Baltimore next Friday (9/16) - Best food we can find?

Dave MP | Sep 8, 2011 09:13 AM

Hi Baltimore hounds,

I am visiting next week from Boston, meeting a friend who lives in San Francisco. We're trying to decide where to eat on Friday night - we want to have a great meal together. We are not very particular about anything aside from the food (so, we could be equally happy at a hole-in-the-wall taqueria or at a white tablecloth place with $25-30 meals).....but ideally, I'd like to find a place where after our meal, we think to ourselves: "Wow, that was amazing food, and we couldn't have found anything like that in Boston or San Francisco." So basically, some sort of Baltimore flair would be great, or just a really great version of whatever we are eating.

Some ideas that have come up so far:

1) Woodberry Kitchen, Brewer's Art, Wine Market - All of these places look good, and are at the top edge of our budget probably - wouldn't want to go any more expensive than this. Will any of these fit the bill? Other similar places to this?

2) Grace Garden Chinese - Menu looks quite interesting, and we both love Chinese food. The fish noodles sound great, and unlike most things I can find in Boston (not sure about SF). Maybe we wouldn't be able to try enough things if it's just the two of us though?

3) Golden West Cafe - A friend recommended this, seems more casual but maybe still pretty good. Thoughts?

If anyone has good ideas for a 2 part plan, then that could work too....i.e. Go to place x for your meal, then head to place y for dessert or drinks....

We will be staying at BWI airport, and we will have a car. We're willing to go anywhere within a 25 minute radius of BWI airport, so this could mean we end up in the suburbs or countryside or in the city - although granted we will be leaving BWI area around 6:30 or 7:00 pm so traffic could still be an issue, depending?

Let us know if you have any ideas for our food adventure! Thanks a lot!
