Discover Downtown

The city of Baltimore knows crab, and a stop in the Downtown neighborhood wouldn't be complete without a visit to an authentic crab house. Crab is prepared nearly any way imaginable here, but if you have to pick just one, go for classic crab cakes, enjoyed with a pitcher of cold beer. If you're up for another seafood meal, try one of the many options for filets of fish, either blackened or sprinkled with Maryland's famous Old Bay seasoning. For a change from seafood, Downtown offers steakhouses aplenty. When the steaks are cut on-site, you know they're sure to be fresh. Elsewhere in this Baltimore neighborhood, farm-to-table meals with a strong emphasis on local vegetables will appeal to vegetarians and carnivores alike.
