West Baltimore is a huge section of the city notorious for violent and other drug-related crime, but also for its unique culture, endless streets of old Baltimore rowhouses with their marble stoops, and sprawling parklands.

  • The Roost (Lakeout or The Lake), 5275 Reisterstown Rd, +1 410 578-0232, [3]. 7AM-3AM usually. The Roost. Any visitor interested in trying Lake Trout should come here, as it is arguably the best in the city, and in the most inviting eatery. A giant portion of fish comes for $5, but the rest of the menu is hard to ignore—each entry is named after a prominent African-Americans (with the exception of "The Wire" and "John Waters"), and the long soul food menu makes few errors. $3-7.
