Housed in a historic Beaux Arts building that once served as the headquarters of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, B&O provides a relaxed-yet-elegant atmosphere in which to enjoy contemporary American fare. While our name gives a nod to the gilded age of the railroad, the locally sourced, seasonal food is definitely up to the minute. The buzzing happy hour and fantastic craft-cocktail program make B&O one of the city’s favorite hangouts.
