One expects Italian restaurants to be romantic, and this Little Italy favorite certainly delivers. Dalesio's Of Little Italy's intimate dinning rooms are candle-lit and filled with fresh flowers, and the outdoor balcony seating is a near perfect setting for romance. The menu features many low-calorie and low-cholesterol entrées, like grilled shrimp and penne piemontese, which are perfectly healthy, yet still pack enough flavor to be worthy of Little Italy.
This nightspot offers a breathtaking view of the city from the top floor of the old Belvedere Hotel. Settle in for happy hour and watch the dusk settle over the city as its lights gradually begin to twinkle on. The calm won't last much past 9pm though. That's when local dance bands take the stage, the disco ball begins to swirl and the club transforms into a slightly silly and thoroughly retro dance party. The 13th Floor also serves excellent bar food, including a small selection of delicious desserts.
Ethel's Creole Kitchen is a two-storeyed Cajun and Creole restaurant that has seating arrangements outside and also on the rooftop. From the outside, it gives an impression of a European bungalow and yellow and black colored walls and the plants adorning the railings only add credibility to the said impression. Once inside, you will come across a neatly arranged row of tables giving this place a pleasant atmosphere. The yellow walls with paintings and bright lightings give this eatery a welcoming feel, adding to its charm. However, it is not only the overall decor but also the promise of serving authentic Cajun and Creole food that brings people to Ethel's Creole Kitchen. Some of the restaurant's highlights include delicacies such as Nola Chicken, Creole Shrimp Boat, Fried Chesapeake Oysters, Mom's Crabcakes, Slow Roasted Baby Back Ribs and many more. However, the one recipe that shouldn't be missed here is the Jambalaya, a dish which was described by The Baltimore Sun as one of the city's finest single-dish meals.

With its plush interiors, Topside is a rooftop restaurant that overlooks the Mount Vernon neighborhood. The eatery here consists of a bar right in the center which is surrounded by chairs facing the window.

The wooden decor and the seating arrangements give this place a modern upscale vibe. Topside is known for its finely curated list of craft beers that includes Thirstay (credited to Peabody Heights Brewery, one of Baltimore's earliest breweries).
