Rec Pier Chophouse

Italian; Steak in Baltimore

If you peer through the Sagamore Pendry's archway windows from Thames St, it can appear that everyone in town is celebrating inside this rustically chic trattoria. And they very well may be. Savory steak, pasta and fish dishes are complemented by the vast windows, flattering lighting and general air of conviviality.

For small bites and easy conversation, get comfy in the lounge, which could double as Fells Point's clubby living room.

The restaurant closes for 30 minutes between 11am and 11:30am Monday through Friday.
