On its web site, Joung Kak describes itself as “charming and strong . . . an iron pot full of delightful and exciting foods.” This actually rather neatly describes Joung Kak's house specialty: do-it-yourself tabletop grilling. The accommodating staff brings a brazier of glowing wood coals to your booth and provides a platter of tidbits for grilling thereon plus another piled with garnishes. (The fearless may want to go with the full Joung Kak experience, featuring slices of tripe, beef tendons, and liver, but maybe it's best to begin with short ribs and sliced tenderloin.) Don't worry, they stick around to show you what to do, and which garnishes go with what grilled viand. Karaoke every night after 8, and Joung Kak serves until 4 a.m.
Seafood at L.P. Steamers tends to fall into one of three categories: raw, steamed, or deep fried. It's a simple menu; basically, you pick your crustacean and then choose how you want it cooked. You can hit the trifecta by ordering, say, the fried sampler platter, a rewarding mountain of clam strips, shrimp, oysters, a codfish cake, fries, and scallops topped off with a crab cake. Follow that with a dozen clams or oysters from the raw bar, and then a pound of steamed shrimp. But try also to save a smidgen of room for the exemplary Maryland and cream of crab soups, and the stuffed fried soft crab if it's available. In short, if it's seafood at L.P. Steamers, it's going to be good.
"A neighborhood favorite returns and picks up more or less where it left off, serving exemplary pub grub faves (e.g. juicy hamburger made from local beef on a brioche-style bun) in a bustling causal environment."
Mobtown's oldest sushi purveyors have two full-service restaurants: in a downtown townhouse and on the water in Fells Point. The view's better in Fells, but parking is much easier downtown; the service and sushi are great at both. Take off your shoes, fold your legs under a low table, and let the clean flavors of raw fish rid you of the nasty. People say the tempura is good, and there are all manner of complicated rolls on the menu, if you're into that sort of thing, but with seafood this fresh, why spoil it? Just chase the yellowtail with sake, and then order some more yellowtail.

Vino Rosina's inventive menu offers dishes like a 16-legged burger made from beef, bison, pork, and lamb, and a richer-than-rich rabbit lasagna. A scary-smart wine list and personable service only add to the glow.
