Low Country Cuisine

Located on the waterfront in Harbor East, Charleston is often considered one of Baltimore’s finest restaurants. It boasts an imaginative menu influenced by a combination of French cuisine and the Low Country fare of South Carolina. Chef Cindy Wolf offers a tasting menu that changes daily and may include items such as rich lobster soup with arugula and curry oils, wild rockfish with lemon beurre blanc or grilled veal sweetbreads. Sommelier Tony Foreman curates a cellar of more than 600 wines, chosen to complement the cuisine. Fabric-padded walls and plush seating conjure the atmosphere of this restaurant’s namesake.
