Pictures: Baltimore's 50 best restaurants 2010
>>See the 100 best Baltimore-area restaurants 2011
I made last-minute adjustments to the ranking of this list as I was writing up the captions for this photo gallery. My gut guided me. I'd consult my memories, the online menus, and the reviews I wrote about them (or Elizabeth Large wrote).
When I found myself thinking, "I want to go there now," that told me something. When I didn't get that feeling, it told me I had ranked a restaurant too highly. Nothing on the list slid obviously into position. This juggling was a barrel of monkeys compared to the decision of which restaurants to include on the list. I stand by what I've come up with.

2. Charleston( Lloyd Fox, Baltimore Sun / February 19, 2010 )
If you arrive with your spirit willing and your taste buds ready, if you fully commit yourself to the experience, you'll be rewarded. Cindy Wolf's Charleston, the Foreman-Wolf flagship, delivers great pleasure for those who come looking for it.
