  • Station North staple returns, recreating classic dishes for more modern palates

    Just about every community has its Chesapeake (1701 N. Charles St., 410-547-2760, thechesapeakebaltimore.com), a white-tablecloth place where Mom would order an Old-Fashioned and every plate came with a side of glistening buttered carrots and khaki-...
  • Labor Day ushers in the best beach time of the year

    Battling the end-of-summer blues? Here's my prescription: Head downy ocean, where Labor Day ushers in the best beach time of the year. Spend a September weekend (or three) enjoying the mellower crowds, the slanting sunlight, the summer-warmed surf, and...
  • "Your brand becomes known by your lowest common denominator. If a bad bottling gets to market, people won't give you a second chance."

    A stiff wind scruffs up the audio, and there's some telltale jumpiness of video shot with a smartphone, but Drew Baker's video blog from December 2009 is oddly captivating. "I'm currently sitting on the roof of my parents' house in Westminster, Maryland,"...
  • Drinking Disasters

    Most of us have lived through drinking disasters. Sometimes it's the drinks themselves that survive catastrophe. The Titanic was infamously launched in 1912 with an inadequate supply of lifeboats-and without a traditional christening of Champagne...

    HAMPDEN/REMINGTON
    13.5 Wine Bar 1117 W. 36th St., (410) 889-1064,13.5winebar.com $$, D, Out, 10 p.m. Yes, the star of this bar is the wine list, and man, it is a helluva wine list. But the gourmet snacks, pizzas, and entrees make for nice pairings. Alchemy 1011 W....
  • Best Cheap Good Wine

    3700 Gough St., dipasquales.com, (410) 276-6787 Even if you just ate before you came to Di Pasquale's, you'll want lunch when you walk in-the smell is near irresistible. Overcome your olfactory urges and navigate to the wine section, where the small...
  • Also featuring: 2012 Top Twelve Wines

    1. The Fork and Wrench (2322 Boston St., [443] 759-9360, theforkandwrench.com) The huge corner rowhouse on Boston Street that was once the Good Love, and more recently Pur Lounge, took a long time for the owners of F&W to finally get right, but get it...
  • Casual Foreman Wolf spot a welcome addition to Roland Park

    Johnny's (4800 Roland Ave., [410] 773-0777, johnnysdownstairs.com) is what Roland Park has been craving: a jolt of espresso in the morning to wash down a densely flavored but diminutive pastry; a juicy burger and milkshake, or soothing glass of wine at...
  • Liv2Eat skips the shortcuts

    Liv2Eat (1444 Light St., [443]449-7129, liv2eat.com) opened last November without much buzzy fanfare, which is a bit surprising considering its Twitter-friendly moniker. It may be that the restaurant's condensed name actually does the place a disservice....
  • The grape may never attain the cachet of cabernet sauvignon or pinot noir, but zin lovers enjoy celebrating quirkiness.

    Zinfandel devotees have the slightly off-kilter mindsets of perennial underdogs. Perhaps that's because their favorite grape, long considered an American original, has now been genetically identified with Italy's primitivo and a Croatian variety whose...
  • Tony Foreman dishes on his favorite places to eat and slams D.C. dining

    No one has had a bigger impact on Baltimore dining than restaurateurs Tony Foreman and partner (and ex-wife) Cindy Wolf. The Foreman-Wolf team currently have five restaurants in Baltimore-Petit Louis, Charleston, Pazo, Cinghiale, and the latest, opening...
  • . . . and hopefully better and cheaper, thanks to our guide to liquor stores

    Student Life and your parents will remind you ad nauseum to make smart decisions when you drink. And you should. But that doesn’t mean you have to be careless in your spending. A cursory search reveals that there are 431 (!) liquor stores, give or...
