Blue Hill Tavern: Over in Brewers Hill you can score an delecatble RW deal at this American tavern. Enjoy a meal and drink from the long and impressive wine list (including 10 great bottles under $25) and perhaps snag a seat on the outdoor roof patio under the light of the Natty Boh sign (938 South Conkling St.; 443-388-9363).
Jack’s Bistro: Master chef Ted Stelzenmuller has prepared a menu that has our mouth watering already, especially since it includes the famous mac + cheese + chocolate. The cocktail menu is inventive and not to be skipped over as a companion for dinner or dessert; we suggest the chocolate peanut butter martini for a sweet post-dinner treat (3123 Elliott St.; 410-878-6542).
Marie Louise Bistro: This eclectic Mt Vernon bistro offers not only a wide variety of desserts to die for, but also a pair of sangrias that are worthy of recognition. Travel up Charles Street for either the lunch or dinner option and enjoy the beautiful decor while savoring your meal (904 N. Charles St.; 410-385-9946).
Pazo Restaurant: The ambiance in this Harbor East tapas restaurant combined with its massive cocktail list makes it worthy of a special trip in our eyes. Separated into categories such as “fun, fruity, easy” and “floral, herbs, spice” you are sure to find a great match (or two) for the dinner menu (1425 Aliceanna St. Suite 301; 410-534-7296).
Ryleigh’s Oyster Bar: Dinner at this Fed Hill locale includes a mix of fresh seafood options, salads, and steaks. The expansive drink menu includes one of the city’s largest selections of crushes, including our favorite, the Arnold Palmer — a must-try on your visit (36 E. Cross St.; 410-539-2093).
Salt Tavern: Restaurant Week provides the perfect opportunity to snag a table at this intimate Fells Point restaurant, which boasts a menu that has piqued the interest of many avid diners. The seasonal drink menu is worth splurging on, considering the money saved on the meal, or try a handful of very unique draft options for those who prefer beer (2127 E. Pratt St. 410-276-5480).
