"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.
"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!"
Classic pizza delivered to your door.
Carolina-style barbeque, plus local fave pit beef if you must.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Nice space with good, solid fare.
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.
Baltimore's first hookah lounge has a gorgeous den with rich terra cotta-painted walls lined with plush sofas, low tables and ottomans. Zeeba's serves exceptional Mediterranean tapas and desserts.
