"Best sandwiches ever - enormous, budget-minded, tasty sandwiches. Order takeout online from our website and skip the line!"
When a restaurant offers more than 100 kinds of tequila, its menu can be somewhat beside the point. Like, really, who cares? Blue Agave, however, tries hard to serve highly authentic Mexican food and generally succeeds. Simpler dishes like burritos de carne asada, pork carnitas, and quesadillas are what the kitchen does best; sometimes the more exotic dishes get a little muddled, like maybe the cooks have unfettered access to the tequila. Surprisingly, desserts are terrific. Mexican cuisine isn't renowned for its sweet endings, but Blue Agave's house-made tres leches cake and flan of the day are outstanding.
Jazz pianist on weekdays and a jazz trio on weekends.
Tori Yang's quiet, often overlooked storefront Federal Hill sushi bar has been around for a while, doing nothing more spectacular than creating fresh standards and colorfully pretty sushi combinations. Regulars sit at the bar and devote attention to the maki specials. Put it on your list for lunchtime raw-fish cravings, or for Sunday evenings when you don't feel like dressing up. The liquor license is a major plus.
"Family themed Italian Restaurant. Known for the distinctive square pizza. Also serving pastas, subs, calzones, salads and wraps."
This little Charles Street gallery/boutique has all kinds of custom-made crafts for sale, from candles and placemats to ceramics and jewelry. In addition, the gallery puts on 4-7 shows each year, usually group shows built around a theme. Many local artists are represented.
"Burgers are the specialty at this upscale Federal Hill bar and grill. Succulent half-pounds of Angus beef come with a variety of interesting toppings to satisfy the hungriest of diners. A well-balanced menu caters to virtually anyone, including lots of appetizers and few well-executed entrees. After dining stay and play at this very crowded yuppie bar with a host of Baltimore's prettiest people. DJ plays until 2 a.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. As they say, "Fly off the Hook" at Mad River."
In addition to its permanent collection, this gallery, which was formerly located in Portland but has moved to Baltimore's Federal Hill, presents monthly changing exhibitions of solo artists' work and group shows. The artists range from local talents to internationally known. Montage also offers a spring lecture series on modern art by guest artists.
A reliable source of seafood and libations with a spacious deck for nice weather.
Local neighborhood sports bar. Great cheesesteaks and other bar food. Home for local NY Jets, Penn State Nittany Lions, Buffalo Sabres, and New York Yankee fans.
This lively Federal Hill cantina remains merrily unfazed by growing awareness of authentic Mexican cuisine. Arriving with the first wave of Mexican restaurants in Baltimore, the alleyside restaurant still whips up those heaping plates of enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, and (their best effort) super tacos. Menu mentionable: hot hot hot habanero-style chicken wings.
"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.
Cigar and college bar with pool tables, golf games, and a large selection of beer and single malt scotches. The pub grub menu offers huge burgers, sandwiches, hearty salads, and appetizers.
This restaurant has the best view of the Inner Harbor. Although famous for crab cakes, cream of crab soup, steak, and martinis, the Scupp's Sunday brunch is like climbing aboard a cruise ship for the afternoon.
Comfortable microbrewery that serves straightforward Baltimore classics: Crabs, oysters and good beer.
SoBo Café serves classic American cuisine smack dab in the middle of Federal Hill's drinking district. The menu changes faster than the pH level in the harbor, with nightly renditions of traditional Yankee staples like mac 'n' cheese and chicken pot pie. Sobo regularly offers more creative choices, as well, like the seared duck breast with maple chipotle cream, asparagus, and Gorgonzola polenta and the blackened grouper with crab imperial and covered with a honey white wine coulis. The ambiance is intimate and inviting--a great way to kick off a first date before venturing into the local nightlife.
Beer, coal-fired pizza, and televisions are the draws at Federal Hill’s Social Pub and Pie, where the drafts only slightly outnumber the pies and screens (that’s 12 drafts, nine pizzas, and 11 televisions, for those keeping count).
Indian classics and a lunch buffet.
Thai Arroy is the prettiest little storefront Thai restaurant you ever did meet. The smartly costumed servers and decorative touches, like elaborate cloths placed under glass-topped tables, help distract from the reality that the food is just shy of greatness. The vegetables are pleasurably crisp, and the larb, a cold peppery beef salad finished off with fresh mint, is excellent, but meals are often too mild. Still, Thai Arroy is a favorite spot for affordable lunch specials. For dinner, try the ped chu-chee, perfect duck topped with chile paste in coconut milk. BYOB.
