Thanks again for all the great suggestions. We had our first great meal in Baltimore this past weekend thanks to your suggestions. We tried the Brewers Art and it did not disappoint. My husband had the buffalo short ribs which melted off the bone. I had the dumpling squash filled with rissoto, which was delicious but not as good as the short ribs. We both had an excellent cosmo which was greatly appreciated after a day at the hospital. On our way out of Baltimore we stopped at the Attman's Deli for some sandwiches, living in NY we consider ourselves deli snobs but we were thrilled with the corned beef, our only gripe was that the rye bread was a little too soft to hold up to the sandwich. Also that they had pork at the restaurant which is considered a unthinkable in NYC but all in all we would go back, it's right on our way out of the city. We had one lunch at the Lexington Market, a place that makes only turkey, with stuffing, real mashed pots and veg only $4.95, worth double the price I think for such a 'home cooked' meal.
Our one disappointment was a lunch at the John's Hopkins cafeteria which was terrible. Is the UM Hospital cafteria near John's Hopkins/Kennedy Kreiger area?
I've made a little booklet for myself with all your suggestons, I think I'll make a few copies for other families at the hospital. Thank you SO much for all your suggestions. We will be in Baltimore every weekend for the next few months so I hope to try many more of the recommended restaurants.
I have one additional question- my in-laws are coming to visit my daughter and my husband would like to take them for seafood. Does anyone have an opinion about "Legal Seafood" near the harbor? I would send them to Arthur Treachers :) but he loves them so he wants something nice.
