100 things we love about Baltimore [Pictures]
A moody tavern. An extraordinary cocktail. The easy lapping of bay water against the banks of the Inner Harbor. Duckpin lanes. Old Bay. Art in an otherwise empty storefront. For all of these things, and for so many more, people love Baltimore. People feel how they feel about this place for their own reasons. It's personal and not necessarily explainable. Something between them and the city. But in the spirit of sharing the love, we asked some of the city's best-known personalities to reveal something that makes them fall for Baltimore. Take this list as personal suggestions, from one neighbor to another.

Henry Wong: Zhongshan Restaurant( Colby Ware, Baltimore Sun / February 22, 2011 )
Henry Wong, owner of An die Musik
"I have taken a lot of musicians to Zhongshan Restaurant on Park Avenue, like [former Baltimore Symphony music director] Yuri Temirkanov, [pianists] Lang Lang and Yundi Li, because the food is authentic Chinese and the price is right. I really enjoy the Szechuan-style hot pot there. It's one of the best hot pot meals I've ever had. It's very spicy, but I love it. I like to torture myself eating something that hot. Park Avenue may not be much of a location, but in a lot of towns good ethnic restaurants are located in places like that." 323 Park Ave. | 410-223-1881 | zhongshanrestaurant.com
