Was expecting something similar to the one sold at Matthews Pizza in Highlandtown... now that's a crab pizza). It was a spur of the moment visit though. I've also read good things about Bohemia Cafe.
The whole town would be a nice place to spend an anniversary- especially in the spring. Which I might do, this year. They've got some interesting bed & breakfasts housed in fantastic early 19th century buildings on Bohemia Avenue.
Amazingly I've never been to Matthews, not that I can remember anyway, but I used to make crab pizza at a restaurant on the shore I worked at for a while. All that imperial sauce, good lump crab, mounds of cheese and a bunch of old bay? What's not to like? I can't tell you how often I "mistakenly" made an extra for the kitchen guys to enjoy.
Bayard is really good for special occasions. Big windows looking out at the canal and bridge, outside seating when it's nice.
