Best Shrimp Salad Sandwich: The Local Oyster

520 Park Ave., (844) 748-2537,

Crabs may get all the glory here in Baltimore, but if done right, shrimp also delivers your crustacean fix, and without breaking the bank. And while the Local Oyster may be known for its raw bar, you’d be remiss to sleep on their shrimp salad sandwich. Simply presented in a buttered and griddled potato bun, the shrimp are cooked perfectly to give each piece a snappy bite. But what really sets the sandwich apart from others in the city is in the dressing: It has the lightest touch of mayo mixed with vinegar and Old Bay. Every time we finish one we consider ordering seconds instantly.
