Luna Del Sea

For over 10 years, Luna Del Sea has been entertaining tourists and locals alike with fresh seafood and sizzling steaks. And the location is prime: right on Pratt St near Camden Yards, M&T Bank Stadium, the Convention Center, a good number of the major hotels in the downtown area, and so forth. If you're like us, you've noticed the place many times, but haven't been able to stop in, either because of traffic, time constraints, or the line out the door on a busy night (they do have a pretty nice outdoor seating area). But despite how fancy the establishment appears, the dress code is casual, so feel free to wear your Oriole's orange or Ravens camo. We happened to stop by after a phenomenal Orioles win one night, and checked out one of the specalities of the house -- crab cakes! Check out the review to see what we thought!

One of the great summertime pastimes is going to a baseball game.  Traditionally, stadium fare consists of peanuts, hot dogs and Cracker Jack.  Those times are in the past, and stadiums are providing more gourmet options.  So it should be no surprise that Oriole Park at Camden Yards would offer Baltimore's most famous treat:  crab cakes.  New for the 2011 season, the Orioles teamed up with a new food, beverage and retail partner to deliver locally-inspired cuisine.  The crab cakes were inspired by sampling more than 50 restaurants in the region.  How did they turn out?  Read on to find out!

Pratt Street Ale House is home to Oliver Breweries, Baltimore's longest-running brew pub. The original building was built back in 1888, having housed the Pratt Furniture Company until 1980, when a bar by the name of P.J. Circketts was established. In 1992, P.J.'s turned into the Wharf Rat. A year later, the brewery was created, and life has been good ever since! While their beers may be delicious, we really wanted to see if their food was equally as tasty. Read on to see how this story ferments!
