Gastropub dedicated to varieties of burger--Roseda beef, turkey, veggie--with a wealth of interesting approaches and toppings.
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.

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.
Crepes; the French word for paper thin pancakes, are versatile and healthy. They can be eaten by hand or as a full meal. Make them savory or sweet, Crêpes are basking in the international culinary spotlight. The light dough makes crêpes perfect to adapt the filling to anyone's taste, no matter their diet, their age, or their cultural preference.
City crepes is located in the heart of Baltimore, only a couple minutes away from the beautiful harbor. While in historic federal hill, you can take your crepe and coffees away or take a break in the French-style cafe.

A laid-back urban bistro in Federal Hill.
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.
Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this is one of those multitasking spots that can be a hit if you arrive at the right time in the proper mood or a miss if your timing's off. The ebb-and-flow between Metropolitan's wine-bar and coffeehouse identities requires some experience, but it's worth the trouble. The cool woody interior (formerly the original One World Café) attracts laptop users by day, and the wine bar has become an oasis for Federal Hill residents wanting to avoid the frat-house atmosphere that pervades neighboring spots. The regular menu comprises adult fare like sesame-coated salmon fillets and light fare like quesadillas and Reubens.
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.
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.
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).
"Stalking Horse is the newest and Hippest place in Federal hill. We feature Homemade pizzas, quesadillas and a signature Jumbo Lump Crabcake. Also featuring over 50 different Vodkas. Stalking Horse also is the only place to enjoy Vodka and redbull frozen Slushie drinks. Other frozens also available $4.50 all the time."
Chef Tom Chungkasoon's Federal Hill restaurant looks a little careworn, but the sharp Thai-fusion menu still outdoes virtually every other place in town in sheer audacity--medallions of ostrich, sweetbreads, rack of boar, and frog legs with fried garlic show up. There are plenty of triumphant executions here--ink in a date with the days-cured salmon, wrapped in shoestring potatoes and served with crabmeat beurre blanc. Moderately priced Thai dishes offer up tantalizing nuances of flavor. Pass up the drab dining room in favor of the foodie's seating near the open kitchen.
This little gallery in Federal Hill exhibits works by contemporary Russian artists, primarily oil or watercolor paintings, prints and lacquer boxes. The gift shop also carries hand-made Russian crafts including icons and nesting dolls.
