Sometimes all you want is some steaming soup, a hearty sandwich and an honest cup of coffee. At such times, Charmington's in Remington is just the spot.
Situated in the first floor of the old H.F. Miller and Son Tin Box and Can Manufacturing Plant ...

The crouton in Marie Louise Bistro's duck salad became key evidence in a mystery that, if anything, made remarkable lunch fare that much more intriguing.
12:40 p.m. The bistro has four outdoor tables we passed on because of the heat. The door opens to...

The Kohilas family has been operating Ikaros at the same Greektown address since 1969. That's a very long run for any restaurant, especially a family-owned and -operated establishment. Ikaros is truly beloved by its patrons, who loudly sing the praises of...

Forty-five minutes into the one-hour drive from Baltimore to Cafe Tuscany in Westminster, I'm cursing my editor. With all of the restaurants in Baltimore, why is it necessary to go this far out for Italian food? "This place better be worth it," I said...

As much as I try to use this feature to raise Dining@Large to a loftier level of discourse, you just knew I had to make the following the Comment of the Week. ELWelcome to the Waddle Inn where we deep......

I'm not sure how much difference a change of chefs makes to a successful restaurant. No matter how talented the new man in the kitchen is, the owners will want to stick with what's been working. In the case of Kali's Court, that's been very fresh fish and...
