Destination dining: 16 On The Park

Listen to this article

Dinner with a view at 16 On The Park, high atop the newly opened Residence Inn Baltimore at Johns Hopkins Medical Campus. Take the express elevator to the top floor, sixteen of course, not only offers up the great views of the city, the bar/dining room is filled with nooks and crannies for comfortable seating both indoors and outdoors.

The restaurant is American themed, seafood-focused. A holiday party afforded me an opportunity to indulge in many offerings inclusive of their seafood tower: lobster, oysters, shrimp, tuna poke and lump crabmeat. I was hard pressed to have to share this, but I did.

The deviled eggs with lobster, the Maryland crab sliders, the charcuterie board with cheese, flatbreads, burgers and an outstanding, yes, I said outstanding flat iron steak (prime Wagyu) were all winners. From that experience, I would go back for dinner: that flat iron steak is calling my name. Even on that cold night, we all enjoyed hot toddies on the patio, taking in downtown Baltimore’s vista.

For those of you who want something more than a diet coke, the bar offers local craft beer on tap, plenty of wines by the glass and a unique selection of house cocktails.

There are sufficient TV screens for watching sports and a really nice looking bar filled with Johns Hopkins Hospital staff. I can still hear my Jewish mother saying, “You should marry a doctor!” Hint; hint to all the singles out there where to go for happy hour. If you are driving, there is valet parking.

Put 16 On The Park on your “Where to Dine list.”
