When the food is striking enough to double as decoration, you know you’ve struck gold, which is one of the many reasons award-winning Ouzo Bay tops the charts when it comes to gourmet Greek cuisine in a trendy atmosphere. The cases of fresh-caught, whole fish on display accent the indoor dining room and the views of the water through floor-to-ceiling windows.

The low-key decor at Ikaros sets the stage for the costumed Murder Mystery Night special events hosted by the restaurant, which only add to the popularity of this Baltimore Greek cornerstone. Pre-purchased tickets include the show and a three-course meal, but whether or not dinner theater is your cup of tea, you can’t beat the classic Greek cuisine served at Ikaros.  

We Love Their: Baklava, Mousaka, Roasted Leg of Lamb
