Eat 2005

Posted 3/2/2005

Picking a restaurant can be tricky. There are just so many variables. What kind of food are you in the mood for? What dietary restrictions do you have to keep in mind? Do you want to dress up for a culinary event or schlep out in your sweatpants for sustenance? Fork or finger food? Whatever you’re yearning for, Baltimore, despite its sometimes lackluster culinary reputation, has a ton of eating options to choose from.

So this year we decided to eschew our usual cutesy themes and odd groupings for a straightforward alphabetical listing of nearly 200 area restaurants. Peppered throughout these pages we’ve also included some suggestions based on our particular culinary yens and curiosities—from vegetarian cafés and places where you can surf the ’net while eating to restaurants where you can listen to live music without getting indigestion.

Rebecca Alvania, Tom Breihan, Blake de Pastino, Gadi Dechter, Auriane de Rudder, Anna Ditkoff, Edward Ericson Jr., Sarah Estes, Lee Gardner, Michelle Gienow, Richard Gorelick, Eric Allen Hatch, Tim Hill, Bret McCabe, Christina Royster-Hemby, Christopher Skokna, Erin Sullivan, and Wendy Ward provided their gastronomic wisdom for Eat 2005. Laurence Bass, Gina Callahan, Auriane de Rudder, Sarah Estes, Ruth Reader, Peter Ryan, Dana Sambuco, and Jennifer Seiden checked the facts. Photos by Sam Holden grace the cover and the page you’re reading right now, Christopher Myers took the restaurant photos throughout, and Emily Flake did the li’l illustrations for our lists of suggestions. Special thanks to Summer Patton and the Z-man.
