We’ve all been there, when the backseats of our cars have become graveyards of rest stop candy bar wrappers, convenience store soda bottles, and fast food burger boxes. Why? To stay on our travel schedules, of course. But there are times when it’s the meal that matters, when the little things – you know, little things like good food, prompt and friendly service, and the right atmosphere – are especially important. If you find yourself in Fort Wayne, Indiana, looking for those little things in a dining experience, visit BakerStreet, located on North Clinton Street. From start to finish, appetizer to dessert, they do everything right.  

BakerStreet has a varied menu, including steak, chicken, pork, and seafood dishes (I even managed to have all four once in a single night); a solid wine list; and a fine assortment of desserts (I’m partial to the key lime pie and Bananas Foster, which is prepared tableside). Regardless of the dish you order, you’re going to enjoy it.  

The service is impeccable. Unique to BakerStreet, at least in my experience, is that the servers want to get to know you. They ask you your name. They remember your name. It’s a nice touch that never comes off as intrusive.  

Visitors to Fort Wayne wouldn’t know this, but BakerStreet is located in a building that once housed a chain pizza restaurant. Any remnants of pepperoni and breadsticks have long since vanished, though, making way for an intimate and unpretentious atmosphere. On our last visit, the table at which we were seated was one of the finest we’ve had in any restaurant.  

Just remember, BakerStreet isn’t the kind of restaurant you shoehorn in to your itinerary; it’s the kind you make room for.
