The EEOC suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, alleges that owner Michael Sakellis, repeatedly would inappropriately touch or would make sexual comments toward female employees, some of whom were teenagers. One female employee said she was given alcohol, which she believed was drugged in an attempt to sexually assault her, the suit says.

Ordering fish and chips at a place named Basta Pasta might seem like a stretch. But in fairness, the Lutherville restaurant's full name is Basta Pasta Italian & Seafood Restaurant, and it ably handles both fish and pasta. Judging from a recent order of fish and chips, it's clear the fry cook knows his business - the coating on the fresh filet was crisp, without a hint of oil visible. The fish is actually local rockfish, which elevates the classic English street fare to sit-down restaurant status.
