Being a big city with lots of history, Baltimore has plenty of dining variety to offer. Let's begin with Baltimore’s favorite food: the Maryland Blue Crab. Whether it’s a crab cake or a crab sandwich, at a casual crab feast or an upscale seafood restaurant, you just have to try this delicious crustacean. After you savor Chesapeake cuisine, head to Little Italy for an authentic Italian dinner or Greektown for Mediterranean delicacies. Federal Hill and Fell’s Point are replete with cool restaurants and bars, while the Inner Harbor area offers familiar brands along with dozens of local, unique treats.
Die-hard foodie travelers should schedule a trip to Baltimore during Restaurant Week. Twice a year, participating restaurants offer a three-course, fixed-price menu highlighting the best dishes that downtown Baltimore has to offer.
