The number of independent restaurants in Baltimore has been holding steady, according to the most recent restaurant census conducted by The NPD Group, a market research company. The Spring 2012 ReCount, which includes chain-operated and independent restaurants open as of March 31, 2012, shows a net decline of exactly two independent restaurants from the previous survey. The census reported 3,067 independent "units" in the spring 2012 survey and 3,065 in the spring 2011 survey. The census showed a slight uptick in the number of chain-operated units.

Before Restaurant Week even begins each year, some Baltimore spots plan on extending their special fixed-price menus. That's not exactly a state secret. But sometimes a breakthrough gimmick, snowfall or an inspired Tweet compels a restaurant to extend its deal beyond the official Jan. 30 closing date. In the middle of Wednesday night's snowstorm, Blue Hill Tavern announced via Twitter and Facebook that it would extend its Restaurant Week deal for every inch of snow that fell.

The owners of two popular restaurants in downtown Baltimore have agreed to pay $1.3 million and establish new hiring measures to settle a years-old lawsuit alleging racial discrimination against black applicants and employees. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed the lawsuit in 2008 against McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants Inc. and Schmick Restaurant Corp., owners of McCormick & Schmick's and M&S Grill in the Inner Harbor. The lawsuit claimed the restaurants violated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by refusing to hire black applicants for front-of-the-house positions such as servers and hostesses.

Joe Flacco's Hail Mary pass in Saturday's division game may have saved the Ravens' season, but it appears to have emptied the tables in Baltimore restaurants. Baltimore bars did clean-up business on Saturday, but restaurants lost customers, as patrons called in to cancel reservations, according to anecdotal conversations with local restaurant owners. Blame it on bad timing. The division game began at 4:30 p.m., which was perfect, in theory, for planning a Saturday night restaurant dinner -- if the game had ended in regulation.

A city councilman is pushing a bill that would require every restaurant in Baltimore to post a health grade based on the facility's cleanliness — but some restaurants are pushing back. "We know this policy has been proven across the country to be effective," says City Councilman Brandon Scott, who cites similar efforts in New York, San Francisco and Charlotte, N.C. "It's about transparency. It's about education. It's embarrassing that in 2014 the only way a citizen can see the inspection results in our city is to call 311 and wait for the Health Department to give it to them.

On Wednesday, Baltimore will relaunch its publicly owned TV station, shifting its focus from broadcasts of government meetings to CharmTV, a showcase for city restaurants, businesses and neighborhoods. City leaders see an opportunity to counteract negative perceptions of Baltimore, but with the change come questions about significantly increased spending on an untested business model - without benefit of data to show how many people watch the station. An extensive publicity campaign from the Mayor's Office of Cable and Communications promises a fresh slate of four locally produced prime-time programs equal in quality to those seen on the Food Network or HGTV, showcasing "all that is proud, inspiring and authentic" about Baltimore food, nightlife, neighborhoods and history.

Damon Hersh, the new executive chef of Kali's Court and Mezze in Fells Point, is one of the lucky ones. Although he didn't plan to make cooking his life's work, it's what he loves to do. "The job is difficult, but it rings a bell in my soul," he says. "I love creating and sharing with other people one of their most basic needs, food - and doing it in a way that makes it more than basic." Hersh, 39, is best known to Baltimoreans as the chef who opened Louisiana, another Fells Point restaurant, to almost instant acclaim.

IN HIS NEW BOOK, "Kitchen Confidential," Anthony Bourdain, a 43-year-old bad-boy chef from New York, says some nasty things about the way restaurant kitchens work. He says the fish sold on Monday probably was delivered on Saturday. He says that if you order a steak "well-done," you're likely to get a tough, stringy piece of sirloin. And he says no matter what the menu claims about the chef's love of low-fat cooking, butter - at least a quarter stick per customer - is the backbone of the restaurant business.
