Where to Eat in Baltimore Right Now

To name the best Baltimore restaurants is sort of a complicated task. We’re used to being told we’re a stopover city, a place to pass through on the way from DC to New York. And, sometimes, we relish that. We have so many well-kept secrets here that it’s nice to enjoy them for ourselves.

But, like a good pot of steamed crabs, we can no longer keep a lid on the great restaurants and bars Baltimore has to offer. We have James Beard-nominated chefs and cocktail programs, tons of innovative restaurants, and, yes, bushels of local seafood to sample.

Whether you’re dining in or ordering takeout, check out the newest hot spots or keep scrolling to find some of the best places that have persevered over the last several years.
