Good news for Chipotle fans, aka dudes everywhere. New Chipotle stores are coming to Mid-Town Belvedere and the Southside Market Place in the Locust Point Industrial Area. The first Chipotle will open on Dec. 6 in a ground-floor retail space at Twelve09, the condominium complex at 1209 N. Charles St. in Mid-town/Belvedere. This is near the corner of Charles and Preston, where that Starbucks is. The next Chipotle opens on Dec. 13 in the Southside Market Place.

Wine is the focus at Grand Cru, a bar in the charming food market at Belvedere Square. It's a good spot to sit and learn about new wines — chances are, Grand Cru's knowledgeable staff can help you find a new favorite grape. The selection of small plates, however, needs some of the particulars worked out. More of an after-work meet up than a first date destination, the setting for this lively bar is a sparse and industrial interior with exposed pipes. The kitchen/prep area is modern and warm, with accents of wood compared to the rest of the cold concrete and aluminum room.

The Sunday review is of Stang of Siam, a new Thai restaurant in Baltimore's Midtown-Belevdere neighborhood. Without notice, much less fanfare, Stang of Siam just kind of opened one day in late September. But from day one, it came across as a fully seasoned restaurant. Kind of odd, to tell the truth. It turns out that Stang of Siam is related to a group of popular D.C.-area Thai restaurants, the best known of which, The Regent, opened back in 2004 in the Dupont Circle neighbohood.

The name alone, Egyptian Pizza , might conjure up any number of curious images, or shut down imagining altogether as you try to get a grip on the juxtaposition. Wait till you see the dining room. The Belvedere Square pizzeria-cum-Middle-Eastern-restaurant at 542 E. Belvedere Ave. presents diners with a striking interior that's part obvious to the point of parody and part mysteriously jarring. But don't let that get between you and Egyptian's Giza pie. The lighting's a few watts too low. The music track is limp easy listening: think Seals and Croft on Valium.

Look for a Sofi's Crepes to open soon in Belvedere Square, where the Starbucks used to be. The Sofi's operation now at the Woman's Industrial Exchange is packing up lock, stock and batter, owner Ann Costlow says. But please don't get this screwed up. The original Sofi's in Charles North, next to the Charles theater isn't going anywhere. And the Sofi's in Annapolis and Owings Mills, which are franchise operations, are staying put. But this does mean that there will not be a Sofi's Crepes going into the Senator theater.

The owners of Daedalus Books & Music had great expectations when they opened their first stand-alone retail store at the then-recently reinvigorated Belvedere Square in 2006. But the bookstore opened just before the national economy went into the tank. Daedalus found that because remainder books — the excess inventory sold at a discount by publishing houses to outlets like Daedalus — are so low-priced, it was hard to sell enough to keep the store going. It is set to close next month.
