Savannah to Charleston

When Cindy Wolf and Tony Foreman's new restaurant opens in the Inner Harbor East area, it won't be called Savannah. Instead it will be named after the city Wolf herself hails from. Look for Charleston to be open for business around Thanksgiving, serving her inventive take on traditional Low Country South Carolina cooking.

Little Havana lives

Contrary to rumor, Tim Whisted says, his restaurant Little Havana (1325A Key Highway, 410-837-9903) hasn't stopped serving food and isn't closing Nov. 1. In fact, that's about when the winter menu will kick in, with new items like filet mignon and fewer summery fruit salsas.

Whisted's theory is that people have confused his restaurant with Savannah (sounds like Havana?), which has been in a state of flux recently, or perhaps the nearby Globe Brewing Co., which was closed for renovations until mid-September.

Globe's new world

And speaking of the Globe Brewing Co. (1321 Key Highway, 410-347-7964): Although it's open now, the "grand reopening" won't be until Sunday, when dishes from the brew pub's new menu will be featured at a private party. The new menu, says owner Mary Louise Williams, will be "more trendy, with lots more appetizers and new entrees." The new chef, Michael Torre from the Water Street Exchange, should be on board by then. (He's not running things now because of a broken ankle.) Matthew Dorsey, who was sous chef at Savannah, is in the kitchen until Torre recovers and the restaurant formerly known as Savannah reopens as Charleston.

Eat out today

Today is the day that you can eat lunch or dinner at participating restaurants for the benefit of Moveable Feast, the organization that provides meals for HIV patients who are homebound. Restaurants contribute 20 percent of today's profits to the Dining Out for Life program.

It's a worthy cause. Last year Moveable Feast delivered 140,000 meals in the Baltimore area. Dining Out for Life is its biggest fund-raiser. Call 410-366-5433 for information on participating restaurants.

Salsa at Lista's

Check out Lista's new "Latin Nights" on Friday and Saturday evenings, from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. The Fells Point restaurant (1637 Thames St., 410-327-0040) has a new dance floor and a new kitchen on the second floor. Salsa dancing is the star of the show.
