My husband and I will be in Baltimore for a conference that includes both a Friday and a Saturday night. We're going to ditch the scheduled banquet in favor of eating out in Baltimore restaurants. Where should we eat?
Some pertinent information:
o We will be staying at a hotel in the general vicinity of the Inner Harbor, but we're willing to drive places. Please indicate whether the restaurant has valet parking or whether we'll have to find a street spot so we can plan driving time accordingly.
o We have no price restrictions. Sounds illogical but we'll be just as happy to pay top dollar for a fabulous experience as to have a fabulous experience at a local, lower-priced gem. The only common dominator is great food with appropriate service for the destination.
o We have few cuisine restrictions. We enjoy most cuisines but definitely shy away from incendiary hot food.
Left on my own, I would make reservations at Charleston and Cinghiale, but I'd appreciate recent information . Our last visit to Charleston happened a couple of years ago, and a search brings up nothing newer than posts from 2010. Cinghiale is appealing considering the princpals involved and the fact that we love Italian food, but I don't know the reality vs the expectation.
