Taking your client or partners out for a business meal is a common occurrence. If the establishment is licensed properly then you are probably safe from getting them food poisoning.
Known originally for its shipping port, Baltimore has changed and developed over the years into a major industrial city and eventually a place with a diversified economy. Of course, Baltimore hasn't forgotten its roots as a center for the fishing and crabbing industry with major supplies of Chesapeake Bay soft shelled crab running through the city daily. Baltimore entrepreneurs will find a relatively easy time getting needed licenses and permits. Thanks to a straightforward, centralized state government, Baltimore businesses have fairly simple requirements, especially compared to other cities and states in the region.
