Henninger’s Tavern

1812 Bank St., (410) 342-2172,

If the classic poster of a hirsute, nude Burt Reynolds stretched out on his side on top of a bearskin rug doesn’t put you in the mood, then nothing will. OK, we suspect that Henninger’s’ intimate atmosphere—with its small tables (perfect for whispering sweet nothings), low lighting, curious prints, paintings, and assorted gewgaws—will do the trick. And then there’s the menu, which could seem scattered but which we suspect derives its overarching theme from decadence: fried oysters in Pernod, rabbit sausage with apples and polenta, Cornish hen with gruyere-and-leek bread pudding, broiled whole fish served over jasmine rice, peanut butter pie, and lemon tartufo.
