My brother has business in Baltimore (3-13 to 3-16) and I tagged along for a long weekend.
We got a very good deal on hotels thru priceline right beside Oriole Park at Camden Yards and in downtown DC. Friday while he was at the Coast Guard Office I went to the ESPN Zone to watch some ACC hoops.
That evening we did some bar-hopping at the Inner Harbor and Fells Point. Fells Point is a great area for walking from pub to pub and has some nice looking restaurants. Last year I ate at One-Eyed Mikes. We went by and the bar was so crowded we moved on.
We ended up at a couple of bars but this was our favorite....The Cat's Eye.
Later we walked toward the water and ended up at Shuckers for dinner because the bar was fun and they had plenty of TVs showing the conference tournament games. Our server was great and the drinks were good. We really enjoyed Shuckers.
We started with some oysters rockafeller. They were good but not great.
The dinners on the other hand were outstanding. I had the crab stuffed shrimp. I was more of a shrimp covered in crab dip. It was delicious.
My brother had blackened tuna topped with crab meat. It was excellent also.
Saturday morning before leaving for DC I told him we had to have brunch/lunch at Lexington Market. I love this place.
My brother is a fishing addict and loved looking at all the seafood displys.
We ended up at Faidley's. All the pictures were from Faidley's but you can get just about anything to eat (cooked or not) at Lexington Market. It's a very cool place. Some people are a little leary of the neighborhood but I've never had any problems.
We started off with some oysters. They were large, cold, salty and tasty.
Actually while I was getting these my brother ordered the other food and started eating his fish sandwich before I could get a picture. I got the crabcake which was as delicious as I remembered.
Later after walking around some we went back to Faidley's. We kept seeing steakfish. Since neither of us had ever heard about a steakfish we had to try one. Google later taught me that steakfish is white hake. Either way it was delicious. Very white meat and cooked perfectly.
After Lexington Market we set off for Saturday night in DC. Monuments, Museums and Meat coming.....
Right now my Carolina Hurricanes are getting ready to play so I'll finish later..
