While my username may belie the request for something more upscale, I am a former Charm City-er coming back for a wedding and I want to gather some old friends at a fun restaurant downtown with great food the night before. I only come back periodically so if there is something that has opened in the past year or so that is a 'must try', please let me know!!
Looking for something perhaps Brewer's Art-esque in the sense that there is great food, but is not too stuffy and can accomodate a fair size group (10 - 15) without feeling cramped. Preferably in the surrounding 'local neighborhoods' (read Mt Vernon, Canton, Fed Hill etc - i.e. Not the Harbor).
Would love to hear how the restaurant scene has blossomed (I hope!) in my absence.
