It sure didn't look like a restaurant from the outside. There was no printed menu, and he kept the front door locked. If you were a regular customer, you knew to ring the buzzer to get in. And for nearly four decades, until it closed in 2008, Morris Martick's Restaurant Francais was the best French restaurant in Baltimore. Longtime patrons still dream of his sweet potato soup and bouillabaisse.
