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.
"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."
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."
Spacious pub on the corner of Cross Street and Charles. They serve cheese steaks and sushi alike, but no cheesesteak sushi, sorry.
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.
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.
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.
"Spoons, next to the Cross Street Market in Federal Hill, has been a local favorite for years. In 2006, it became the first Certified Green Restaurant in the State of Maryland. Spoons offers a large variety breakfast items that are served all day. Lunch items include soups, salads and sandwiches. Besides in-house roasted coffee and espresso, they recently added local brews and sustainable wines."
Indian classics and a lunch buffet.
