Providing spanking North Indian food to Mount Vernon for more than 20 years now, Akbar offers an intimate dining room and generous portions of all those comforting meat-eater staples like lamb vindaloo and chicken tikka masala, as well as a good range of veggie-minded options like a delicious palak paneer. Plus weekday lunch and weekend brunch buffets for that decidedly American pastime: all you can eat.
This perennially pretty but historically capsizing street-level restaurant has apparently finally been made seaworthy by the current crew. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a fancy hotel atmosphere, with a casual menu. Call for weekly specials, and keep in mind when visiting nearby museums.
Cool, calm, collective...the perfect spot for breakfast, lunch, or that late night latte.
Nepalese restaurant Kumari does most of its work in the tandoor, or creamily kormaed, very Indian style. The crispy breads are a real treat.
Kyro Pizza offers a reliable menu of Middle Eastern favorites and pizzas with gourmet toppings (e.g. tandoori chicken). Anything that comes out of the wood-burning oven is worth eating.
"We have the best pizza in Baltimore - if you try it you'll be back! Also try our premium Chicken Caesar Salad, one of the most popular items on our menu."
City Paper says: If two people occupy the lone stools in this Mount Vernon carry-out the place feels hot-spot packed, but it's still worth waiting out the rush to order a pizza, calzone, or one of its many subs. It's not so much that Michaelangelo's fare is head and shoulders above others of its ilk--it knows its way around a veggie sub, but that's also hard to muck up. But the food bang for the buck here is pretty sweet. An eight-inch veggie sub is only going to set you back $4.99. And, ladies, Michaelangelo's eight inches actually looks like eight inches.
Heralded for Monday's $8 burger night (fries and any 16 oz. draft come with that, too), along with other come-hither weekly specials, this friendly downtown pub serves up more sophisticated fare--crab cakes, grilled salmon, London broil--along with the requisite offerings of classic Irish pub grub. The best of these are the Guinness-battered fish and chips and the ploughman's platter of Irish bangers, brie, baguette, Granny Smith apples, and crumbled blue cheese. The thick-bread, grilled cheese sandwich is hard to beat, but the live music can be distracting.
A (truly) diverse crowd frequents this living testament to good management. More than decent Tex-Mex accented pub fare, peanut shells on the floor, sports on the TV, good times always. The Sunday brunch buffet is a carnivore's picnic--picture piles of bacon and bursting country sausage.
An Indian restaurant with a beautiful dark wood bar, a copious lunch buffet, and a legendary Sunday brunch, Mughal Garden, in the heart of Mount Vernon, more than holds its own. Service is attentive, the tandoori chicken is juicy, and the curry, yogurt, and flatbreads make the mouth water.
The dark, brick-lined bar, intimate dining room, and long-apron waitstaff suggest sophistication at this Mount Vernon nightspot, but the only thing haute about the Owl Bar is its mega-high ceilings. This menu of spruced-up bar food neither impresses nor disappoints--the tasty, golden crab cakes deliver, but with their steepish price what you're paying for is the ambiance--and its best options aren't that unique: You can trust the calamari. Both its brick-oven pizza and raw bar stay open late, and though the pseudo-fancy pizzas are solid pub grub, perfectly sized for two people approaching a drinking night's end. Do beware the urge to tackle oysters Belvedere--on the half shell with crab imperial--on a full belly of beer.
A superb steakhouse and all-around enjoyable dining experience, plain and simple. From the live nightly piano and bass music to the tuxedoed waitstaff, the Prime Rib has exuded class since it opened its doors in 1965. Be pampered by the courteous staff as you saw into some of the city's tastiest beef and chop cuts, in addition to mouth-watering seafood entrées, including their award-winning crab imperial. Jazz it up with all the generous sides your gut can handle. Hearty appetites and hefty wallets are required, and remember, gentlemen, so are jackets.
Bakery specializing in wedding cakes, specialty cakes, and bakery items such as cookies and pies.
There are many reasons why the Helmand is the go-to restaurant for first dates. The food at this Afghan restaurant is delicious, and it offers a selection that makes both vegetarians and die-hard meat eaters happy. The atmosphere is intimate and inviting, but the prices are low enough that if the date doesn't work out you won't feel burned. We would crawl through glass for the aushak, a rich, leek-filled ravioli, and the kaddo borawni, a delicious pumpkin dish that works as an appetizer or dessert.
Located in Baltimore's scenic Mt. Vernon neighborhood, this internationally renowned museum includes artwork from the 3rd millennium B.C.E. to works from the early 20th century.
