New finds at Vespucci's

Vespucci's (87 Prince George St., Annapolis) has made some big changes recently. New owner Raymond Lubrano says he's downsized the restaurant, which had three different dining areas, and changed the menu. It's still an upscale Italian seafood restaurant, but there are more dinners in the moderate price range now.

The downstairs bistro has been rented out to a company called Aromi d'Italia and will open next spring as an Italian coffee shop with pastries and gelati.

Since Lubrano took over a month or so ago, the restaurant has been promising "satisfaction guaranteed" in its ads. "So far, we have had no complaints," he says.

Cooking for children

J. Paul's Restaurant in Harborplace's Light Street Pavilion will hold free cooking classes for kids ages 7 to 14 this Saturday, Dec. 13 and Dec. 20 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Classes will be limited to 20 participants. One of J. Paul's chefs will teach kids how to prepare holiday favorites. To register, call 410-659-1889.

Grilled seafood to go

Paradise Seafood Market (6411 Frederick Road, Catonsville) has recently opened a carryout with seafood sandwiches and platters. But it's not just a stop for crab fluffs and shrimp salad; customers can also get their fresh seafood grilled to order.
