Chef Timothy Dean of Prime Steakhouse says he loves the history of Fell's Point, its walkability and its potential for development. He also loves its diversity.

"I'm a French-trained, African American chef working in a Spanish neighborhood doing French food," he says to prove the point.

Eat and Drink

For a Sunday brunch he heads to Blue Moon on Aliceanna for the "freshness and creativity" of the menu, which runs the gamut from fluffy French toast to Maryland crab Benedict. For a Friday night dinner he gravitates to Meli Patisserie & Bistro on Thames or to The Black Olive on S. Bond for the "freshness of the fish. You pick out what you want and they filet it right at your table and cook it for you."

Happy hour will find Dean at One-Eyed Mike's on S. Bond, which "has a lot of lively people and is old school it's been there forever." And to impress, Dean will take a date to Pazo on Aliceanna for its "nice, lounge atmosphere and lively open kitchen."


Dean goes to Free Soulz boutique on Fleet St. for cool threads at a great price. "They have a lot of contemporary stuff that I like, including jeans that look just like True Religion but aren't as expensive." Connoisseurs of that style can find clothes and shoes by Compete, Doctrine, Maison Bibliotheque, Nike and Radii, to name just a few brands.

For a unique, personalized piece of art, Dean urges pet-lovers to head to Paw Portraits on Bank St., where artist Rick Ragan will craft a portrait of their dog, cat, horse, bird, or what-have-you from a few photos and a description of the animal's personality. Dean commissioned a likeness of his miniature schnauzer, which is, obviously, guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind.
