It seemed at first as if Mare Nostrum (716 S. Broadway,  327 6173, marenostrumbaltimore.com), the new Turkish restaurant with a Latin name in Fells Point, might make this mistake. The website lavishly describes the paintings and amethyst crystals that decorate the long, narrow space. When we arrived, we were told it was BYOB, which no one mentioned when we called for the reservation. The server brought the cold meze cart (like a dim sum cart) up to our table—and proceeded to disappear. We felt like we couldn't order or leave to get some beer. And the meze on the cart didn't look too appetizing, so I spent a few minutes noticing that the pleasant surroundings were far more ordinary and simple than the website let on. The space is defined by the cool white marble tabletops, the dark, unfinished wooden walls, and a vaguely nautical theme. Everything was simple and beautiful—except for the drop ceilings but, hey, what can you do?
