Best Fancy Restaurant

B&O American Brasserie

2 N. Charles St., (443) 692-6172,

For a city with a serious blue-collar rep, Baltimore has a number of fancy restaurants, and pretty excellent ones at that. B&O American Brasserie gets the nod this year for its inventive American cuisine with a sense of experimentation—sea urchin aioli—and a focus on fresh and seasonal food. What impresses most about chef E. Michael Reidt is that his flavors never falter—start off with a specialty cocktail, then have one of the seafood starters or anything with watermelon in the summer, tuck into a filling and inventive entrée, and finish with a dessert worth overeating for. And the atmosphere is luxurious without being stuffy, making it ideal for a special night out.
