The Bamboo House in Cockeysville is a comfortable, soothing oasis set incongruously in a shopping center off York Road. It is announced, even more incongruously, by a huge, screaming "BAMBOO HOUSE" sign that dominates the center's entrance.The Bamboo House is also a successful oasis, having recently grown from one room to three, all done most soothingly in subtle shades of gray and peach with subdued lighting from large, modernistic fixtures.The feeling of being at ease grows with the treatment afforded customers.

In the race to open more sushi restaurants per square mile than anywhere else in Maryland, Towson had been pulling ahead. But now, with the new Chiu's Sushi Japanese Restaurant in Inner Harbor East, I'm not so sure. Downtown seems to be staking its claim once more. Still, owner Tom Chiu says he decided on the location because "Downtown needs a traditional sushi restaurant." I don't want to get into a debate on a subject I don't know enough about, so I leave it to others to decide whether Chiu's is more or less traditional than Kawasaki, Shogun, Minato, Matsuri and the others.

The Baltimore Grille at the Omni Hotel, 385-6601. Th Baltimore Grille, which opened in September, seems to be taking its place among a new generation of hotel restaurants that court local diners, as well as the in-house trade, with serious food and service. The grille is an uptown restaurant tucked into a corner of the Omni Hotel with a bold menu, soothing surroundings and warmly solicitous service. The food is good, too. The menu offers two fixed-price dinners ($39.95) with each course accompanied by an appropriate wine and an a la carte section, featuring Black Angus Beef and lobster among the offerings.

A good way to enjoy watching the Summer Olympics is to snap on the television, put the recliner in the deep-comfort position and order Chinese takeout. I started my Olympics regime about a week early by ordering three versions of Moo Shu Pork, then settling into a recliner and alternately nibbling on the pancakes stuffed with meat and vegetables and working the remote control.

Phone: (410) 569-3506.When you think of good Chinese food, Ming's, Uncle Lee's and the Bamboo House deliciously come to mind. Now you can add Chen's to the list. Chen's? A carryout? In the wilds of Harford County? Yes, yes, yes.This tiny eatery -- there are only three tables -- opened unceremoniously in a small shopping center less than a year ago. The grand opening offer of 15 percent off lured me inside.

You enjoyed eating crepes from the Crepe du Jour cart in the Village Square at Cross Keys; but you wanted, well, a little more in the way of a dining room. Head for Mount Washington, where the owners of the cart, Donna and Mustapha Snoussi, have opened a cafe of the same name at 1609 Sulgrave Ave. This is where Stone Mill Bakery was. Crepe du Jour's new location has been spiffed up with fresh paint and posters from Paris, and the cart's menu has been expanded. You can get crepes with all sorts of savory and sweet fillings, plus salads, quiche and homemade desserts.
