Top ten over-rated restaurants in Baltimore

Demographics plays a huge part in any city's food scene, be it actual population or metro-area. DC is a draw for the educated and international elite, while Baltimore, beyond JHU Medical isn't really pulling in the big fish and has one the highest high-school drop out rates in the country. The sophistication and willingness of the population to spend time and money exploring new restaurants is a huge factor. D.C. probably does have more space dedicated to restaurants, but how much of that space is devoted to Lake Trout?
