Think about reserving a table in this small below-ground insider's spot next Valentine's Day, or any other time you're planning a seduction. Chef Sonny Sweetman offers a fixed-price menu and just a handful of à la carte entrées and appetizers each evening. The building blocks are simple (salmon, grilled pork, filet mignon), but the dishes are lavish and beautifully constructed: phyllo-encrusted halibut, blue-crab-and-sweet-corn risotto, creamed savoy cabbage. Sharp service and a smart wine list round out your dining experience. Submit to the prix fixe and watch the web site for symphony-inspired special dinners.

There's hearty and wholesome fare for Olympian appetites at this casual and cavernous Greektown mainstay. Lamb, seafood, and crab cakes are the house specialties, and all of the ancient favorites are on tap--moussaka, spanakopita, dolmades, and pastitsio.
The silky smooth Afghan dishes you've come to love uptown at the Helmand--aushak, mantwo, boulawani--are yours for the ordering at this modest and very sunny downtown eat-in/carryout joint. Kebabs skewer expertly grilled meat, and the beloved kaddo (pan-fried baked baby pumpkin) is done justice. But go on weekends to avoid the business crowds.

Plus weekday lunch and weekend brunch buffets for that decidedly American pastime: all you can eat.
"Fresh innovative menu, custom designed catering, hand crafted desserts, an amazing wine program, artisan beers, inspiring brunch... all at Alchemy."
Unless you've been there, it's hard to grasp what distinguishes Aldo's from its neighboring Little Italy restaurants. A lot of it has to do with chef Aldo Vitale's craftsmanship and his insistence on using locally purveyed ingredients, and on how you swell you feel in the double rowhouses' various Italianate rooms, all of them crafted by Vitale himself. Regulars have their favorite tables, waiters, and dishes. Aim high and fat: The tournedos Rossini gilds a filet mignon with foie gras, black-truffle oil, porcini, and wild mushroom sauce.
You can get tater tots as an appetizer or alongside any of the well-crafted sandwiches in various states of loaded-ness. The menu ranges from bar food to standards to more ambitious entrees.
Gastropub housed in the lavish former bank across from the Hippodrome.
"The Set UP: Acoustic Guitar + Microphone.
Brief History: ashrf is a fusion of Middle Eastern & American cultures, merging Sudanese roots with his rock influence to craft an original and enjoyable sound. His music was labeled “Middle Eastern Alternative” by the Owings Mills Times.
He has performed since he was a young boy in Sudan, and began playing venues and events in the DC Tri-State area in 2003. He is always the one to call for original Songwriter Showcases, international festivals, and has been the featured artist at many musical events. Because of his simple set up, he is quick to begin on stage and easy on the ears.
His unique and captivating sound is always a crowd favorite. His many performances include the featured artist’s slot on the Fredrick County Public Access show called “Backstage Pass.” His cover of “Allergy” by ilyAIMY was played at a local college radio station in Tennessee. Poetic lyrics crafted into pentatonic scales provide the main ingredients for his music, and his falsetto is always the icing on his musical cake. All in all, he is an acoustic act not to be missed."

"There are quite a number of examples of bands and artists that have covered a Beatles album as a whole. Here’s a new addition to that category, being a classical guitar rendition of all the Sgt. Pepper songs, set in the same track listing as the original album. Instead of going for the easy way by picking the usual batch of guitar-friendly tunes, Croatia-born Krstic’s intention to try and re-interpret this classic Beatles album may be applauded with great enthusiasm. Although songs like Within You Without You or A Day In The Life are obvious choices to check on his talent and skills, his refined performances on all the tracks leave no doubt about that. He both ensures that all the original melodies remain quite well intact as well as takes in subtle melody snippets of his own, with versatile guitar playing - adding occasional Spanish flavours, an orchestral sound or a Third Man Theme-like sound in When I’m 64. Reportedly the first classical version of the Sgt. Pepper album – a hard act to follow?"
Beatles Unlimited Magazine, Issue 189, December 2006
