Best Putting On Airs

City Paper

1 E. Chase St., (410) 347-0880,

There’s little doubt the 13th Floor high atop the old Belvedere Hotel has one of the best views in the city. But is a dress code really necessary to get up there? Short answer: no. So we were a bit surprised when we showed up in a navy-and-white striped T-shirt and khaki pants and were turned away because we didn’t have the proper attire. Who the fuck do you think you are, 13th Floor? Hell, not even The Prime Rib enforces a dress code anymore. 13th Floor, we’ve eaten at The Prime Rib. We know The Prime Rib. The Prime Rib is a friend of ours. 13th Floor, you’re no Prime Rib.
