Have a hankering for French food but aren't sure where to go? Wondering where to take your spouse for that special night out? Curious about Baltimore's bargain eateries -- are they really a bargain or just cheap?

This issue of our semi-annual Dining Out guide should help you out. We've taken the 10 most asked about categories of eating places, polled critics and foodies about which five restaurants have the top reputation in each category, and sent out our reviewers to see if the places live up to their reputations. We've also included a section on restaurants that have opened up since our last dining guide.

Our critics are Janice Baker (JB), Mary Corey (MC), Mike and Sheila Dresser (M&SD), Elizabeth Large (EL), Suzanne Loudermilk (SL), Karol Menzie (KM) and Lynn Williams (LW).
