Food energizes, replenishes, and revitalizes the mind, body, and soul.
Here, we provide a list of famous restaurants and diners in the Baltimore metro
area. Use this guide to satisfy your taste buds when either visiting or living
Restaurant Description: One of Little Italy's priciest locales, Boccaccio offers a
range of Italian classics, including thick lasagna, steak Florentine,
veal, and linguine with mussels in a tasty tomato sauce. Specials rotate
by the season, and Chef Giovanni Rigato works only with ingredients he
can obtain fresh. Dover sole, rabbit, duck, wild mushrooms and sometimes
truffles are among the seasonal ingredients artfully incorporated into
his fine Northern Italian dishes.
|Tio Pepe |
10 E Franklin Street
Baltimore, MD 21202
Restaurant Description: The scene at this Mount Vernon institution has changed
little in its 35-plus years: The cozy, underground space is defined by
elegant arches and flickering candlelight. Career waiters slip between
tightly-packed tables topped with white linen and colorful pitchers of
sangria, delivering generous portions of traditional yet innovative
Spanish cuisine. Continental entrees such as filet of sole with bananas
and hollandaise sauce and beef in a sherry sauce with mushrooms are
splendid examples of the creativity displayed by the chef.
801 S. Broadway
Baltimore, MD 21231
Restaurant Description: The round, green-and-white Jimmy's sign is famous in Fells
Point, since it's long been a popular spot to breakfast. Best described
as simple, good and old-fashioned American diner food, Jimmy's boasts
loads of breakfast offerings. An authentic Baltimore landmark, Jimmy's
is known for its down-home cheap meals and hustle-bustle diner-like
atmosphere. At this greasy spoon, big portions and free-flowing alcohol
served all day have become trademarks.
Rocky Run Tap & Grill
3105 Saint Paul St
Baltimore, MD 21218
Restaurant Description: Part neighborhood bistro, part tavern and part family
restaurant, Rocky Run has all the bases covered. Before you even walk in
the door the first part of the equation is obvious. On pleasant days a
row of umbrella-covered sidewalk tables is occupied with diners digging
in to some of the best burgers in town. The extensive menu offers hearty
fare of steaks, seafood, sandwiches, salads and pastas plus creative
appetizer like the Louisiana sticks, corn tortillas stuffed with chicken
and a Cajun cream filling served with a spicy dipping sauce.
26 Yorktowne Plaza
Cockeysville, MD 21030
Restaurant Description: Bamboo House is not located in the cleanest of areas, but
ince you walk inside, it's a different story. Sometimes you'll find
treasures like periwinkles and soft-shell crabs on the menu, at their
best simply prepared, say, stir-fried with asparagus or crisply fried.
And hearty-looking specimens from the lobster tank are always available
to be prepared as you like -- Cantonese, say, or fiery Szechuan-style.
The highlight, however, is exactingly fresh whole rockfish, perfectly
steamed and served in your choice of sauce; we recommend the zingy black
bean. Sushi is also available.
289 W. Main St.
Westminster, MD 21157
Restaurant Description: The restaurant focuses on quality served in large
quantities and it offers old-style favorites such as roast turkey, fried
chicken and pork chops. Lunch and breakfast are available, too -- but
pay close attention to the time. When Baugher's says it won't cook
hotcakes, creamed chipped beef or poached eggs after 11:30AM, they mean
it. One of the biggest challenges of a Baugher's meal is saving room for
the scrumptious desserts. Homemade ice creams and pies (more than 30
varieties, including some sugarless) have been delighting stuffed diners
Helen's Garden Caf?
2908 O'Donnell St
Baltimore, MD 21224
Restaurant Description: Housed in two rowhouses knitted together at the former
exterior alley, now enclosed and painted with a lively floral mural,
this O'Donnell Square old-timer has come a long way from its former
carryout beginnings. Over time it expanded to include a bar and the
elegant upper and lower dining rooms, which now provide a tranquil haven
in busy Canton. Known for its extensive wine list, which includes more
than 40 wines by the glass, Helen's food is also a big draw. Consider
their blackened tuna with a tomato cream sauce or the Roman lamb, which
is brined and sauteed with honey, grapes and feta.
925 Eastern Ave.
Baltimore, MD 21202
2907 O'Donnell St
Baltimore, MD 21224
Restaurant Description: Mexican cuisine is hearty, cheap and always great with
beer. And Nacho Mamas' collection of Natty Boh posters, Orioles
memorabilia and the Elvis grotto create a funky and cozy environment.
The bar is generally packed with an upbeat crowd of locals and downtown
office-workers who break here for lunch or adjourn here for happy hour
and dinner. Entrees here run $10-$15 -- a little pricier than other
Mexican spots -- but the innovative menu and freshness make it worth it.
Go for unique items, like the crab quesadilla, a fusion of B-more and
Mexico. The chili is always good, and if you have never had chicken
mole, this is the place to try it.
113 Back River Neck Road
Essex, MD 21221
Restaurant Description: The only visible remnants of this Essex institution's
origins in the 1960s is the giant pizza guy out front. The building has
been completely revamped with a Tuscan flair and surprisingly luxurious
touches for a take-out joint. You'll find no pineapple or crab toppers
here -- just the basics. But when those basics are always fresh and
often homemade -- like the sausage and meat sauce -- who needs fancy?
Even with extra toppings, the thin crispy crust is not the least bit
soggy in the middle. Besides pizza, there is an extensive menu of
Italian entrees, plus Maryland favorites like crab cakes or shrimp,
served with homey sides of peas and corn.
Gunning's Seafood Restaurant
7304 Parkway Dr
Hanover, MD 21076
Restaurant Description: The repetitious thwacks of wooden crab hammers at work
helps drown out the din of takeoffs and landings at nearby BWI Airport
(and the occasional off-key karaoke tune from the adjoining bar). Want
to pass as a real Marylander, even if you're an out-of-town novice? Ask
for a side of the seasoning and dip your bounty into it. A seven-ounce
crab cake is enough for two meals, while the fried hard crab -- lump
crabmeat stuffed into a steamed hard crab, battered and deep-fried --
looks like something that might do battle with Godzilla over Tokyo.
