#38 Henninger’s Tavern
#38 Henninger’s Tavern
Upper Fells Point

Henninger’s is still among Baltimore’s most romantic destinations, and Jayne and Kenny Vieth are the kind of hosts that give real meaning to the phrase “Charm City.”

French-influenced dishes like fried oysters in Pernod sauce and shellfish with linguine are entirely free of gimmicks; the bar, which is adjacent to the romantic dining room, is Baltimore’s version of the Round Table Room at the Algonquin, a lair for the city’s most opinionated and wittiest talkers.

You leave Henninger’s satisfied and smarter.
