One of Baltimore's favorite pub chefs, Mark Littleton, is getting ready to open his own place. Adam's Eve Gastropub will is scheduled for a July 19 opening. Littleton first developed a following at the old Simon's Pub in Butcher's Hill. After seven years there, Littleton went on to Lulu's on Broadway in Fells Point. He's best known now, probably, for opening the kitchen at Annabel Lee in Canton, where he stayed four years. Adam's Eve is in the old Crossroads Bar and Restaurant in Canton on the corner of Foster and Highland avenues.

Annabel Lee Tavern, which celebrated its sixth birthday this past weekend, is well known for its unending dedication to the mythos of Edgar Allan Poe in its decor, atmosphere and oh, yes of course, its cocktail menu. A seasonally rotating selection of Poe-inspired creations to whet the whistle, all of which pay homage to the author's many works. This season's inspiration comes with its own set of hits, one in particular is a loving tribute to an enchantress named Isadore (featured in Poe's poem "To Isadore")

I ONCE HEARD somebody call WBAL radio and utter the following words: "Sylvester Stallone wants to make a movie about Edgar Allan Poe swimming the English Channel." Pretty weird idea, that one, but the kind of kooky thing you used to hear on nighttime talk radio. Turns out, there was some truth to it. Rambo really had a thing for Baltimore's strangest famous dead literary figure. He really wanted to play Poe in a movie. (And Poe had done some long-distance swimming in his Virginia youth.

Fall - finally! I, for one, am in desperate need of a crisp, warm, comforting cocktail to ring in the cooler weather. Think spicy, rich flavors, lush, dark cognacs, seasonal apple and pumpkin accents, a touch of mystery. If you're craving a good autumn drink as much as I am, step into the strange and whimsically macabre world of Annabel Lee Tavern in Highlandtown. Proprietor Kurt Bragunier has been serving up delicious, dark drinks at his Edgar Allan Poe-themed restaurant for four years and admits his favorite drink, back on menu this season after a two-year hiatus, is a bit of an enigma to patrons.

Baltimore, city of little pretense and lousy baseball, had occasion to look down its nose at Philadelphia just a day after the Phillies won the World Series. The reason: Elvira. The buxom Mistress of the Dark will help celebrate Halloween at Philly's Edgar Allan Poe National Historical Site tonight, when she participates in a reading of "The Raven." Baltimore officials, loath to trumpet any out-of-town Poe goings-on, couldn't help themselves yesterday, when they'd gathered in the ornate Poe Room of the Enoch Pratt Free Library to announce Nevermore 2009, a yearlong celebration of the writer's 200th birthday.

Much like its namesake poem, the new Annabel Lee Tavern is a dark and enchanting place, wistful of a time long past. After a midnight trip last Friday, I can easily say the tavern is my favorite new spot in Canton for conversation. With its burgundy walls, cloth curtains and stained glass shaded lamps, Annabel Lee Tavern captures a classic feel from generations ago. Owner Kurt X. Bragunier, a former general manager at Brewer's Art for seven years, wanted to create a less stuffy version of your grandmother's parlor.

The news isn't as bleak for foodies as it might seem at first. True, owner/chef Andrew Evans is selling his highly acclaimed Inn at Easton. But he's also planning to open a high-concept Thai restaurant not far away in Easton in late January. He's naming it Thai Ki, and wants to bring a fine-dining sensibility to traditional Thai food. Prices will be significantly lower than at the Inn at Easton, with nothing on the 20-item menu over $15. The restaurant will have a "green concept," he says, and will feature organic meats and fresh, local-when-possible vegetables.

The Annabel Lee Tavern in Highlandtown is designed as a whimsical shrine to Edgar Allan Poe and, by extension, a shout-out to Baltimore itself. Inside the narrow rowhouse, a candle flickers next to a drawing of the famed poet, and lines of his romantic, melancholy poetry are scrawled across the walls in large, looping letters. But don't get the wrong idea. This corner tavern is not some gimmicky cobwebs-and-candles ode to Baltimore's favorite dead poet. Owner Kurt Bragunier was most recently manager at Brewer's Art, and he has brought a similarly high level of style and inventiveness to this much smaller space.

At long last, it looks as if Abacrombie (58 W. Biddle St., 410-837-3630) will be reopening, perhaps as early as tonight. The tiny basement restaurant succeeded so well under former chef/owner Sonny Sweetman that the new management doesn't plan to make major changes in the format. That means fine dining, a European menu with some contemporary twists, and a European wine list. Rumor had it that Corks was somehow going to be involved in the new Abacrombie. That turned out not to be true. Jerry Pellegrino, co-owner of Corks, is, however, "the producer of this project although he's not the major investor," says Greta Clausen, the new general manager.
