Baltimore's premiere Harbor East restaurant Charleston is a 2013 Diners' Choice Award winner in OpenTable's "100 Best Restaurants in America," ranking an impressive No. 5 on the list.

It is in good company with other "Top 10 Best Restaurants," including St. Francis Winery & Vineyards in Santa Rosa, CA; Mama's Fish House in Paia, HI; and Halls Chophouse in Charleston, SC.

Chef Cindy Wolf, pictured, a James Beard Award nominee who co-owns the restaurant with Tony Forman, has been turning out award-winning fare at Charleston since it opened in 1997.

Charleston Facebook fans weighed in on the distinction with such comments as: "Tell me something I don't already know! Everyone, just go to Charleston one time and you'll understand why they were chosen" and "One of the absolute best."
