No, the absolute best come from the Presidium lakes.

There are some good fish in Baltimore, no doubt, but the Pike Place Fish Market laughs at your headline.

The side bar "trending" is interesting.

tl;dr -- can they get on with tank-growing good tuna, please?

By the time it gets here, tuna in particular *sucks*.  I mean, food around here tends to be pretty poor at best, but I have yet to have an even passable piece of tuna... it just can't be shipped, apparently.  (And if you disagree and think any B'more/Annapolis area tuna is good, you've never had fresh tuna.)  I miss some actually-delicious poke, sashimi and the like, dammit.  (Perhaps one last shot remains:  Anybody know where the Japanese embassy in DC buys theirs?)

That said:

Magorn: if you've never had Chesapeake bay Blue Crab you have literally never had crab worth eating


is on to something.  But, even there, freshness makes a -huge- difference.  If someone has had blue crab anywhere outside the region, I can understand, perhaps, if they were unimpressed and argue this point.  I'd certainly rather have a fresh pacific crab in San Francisco than a blue crab caught, chilled/frozen and flown out there.  Have it in a restaurant around B'more and it is so much better.  But, even better still, have it pulled directly out of the water, and tossed from the traps into a steamer immediately?  _Fantastic_.  Didn't expect as much difference as there was the first time I did it myself.

Pain in the ass to clean, though.  There's a reason crab cakes are expensive!

Have you tried Joss in Annapolis?

I've had sushi in LA, DC, NYC and Hawaii. Joss is hands-down the best.

According to the article, it's not really seafood. It's basementfood.

Baltimore can be deceptive when it comes to food. My wife and I walked into a place near Fells Point that looked nice, but everyone was dressed very causally so I wasnt too worried. Until we sat down. My first clue was when the waiter offered us four types of water and a free octopus appetizer. When I looked at the menu, appetizers started at 40 entrees were around 60 and up. We beat a hasty retreat.

Better still if you skip the restaurant altogether. The best crabs are had in somebody's backyard downy shore.

A friend of mine grew up on the water in Cambridge. They go out on the dingy, lay some pots, go back out a few hours later, haul in the pots, and steam 'em. The yearly July 4th get together is pretty much the only time I eat crabs (something something Subby's mom).
