The silky smooth Afghan dishes you've come to love uptown at the Helmand--aushak, mantwo, boulawani--are yours for the ordering at this modest and very sunny downtown eat-in/carryout joint. Kebabs skewer expertly grilled meat, and the beloved kaddo (pan-fried baked baby pumpkin) is done justice. But go on weekends to avoid the business crowds.
"Best sandwiches ever - enormous, budget-minded, tasty sandwiches. Order takeout online from our website and skip the line!"
Centro offers a variety of Spanish and South American tapas dishes. Extensive list of wine, sherry and port from Spain and South America.
"A casual tavern atmosphere downstairs, quieter non-smoking dining room upstairs. Clayton's features an American cuisine with a regional emphasis. Located in Historic Federal Hill, Clayton's features 15 eclectic drafts, wines by the glass and bottle and a full line of spirits, all designed to compliment the chef's menu. Daily features from the kitchen and nightly specials at the bar make Clayton's a geat destination!"
At Corks the wine list is every bit as important as the dinner menu (where entrée descriptions are accompanied by specific wine recommendations). The owners are wine fanatics who search out vintages both excellent and obscure and then craft a seasonal menu to complement their wine finds. We love that many wines are available by the glass, allowing each course to have its own appropriate quaff. The food is intelligent but fun New American, with standout dishes like a duck breast with watercress salad and mission fig tartlet. Attention to detail is evident in everything that Corks does, from smoking its own trout to removing menu items when ingredients do not meet the chef's demands for excellence.

"We are first and foremost 'a tequila bar'-- we are a Disneyworld for Tequila drinkers. When you belly up to our bar, you’ll be served a complimentary shot of tequila in a half-lime--our signature "mini-margarita." We offer more than 90 unique tequilas as well as 15 types of Mexican beers. You will definitely want to join Baltimore's only "tequila club." Don’t miss our specialty margaritas--Baltimore's best, such as the Limelight, the Bullfighter and the Don. Our menu is Mexican-inspired but simple at heart. We serve fresh... all of the traditional Mexican offerings in generous portions such as black bean and tortilla soup, a variety of salads, tacos, burritos, 'quesadilleos.' one of a kind nachos and 'salsa on my balsa' (that's Mexican meatballs served on a bed of four homemade salsas and topped with cheese). Save room for the Key 'Highway' lime pie. Join us each week night to take adavantage of our food and drink specials. Monday - half price margaritas. Tuesday - Dos Doses - 2 for 1 everything - food and drink. Wednesday - $2 fish tacos and $1 drafts. Happy Hour - half price margaritas and beer. Great food and drink in a simple yet hip atmosphere.
See you soon at lime."
For a city with few Cuban immigrants and thus little by way of comparison, Little Havana is a reasonably good Cuban restaurant. The paella is flavorful and the Cuban sandwich is as it should be, though neither these nor the rest of the menu will likely satisfy Cuban-cuisine cognoscenti. But since people don't flock here for the food, that all seems beside the point. Little Havana is much more of a bar than a restaurant; Sunday brunch is more popular for its all-you-can-drink mimosas and Bloody Marys by the pitcher than its huevos habaneros.
Spacious pub on the corner of Cross Street and Charles. They serve cheese steaks and sushi alike, but no cheesesteak sushi, sorry.
Matsuri stands out as much for its broad array of Japanese cooked dishes as its sushi. Witness the robata appetizers, flavorful skewers strung with beef, seafood, or vegetables and then grilled. Vegetarians will find Matsuri friendly, indeed; half the robata are vegetarian, and other dishes like agedashi tofu make for a satisfying meat-free meal. Of course, the sushi is very fine too, especially if you pick something from Matsuri's impressive selection of sakes to go with it. True sushi fanatics might want to try one of Matsuri's periodic sushi-making seminars, hands-on yummy fun.

"A local neighborhood corner bar where the beer is cold & cheap! $2 domestic bottles every day all day.
Karaoke every Saturday hosted by kj DandaMan with over 50,000 song selections."
Federal Hill residents are lucky to have such a dark and cozy corner bar. On a recent visit, though, entrèes and sandwiches were spotty, though the fries were terrific. Find one or two more decent menu items, and you've got yourself a hangout.
If you can overlook the Fox News channel playing on the TV, this enduring and cozy Federal Hill spot has a lot to offer--very patient, even indulgent service and a gracious atmosphere carved out of twin 1860s rowhouses. The eclectic house specials include terrific calamari, potato-encrusted beef, Black Angus steaks, and, most of all, specimen panko-encrusted crab cakes, served with smashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Al fresco dining, good Sunday brunch, and the bar's welcoming atmosphere for solitary travelers are also pluses.
