Baltimore is a delicious city. It’s inventive without being pretentious. It’s fun while still taking the food seriously. It’s forward-thinking while still retaining the history and resources of the area. We may have started as a crab town, but Baltimore has become a foodie mecca. From hand crafted street eats to James Beard Award-winning chefs, Downtown’s restaurateurs are torchbearers for creative and diverse cuisine from all around the world. Here, it’s always about the food.

A wave of restaurants has brought food from around the globe to Charles Center and the Bromo Arts District -- Baltimore's two fastest-growing neighborhoods.

We can help you find just the right menu, whether you're planning a lunch meeting, happy hour, or night on the town. If you're looking for more dining suggestions, including reviews and chef's recipes, scroll down a bit for some insider tips.
