Romantic Restaurants in Baltimore

By

Few things are as romantic as great food and wine. Baltimore has a host of romantic restaurants perfect for a special occasion (like Valentine's Day) or just an ordinary night out with your sweetie.

 

Aldo's

Little Italy
306 S. High St.
410-727-0700

Dine in a luxurious palazzo-like setting enjoying dishes made with organic and often local ingredients. While Aldo's describes its offerings as "southern-influenced regional Italian cuisine," look for a lot more than pastas doused red sauce. The house's signature dish is foie gras-wrapped tournedos Rossini with wild mushroom sauce.

B&O Brasserie

Mount Vernon
2 N. Charles St.
443-692-6172

Located in the snazzy new Hotel Monaco, B&O is a stylish space with food that follows suit. The restaurant's menu is wide-ranging and well executed. With a selection of pizzas, seafood, beef, and chicken, and inventive cocktails, the B&O is a classy, comfortable, yet not crusty destination for food-lovers everywhere.
