The Culinary Scene in Baltimore
Nationally recognized by definitive culinary-travel outlets, Baltimore is a must-visit destination for food lovers. While we will always be known for crabs and fresh seafood, our cuisine is now as diverse as ever, featuring flavors from Italy, the Mediterranean, the Middle East and beyond. With the emergence of the city’s growing craft beer and cocktail scene, neighborhood restaurants, local trends and award-winning chefs, diners are sure to get an authentic culinary experience. The city’s hip, historic neighborhoods feature an array of dining spots, from casual pubs to lavish waterfront restaurants offering full five-course meals – and everything in between.
Further fueling the city's culinary buzz is a growing community of Baltimore makers who lovingly craft small-batch food and drink items in the heart of the city. Indulge in sweet treats at Natasha's Just Brittle, grab a pint at Union Craft Brewing, experience tasty nourishment with some kimchi or kombucha from Hex Ferments or fuel up for the day's adventures with a locally roasted cup of Zeke's Coffee. Wherever your Charm City journey takes you, Baltimore's makers are sure to make your day.
