"Turkish and Mediterranean restaurant open daily for lunch, dinner and late night fare. Offering the best fresh healthy options as well as vegan menus"
A work-in-progress worth watching. The kitchen here can soar: A pistachio-encrusted rack of lamb is stellar, as is a poblano-encrusted chicken breast. If you had a magic wand, though, you'd do something about the general ambiance, which was a bit stiff when we last visited. The cool-cat downstairs bar has caught on and may buoy up the dining potential.
"A new cafe opened in Overlea/Fullerton in the Beltway Plaza just south of the beltway on Belair Road. The Charm City Cafe serves the best sandwiches and panini's in the area. There is an exciting and creative menu that includes great soups and Zeke's cofee. It's locally roasted and better than the routine chain stores. Try the Canton Smoke, it includes smoked turkey, cheddar cheese, homemade corn salsa, avacado, tomato, and homemade chipotle mayo. The portions are more than generous. The cafe offers desserts, specialty coffee drinks and breakfast for the early risers. Free Wi-Fi is available. Catering is also available. Rent the meeting room in the back or the entire cafe for your business or staff meeting, home show, seminmar or club meeting or birthday party."
"Wine shop where you can enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail at the bar or outside. In addition to wine, choose from a unique selection of gourmet artisan cheeses, savory snacks, specialty brews, spirits and accessories. In Store Tastings every Tuesday $25 per person."
The folks behind Little Italy's Aldo's offer something for everyone here in a stylish suburban setting: Mandarin duck rolls, entrèe salads, panini, shareable pizzas, deep-fried sea bass, and a terrific burger with lovely, lovely Gorgonzola. The fish of the day arrives either oven-roasted or Hong Kong style (whole and deep-fried).
At Corks the wine list is every bit as important as the dinner menu (where entrée descriptions are accompanied by specific wine recommendations). The owners are wine fanatics who search out vintages both excellent and obscure and then craft a seasonal menu to complement their wine finds. We love that many wines are available by the glass, allowing each course to have its own appropriate quaff. The food is intelligent but fun New American, with standout dishes like a duck breast with watercress salad and mission fig tartlet. Attention to detail is evident in everything that Corks does, from smoking its own trout to removing menu items when ingredients do not meet the chef's demands for excellence.
"Innovative American, neighborhood gourmet, naturally elegant venue with a friendly, welcoming staff and an award-winning, five-star chef who tries to use as much local and organic product as possible. Basement atmosphere in wonderful Hampden, brightened by large photos of local produce in historic Hampden Theater. Try the crab soup at lunch with the turkey Rachel sandwich. At dinner, menus change regularly. Ask your server for the freshest recommendations."
Eastern House is thoroughly and enjoyably old school in the sadly fading tradition of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink restaurants, with broad menus encompassing everything from steaks to seafood to pasta to baked ham with pineapple rings. As a bonus, Greek dishes like pastitsio and moussaka are available and worthy. However, classic taste treats like mushroom caps stuffed with crab imperial, oyster stew, and prime rib of beef au jus are not just best bets but get-'em-while-you-can artifacts of American cuisine. Eastern House offers an unbeatable special theme menu each weeknight (our favorite is Thursday, International Night, featuring sour beef with dumplings) where entrées with veggies and salad are $8.95.
Award wining restaurant featuring an eclectic mix of New American and French Cuisine. Menu changes monthly ala carte options and a fabulous prix fixe menu with wine suggestions. Ideal for business meetings, social gatherings or weddings.

Located in the snug dining room of 4 East Madison Inn, Feast offers homey, sustainably sourced comfort food with a gourmet twist and sweet service. Desserts prompt a "just like Mom used to make" thumbs up.
This perennially pretty but historically capsizing street-level restaurant has apparently finally been made seaworthy by the current crew. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a fancy hotel atmosphere, with a casual menu. Call for weekly specials, and keep in mind when visiting nearby museums.
With the some of the best Maryland crab soup anywhere, Gertrude's is the spot for Free State foodies, thanks to celebrity chef John Shields' artfully prepared seasonal menu, which is heavy on the seafood and easy on the eyes. The build-your-own entrées are popular here, as are the gorgeous crab cakes. Rivaling the food for tasteful flair is the outdoor patio, which overlooks the Baltimore Museum of Art's meandering sculpture garden. A perfect place to impress out-of-towners without breaking the bank; also ideal for a quiet lunch among the academic cognoscenti of adjacent Johns Hopkins University.
It's tough to nail down a place as eclectic as Golden West Café. The place where New Mexico meets the Far East has a whole lot of thrift-store paintings on the walls and menus that arrive in old record album covers, with food that ranges from Frito pie to warm Vietnamese noodle salad (aka the Mental Oriental). Weekend breakfast-time waits can be long, but are worth it--the kitchen churns out righteous huevos rancheros and hot cakes (three crucial words: real maple syrup), though our perennial favorite is the blueberry Bismarck. (“If butter offends you, do not order this,” the menu intones.) Lunch and dinner bring burgers, green chile soup, and other Southwestern treats, plus amazing homemade layer cake for dessert. Best of all, the Golden West's addition of a bar means, at long last, margaritas with that quesadilla.
Vegetarianism gets a first-class venue in this sophisticated Howard County bistro, a love project from the folks behind the (almost) adjacent Roots Market. Artisinal cheese plates and nightly specials which exhibit more flair than the standard menu.
This committed, urbane Canton restaurant deploys a comfortable but stylish date-place vibe, an affordable wine list, and well-rehearsed bistro dishes like pan-seared pecan-encrusted trout, blackened beef salad, and lamb brined and sauteed with honey, grapes, and feta. Regulars avoid the packed half-price entree night on Wednesday, a victim of its own success. Impromptu trivia games erupt at the street-level wine bar, home of the self-proclaimed "Baltimore's longest happy hour" and a favorite retreat for more settled Cantonites.
No matter how many years we have been going to Henninger's, we always feel like we're being let in on a local dining secret when we walk in. Maybe it's because the scruffy front bar belies the elegant food therein, or the fact that the place is in a quiet back corner of Upper Fells Point. Henninger's food is ambitious and always seems to have a trick up its sleeve--like the menu-staple fried oysters, which arrive here on a bed of wilted lettuce in a delicious Pernod cream sauce. We're willing to ride along on fun fare like Henninger's Fighting Fish, a tempura-fried catch of the day with Hong Kong-style vegetables and sticky rice, but the menu also satisfies the more traditional diner with crab cakes and filet mignon (though that comes wrapped in applewood bacon with citrus-sweet potato mash.)
