A Baltimore Baby goes Home

Overview

Quote:
Spend the days at the harbor, soaking up the sun and people watching. At night, catch an O's game if you are lucky enough to be in town for one or visit one of the great clubs. With the kids the Science Center and Aquarium are must sees.Quick Tips: Stop by to see the street performers that do their thing in the courtyard between the two harborplace pavilions; they are usually the best entertainment in town.Best Way To Get Around: The water taxi is a sure winner when the weather is nice.

You can expect a wait on the weekends, so cozy up to the stylish bar and sample one of the speciality martinis or a local brew while you wait. The menu is mostly standard seafood fare but is prepared and served with an artistic flair. The portions are sizeable and the desserts we sampled were excellent. The wine list was a bit disappointing, but otherwise, a great dining experience. One word of caution. Last time we dined outside on a warm spring day because the temperature inside the restaurant was frightfully warm. Outside was lovely until the sun started to go behind the trees.
