Rec Pier Chop House

1715 Thames St, Baltimore, MD 21231

City/County | Baltimore City
Neighborhood | Fells Point
Cuisine | Italian

Baltimoreans usually take a special pride in rooting for hometown chefs, but New York restaurateur/Michelin-starred chef Andrew Carmellini has become a fast favorite in Fells Point as a result of his gleaming Italian rosticceria serving modern Italian cuisine. The excitement over whatever you order——from prime steaks and chops to house-made pastas——will likely be replaced by F.O.M.O. as the dishes that you didn’t order come out of the kitchen and breeze past your table. First-timers should go for the linguini with Maryland crab and the very best Caesar salad in town. (Ask for Miles to make it.) Whatever you order, you’ll be happy with your dining decisions and vow to return.
