Press atlas restaurant group Baltimore The Bygone Maximon

Why A Visit To ‘Charm City’ — AKA Baltimore — Should Be On Your Radar This Year

In terms of dining (given that we are approaching Restaurant Week), Maximón is absolutely fabulous, an upscale Mexican/South American-inspired eatery with lots of flair and a dangerously delicious tequila-driven cocktail menu, which allows you to choose from classic, Mezcal and spicy options (we’re big fans of the Solamente with Olmeca Altos Plata tequila, pineapple, honey, ají amarillo and chamomile). The decor is predominantly stone, with wood and marble furniture, lush greenery and French doors that open up to the 125-seat exterior featuring a Spanish-style courtyard with fountains and a waterfront outdoor bar. There’s live performances and a tequila tasting room to boot. Don’t miss the ceviche, particularly the Mussels Escabeche with jalapeño, carrot, roasted fresno chile and red pepper purée and the plantain-crusted Crunchy Mahi Mahi tacos. Make sure to check out the Bygone, a Roaring 20s-inspired dinner and brunch spot on the 29th floor which offers some sexy, sassy fun along with panoramic views of of the city and historic Inner Harbor.
