Best Raw Bar

Faidley Seafood

203 N. Paca St., (410) 727-4898,

Hitting the small square raw bar located in the center of Faidley’s fish market and carryout counter at Lexington Market can feel like popping into a local pub in a London neighborhood. You’re going to stand shoulder to shoulder with all stripes of life—law or med school students and faculty, downtown office workers on lunch, people stopping in from the surrounding neighborhoods, pre-gameday O’s fans during the summer, and the occasional alt-weekly journalists fleeing the desk. Once you elbow up, order the quantity of your bivalve of choice—we dig the oysters—request a can of beer, and then strike up a friendly conversation with your neighbor, because it’s the civilized thing to do.
