Baltimore Earns a Spot on Zagat’s 2017 “30 Most Exciting Food Cities in America”


Baltimore City earns another spot on a national list, this time for the city’s dining options. Baltimore earned a #29 spot from Zagat’s survey of the “30 Most Exciting Food Cities for 2017.” Washington, DC did not make the Top 30.

In the words of Zagat, “From tony cocktail lounges and white tablecloth bistros to hipster beer bars and food halls, Charm City is on the rise.” It’s a mix of already award-winning restaurants mixed with some new Baltimore dining options getting attention. It not all just seafood, either.

“Here’s your lunch & dinner list if you’re making a day in Baltimore for home tours,” commented Gerard DiRuggiero, Principal Broker of UrbanLand Company. “There are extremely low housing prices on big urban homes that are worth a look to any investor-type home buyer, and now you’ve got great food being recognized by the gold standard in restaurant ratings. Housing prices and great food are ways DC simply can’t match up with Baltimore on. ”

Here’s the Baltimore City restaurants contributing to the national ranking and getting mentions by Zagat. Links go to what Zagat says about each venue.

What’s Zagat? Zagat was formed in 1979 at a dinner party with friends. During the meal, dinner guests were complaining about inaccurate restaurant reviews in the local major newspaper. Zagat was founded on the concept of taking a survey and collecting reviews through a user-generated content process. The “survey” quickly grew to over 200 amateur critics and today collects “quote-filled reviews” from passionate locals. Zagat is literally the ancestor to Yelp, UrbanSpoon and the rest of the major review engines.
