Alizée has gone from fusion to high-concept comfort food. The menu changes seasonally, but look for bistro inspired fare-- roasted chicke, lamb confit, rabbit-- all done with clever sides like parsnip oatmeal.
B is one of those neighborhood restaurants that feels like a well-kept secret even though it's been around for years. The ever-changing array of homemade ravioli and seasonal fare impresses.
Unpretentious and hearty fare predominate the menu at this casual restaurant, prettily landscaped within a north-county shopping center. Typically winning dish: scallops chinois, which alternates sizable bivalve mollusks with fresh orange slices, all in a zippy peanut dressing.

Split into halves--table service or order-at-the-counter--City Café serves all your coffee needs, as well as pastries and baked goods (including a fine pumpkin cookie in the fall). The menu ranges from fancy dinner items like cinnamon duck to lunch fare like the very good hamburger to hearty breakfasts, if you can manage to get up that early. Plus after a while they remember your coffee order when you walk in. And at 8 a.m. that's very important.
"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."
A decade and a half ago, before the word “Starbucks” had ever crossed Baltimore's collective lips, the original Donna's in Mount Vernon introduced this town to lattes and machiattos and hazelnut sodas. Donna's also helped make roasted vegetables, bread dipped in olive oil, and mesclun greens into ubiquitous '90s restaurant staples 'round these parts. It can only be a good thing that Donna's has expanded over the years, bringing to various corners of Baltimore a healthy, culinarily savvy menu of interesting salads (like Granny Smith apples, walnuts, and Gorgonzola) and deluxe sandwiches (after all these years we still heart Donna's pan bagna). Not to mention quite possibly the best bread pudding anywhere in the universe.
