundings.
Downtown diner used as a set for numerous Barry Levinson films, most notably "Diner."
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.

Casual fare affordably priced is Maisy's raison-d'etre. All entees, except the crab cakes, are under $20, including generously-sized pizzas from the restaurant's wood-burning oven.
