Baltimore Dining

Best Outdoor Dining


Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive, (410) 889-3399,

John Shield’s award-winning Maryland cuisine notwithstanding, we go to Gertrude’s to walk off a meal at the Baltimore Museum of Art’s Janet and Alan Wurtzburger Sculpture Garden. Savor dinner, of course, linger over a drink, and pay the bill. Or pack a picnic lunch or dinner and set up on an empty patch of grass within the garden walls. The sculptures beckon. If you happen to dine during the long days of summer, you have nearly three acres and 34 sculptures to ponder before the gates close at dusk. Other times of year, when dinner might go past sunset, take in the handful of pieces located close to the restaurant. The summer months also bring the Jazz in the Sculpture Garden concerts, a lovely way to enjoy the garden, where pieces by such mid-century moderns like Alexander Calder, Max Bill, and Henry Moore fit naturally with the wafting strains of hard bop or straight-ahead jazz.
