But the ingredients that made Dizzy Issie's a Baltimore corner-bar institution remain in place. Elaine Stevens, one of the city's warmest hosts, is still here, but now as manager, and the new owner is her sister-in-law, Darlene Basta. There's still a noisy crowd of regulars, most of them neighborhood types, gathered at the bar, and the dining-room crowd is still the diverse gang of regulars - artisans, Roland Parkers, college students and hipsterbillies. The cosmetic changes to the dining room haven't made it any less homey and, yes, quirky. The Dizz can still proudly call itself a corner bar. And most customers would rather wait for a table downstairs than sit in the upstairs dining room, nice as it is.
