Where To Eat

Visit Baltimore - The Official Tourism Site for Baltimore
If Baltimoreans are famous for anything, it's their talent for enjoying life to the fullest. How else can you explain the region's number of fabulous restaurants, with an astonishing array of cuisines from haute to howdy (plus every ethnic menu you can think of!) Topping it all off is our own world-famous Chesapeake Bay cuisine (and it doesn't get any better than that!)
