Food ** (2 stars) Service *** (3 stars) Atmosphere **1/2 (2 1/2 stars) Whether you like Big Kahuna Cantina, the newest Harborplace eating spot, may depend on how much you like sweets. At least that's what crossed my mind when I ate a few of the potato chips that come with the ground ahi-tuna burger. (It turned out they were dusted with Kona coffee, which for some reason gave them a slight sugary flavor.) The tuna burger itself had a slice of grilled pineapple on top. That was after I had ordered a glass of sangria that tasted like fruit syrup.

The former executive chef at Petit Louis will open La Cuchara , a Basque restaurant in the Meadow Mill complex, this summer. The chef is Ben Lefenfeld, a veteran of the Foreman Wolf restaurant group, who also worked at Charleston and who helped Foreman Wolf open Johnny's in Roland Park. Lefenfeld has signed a lease with Eutaw Property Enterprises at Meadow Mill, which was built by the sailcloth manufacturer William Hooper Co. in 1877 and whose most notable tenant was the London Fog company.

At La Tijuana Cantina, a Tex-Mex restaurant in Mount Vernon, our enchiladas, chalupas and fajitas arrived on pretty brick-red ceramic plates, accompanied by a warning. Those little green peppers resting so attractively next to the cilantro sprig and slice of lime are just there for decoration, our waitress said. Eat them at your own risk. Poor:]

The owners of the Fish Head Cantina in Arbutus, where a man was stabbed to death last month, were ordered to pay a $2,000 fine Monday by the Baltimore County Board of Liquor Commissioners. The board did not suspend or revoke the bar's liquor license. Thirty-six people, including employees and neighbors, showed up in support of the bar. An aunt of 22-year-old victim John Bowman spoke against the bar. An attorney for Fish Head Cantina said that the bar has improved security in recent years in response to request by the board and police, but violence can still occur.

Miguel's Cocina y Cantina is on the ground floor of Silo Point, a luxury condominium project that looms (that's the only word) eerily over the modest rowhouses of the surrounding Locust Point neighborhood. To get the full incongruous effect, try approaching it first, if you can, via the free Water Taxi Harbor Connector that runs on weekdays between Fells Point and Tide Point. It's a short walk from the landing through an industrial-residential mix, and by the time you get there you'll have built up an appetite for novelty and adventure.

A Memorable Place A border crossing, a day to treasure By Susan Drey SPECIAL TO THE SUN My daughter Sam and I spent our first evening at Big Bend National Park camped in the middle of the Chisos Mountain basin. The next morning we peered out the tent to see the pink glow of the surrounding mountains. From that moment, I knew Big Bend would become one of my favorite travel destinations. The Texas park is a wonderful juxtaposition of desert, mountains, hot springs and beautiful red rock formations.

Many students at one of America's toughest schools - the Naval Academy - dream of flying warplanes or commanding submarines. After 3 1/2 years at Annapolis, though, what Midshipman Antonio Garcia really wants is to become a professional bull-rider. A strange aspiration, considering the 21-year-old was seriously injured riding a bull three weeks ago in an Anne Arundel County bar when he butted heads with the 1-ton animal named Rock Pile. Garcia said yesterday that he wants a rematch at the Cancun Cantina in Glen Burnie.

"There's nothing not fun about it," Scott Wolfson, a Germantown news photographer, says of tiki culture. But this can be serious fun. Wolfson and his wife, Jen, spent $12,000 transforming their basement into a Polynesian-flavored "immersion environment" - and he now has his eye on the backyard. If you'd like to try sticking a toe into the tiki waters, here are a few possibilities: Festivals: Hukilau will be held June 14-17 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Includes a trade show, concerts (including a performance by Baltimore's Keri Burneston and Adam Krandle, better known as Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey)

The Fish Head Cantina in Arbutus will have to defend its liquor license Monday following a stabbing that claimed the life of a man following a rap show there. The county liquor board called the hearing in response to the stabbing July 7 that killed 22-year-old John Bowman. Police found him after they were called to the bar for a report that fights had broken out as about 300 people left the show around 1:30 a.m. The bar's owners have been called before the board in the past — for fights, noise complaints and underage drinking, but made changes to security based on police recommendations, according to county records.

Diablita Cantina has closed; the Mexican restaurant's last night was Saturday. The news was posted on the restaurant's Facebook page: "Last night for La Diablita. All daily drink specials from open to close ... while supplies last. " This is the third restaurant to close in the old Holland Manufacturing Building since late 2007, when the Annapolis imports Lemongrass and Tsunami started their truncated runs. The Diablita closing suggests that this location, in what is technically Little Italy, is still not on many people's dining maps.

The dual restaurant space at 1300 Bank St. near Little Italy always struck me as odd. When it opened, it had a Thai restaurant, Lemongrass, and a pan-Asian restaurant, Tsunami, so close together that they shared a kitchen. Lemongrass took off, but its sister restaurant didn't - probably because it was perceived as simply a more expensive version of the first place. The new owners of the restaurants (who also own Red Star in Fells Point) have taken a different approach. They have turned the pan-Asian restaurant into Diablita Cantina, a casual Mexican place that's a step up from the usual tacos-and-fajitas factory.

I was afraid when I reviewed Baltimore's Tsunami, a pan-Asian restaurant at 1300 Bank St., that it wasn't going to make it. And, indeed, it closed less than a year after it opened, "merging" with its sister restaurant, Lemongrass, next door. At the time, one of its Annapolis owners told me they were planning to have either an Australian pub or a Latino restaurant there eventually. So I wasn't surprised to hear that Diablita, a Mexican restaurant, had finally opened in the space after almost a year.

There's no denying parking is a problem at the Annapolis Harbour Center, but Raymond Lubrano came up with a solution. At the end of the month, the owner of Cantina D'Italia will move his restaurant from the center to a new building he constructed on Defense Highway -- with plenty of parking. Lubrano, who was also an owner of Vespucci's at City Dock until he sold the location to Phillips last summer, says the new Cantina will seat the same number, around 200, and will have the same menu.
