Greek food--who knew? No greasy rotating column of anonymous gyro meat in this classy cultured pearl of a restaurant. Yes the food is Greek, but it's the food of a seaside gem on some tiny Aegean isle where dinner was swimming in the ocean only hours ago. Black Olive prides itself on using only truly fresh and organic ingredients, simply prepared to allow the food's own excellence to shine. Best bet is to select from the catch of the day, on ice by the kitchen. Have it grilled and served with the Black Olive's proprietary sauce that enhances both the sweetness and salinity of the exquisitely fresh fish. A little savory bread pudding (made with olive bread) on the side is also advised.
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.

One of the hidden treasures of Baltimore, this Seton Hill Italian-goods store is both deli and grocery. The deli menu includes a delicious prosciutto, mozzarella, and pesto sandwich, as well as a handful of other equally satisfying house sandwiches. In addition to the deli, they sell an assortment of Italian groceries at affordable prices so you can re-create the Trinacria experience in your own home. Watch out for those cookies displayed behind the counter; you won't be able to stop at a dozen.
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.
