Baltimore has its fair share of delectable eateries, however, it houses a short list of 5 star restaurants that can be classified as such. Thus, the restaurants that have made the high-rated list are the cream of the crop in the city.
The top pick, Charleston restaurant, is known for its acclaimed chef, its attentive service, its French-inspired/Charleston-inspired dishes, its extensive wine list, and its elegant decor. The restaurants 700+ labels wine list could occupy your evening on its own but then you'd miss out on an indulgent three to six course tasting menu designed for those with more discriminating palates.
Though not all of Baltimore's 5 star restaurants have extensive wine lists, a rating element of the traditional classification, they do offer top cuisine, diverse menus, ambiance and great service.
