From Our Editors

In the dead of night in 1976, the Abi-Najm family boarded a cargo ship bringing only what they could carry; an escape from Civil War in Lebanon called for a quick getaway. They traveled across the ocean to safety in Arlington, Virginia, where they were able to open a small cafe in 1979. To save money, they changed the eatery?s name from ?Athenian Taverna? to ?Lebanese Taverna? so that they only had to update one word on the eatery?s marquee.

From these modest beginnings grew a series of eateries that today comprises of six cafes and four quick-service caf?s, all still operated by the Abi-Najm clan. One look at the menu explains the success: chicken shawarma, spicy hummus, lamb tartare?all Lebanese staples that helped the restaurant earn a spot on Northern Virginia magazine's list of 25 Iconic Eats. There's even kibbeh, or stuffed meatballs, which blend ground beef, lamb, almonds, and pine nuts into fried spheres suitable for felling miniature bowling pins on top of the table before entrees arrive. The decor is as striking as the cuisine; inside the Bethesda location, light filters through the colored glass lanterns that decorate the dining room.

Baltimore Restaurant Guide

When it comes to Baltimore dining, the famous blue crabs of the nearby Chesapeake Bay reign supreme. However, there is more to dining in Baltimore than crab, including local favorites such as the humble coddie and the mouth-watering pit beef. In recent years, Baltimore has grown into a rising star in the culinary world. Top chefs from around the world are putting down roots in this small city, creating impressive international cuisine and putting their own spin on classic Baltimore fare.

The popular Baltimore Inner Harbor features quality chain restaurants, but it is the surrounding neighborhoods where one can find Baltimore’s hottest culinary spots. Harbor East is home to the famed Charleston Restaurant, which serves sophisticated American food, such as its melt-in-your-mouth veal tenderloin. Try the fresh fish caught the same day at The Black Olive in Fell’s Point, considered one of the best Greek restaurants in the country.

Classic Baltimore food can be found further in the heart of the city. There is hot debate about where to get the best crab cake, but Faidley Seafood in Lexington Market is always on the list. The coddie, or codfish cake, is another local favorite. Seafood isn’t the only thing on the menu in the city. Baltimore is also known for pit beef: grilled top round that is charred on the outside but rare on the inside and sliced paper thin. Try it with spicy horseradish at Chaps, the most popular joint for pit beef in the city. For dessert, local bakeries sell the city’s famous Berger cookies. These buttery cookies with fudge topping have been around in the city for more than 125 years.

Whether looking for traditional local favorites or more innovative, international cuisine, Baltimore offers much more than one might expect from this small, but thoroughly charming city.
