local specialties in Baltimore?

Ruth Lafler | Oct 14, 2005 01:12 PM

I'm an SF hound who is going to be spending a couple of days next week in Baltimore. A fellow SF hound just told me that there's no worthwhile food in Baltimore, but I refuse to believe that!

Since there's a limit to how many crab cakes I can eat (are the local crabs even in season?), what other local specialties should I be looking out for and where can I find them? Since I'm not familiar with the area, its neighborhoods and landmarks, specific descriptions of where such places can be locate would be much appreciated. Restaurant recs would be great, but also bakeries, markets, delis, ice cream places -- anywhere that has great food, especially food I might not find in SF -- would be welcome.

I promise to post a report of how your recommendations worked out!
