You’ll feel immediately at ease once you step inside Baltimore’s Charleston, a warm and inviting restaurant whose interior design is both elegant and cozy. Oranges, creams and reds dominate the color palette, most visible in the rust-colored, curved-back chairs surrounding the square and circular tables. These chairs also flank the salmon-hued banquette looping around the main dining room. You’ll find dark wood beams along the walls and recessed ceilings, accented by gold chandeliers and white, circular light fixtures. A mauve carpet with geometric highlights also does more than create a calming, homey environment — it also helps minimize sound in the romantic eatery. The restaurant — which is really organized into four separate nooks, including the bar area — also features a sort of rust-and-cream colored paisley pattern on the wall: you'll feel as though you’re eating in a refined Southern manse. If planning a trip to Baltimore, be sure to check out Charleston for a top-quality meal in a refined, upscale setting.
