Luxury and tradition

Table Talk

Restaurateur Lenny Kaplan, owner of the Polo Grill, takes on a new challenge with the opening next week of Lenny's Chop House in the Harbor Inn Pier 5. The luxury restaurant is traditionally Old Baltimore in its emphasis on steaks and chops and Maryland seafood. But its young chef, Stephen Bohlman, whose background includes the Polo Grill, Linwood's Due and 208 Talbot in St. Michaels, brings a fresh approach to those old favorites.

A new look to Paolo's

Paolo's in Harborplace is closed, but the good news is that when it reopens at the end of March it will be renovated from top to bottom. The jazzy Italian restaurant is expanding its dining room and getting a completely new kitchen. As for the food, the menu will be revamped "somewhat," says manager Matt Deneker.

I've been hearing good things about Timonium's new restaurant Edo Sushi (53 E. Padonia Road). In spite of the name, it offers a variety of Japanese dishes, from tempura to noodles. Edo is open every day for lunch and dinner.
