It was incorrectly reported in yesterday's Live section that Profusions restaurant has closed. In fact, it has closed only for lunch and is still open for dinner.

The Sun regrets the errors.

Institution closes

The [owners] just didn't show up one day, so legally we don't know where it stands," says Diane Eccleston, manager of the apartment house that houses the Ambassador restaurant. "Needless to say, we're devastated that it's closed" (as of the first of the year). So are some of its loyal customers, who have been coming for as long as 55 years to the grande dame of Baltimore's apartment house dining rooms.

Two other casualties: Profusions, Baltimore's first self-styled fusion cuisine restaurant, on North Charles Street, has gone under, as has Cusack's, the gourmet sandwich shop-bistro in


Bolton Hill.

New in Little Italy

A new restaurant in Little Italy is always cause for celebration. In this case it's Antney's at 1018 Eastern Ave., which calls itself the only true bar and grill in the neighborhood.

The menu is pretty much appetizers, sandwiches and pizzas, but look for daily lunch and dinner specials, mostly in the $7-$10 range. All the food is made on the premises, says owner Anthony "Antney" Apicella.

Olympic city's best eating

If you're planning to be in Atlanta for the Olympics this summer and would like a list of the Atlanta Journal/Constitution critic's top 10 restaurants, send me a self-addressed stamped envelope. You probably should make your reservations now!

Chew on these

Two veggie-related items: First, Ritz-Carlton has introduced a macrobiotic menu at its 31 hotels around the world. Dishes include poppy seed cake with maple tofu ice cream for dessert. Second, John Lehndorff, food editor of the Boulder, Colo., Daily Camera, quotes vegetarian A. Whitney Brown: "I'm not a vegetarian because I love animals; I'm a vegetarian because I hate plants."
