But noncrustacean shellfish are fine for you, yes? In that case, Eat Bertha's Mussels.
[Strictly speaking, I can lay greater claim to Chicago than to Bal-mer, but I couldn't keep my nose out.]

Thanks, Elsa! In fact, I love mussels, oysters, clams, you name it. Bertha's is a good start. Any other suggestions out there?

Bertha's is great--if you love tourists. The mussels have gone down hill in recent times.
The Helmand is great for reasonably priced Afghan food.
Oysters on the half shell are a good deal at Lexington Market. They're not bad at Cross Street Market as well.

Stop in at Tio Pepe at 10 East Franklin St. I worked there for 18 months, bar and dining room, when I was at JHU. Try the garlic shrimp apetizer, pallella, and chocolate souffle (not on the menu).
Also, there are some great places in Little Italy - especially Vacario's for desert.
Pretty good Irish grub at Mick O'Shea's. Great food and ambiance at 24-hour diner Paper Moon, right by the Homewood campus. Also agree with the previous poster on Helmand.

Unfortunately, one of the iconic Baltimore eateries is no more...

A great vegetarian place near Hopkins is One World Cafe: http://one-world-cafe.com/. They have espresso drinks and a bar, too. The best of all worlds!
I agree with the Little Italy recommendation.
Baltimore has a lot of great restaurants and neighborhoods. You'll eat well, don't worry!
