The Colonnade is home to a new restaurant, once again. The Spice Company was set to open today in the space previously inhabited by Four West and the Polo Grill. The name of the eatery may be new, but those behind it are familiar to many in Baltimore's dining-out crowd. Keir Singh owns the successful Indian restaurant the Ambassador Dining Room and the popular Lebanese Carlyle Club - both in the same Johns Hopkins neighborhood as the Colonnade. His partners - John Yuhanick and son Todd Yuhanick - have helped open and promote a number of local restaurants over the years through their public-relations firm.

Retired U.S. Navy Capt. John "Jack" Slaughter said people often ask him what the secret to his long life is. "It was an awful lot of luck," he told friends and four generations of family - about 240 people from around the country and as far away as Canada - who gathered at the Colonnade in north Baltimore on Sunday to wish their patriarch a happy 100th birthday. For one thing, Slaughter said, the first ship he served on was the only one in a group of four to survive a battle during World War II. The other three ships were sunk.

For the next three months, buyers of residences in the Colonnade condominiums may also receive, tax-free as part of their purchase, enough funds to cover a substantial portion of a grandchild's college education.If the buyers are relatively young and can't yet afford a mortgage payment at the Colonnade but expect a raise in the near future, they may qualify for a "lifestyle subsidy payment" that would give them $500 a month for the first 18 months after they move in to bridge the gap.If they are worried about selling their current house, the developers of the Colonnade will guarantee the sale for them.

Being both a special occasion restaurant and a hotel dining room is a tough balancing act. A few places manage it -- Hampton's in Harbor Court comes to mind -- but for the Inn at the Colonnade, it's not so easy. After all, Harbor Court has a second, less-formal dining room. What this means is that you could be going to the Club at the Colonnade to celebrate your wedding anniversary and be eating next to someone wearing a baseball cap. That happened to me on my first visit a couple of months ago (sitting next to the cap, not having a wedding anniversary)

The Colonnade is home to many condos, but not many like the one owned by Rosemary Nicolosi of Baltimore. The building itself, located in the Tuscany-Canterbury neighborhood, is from the 1980s and its units typically reflect '80s interior design, including white carpet and plenty of marble. But Nicolosi tossed all of that out the window when she bought her condo a few years ago. "She re-did everything," says Realtor Kelly Stucker of Yerman, Witman, Gaines and Garceau LLC. "It took a year to finish it."

Food: *** (3 STARS) Service: *** (3 STARS) Atmosphere: *** (3 STARS) It's about time. The restaurant space in the Colonnade may finally be filled with the right sort of tenant. Not that there was anything much wrong with the Polo Grill, Four West or the Club at the Colonnade - the previous occupants - except that they all had upscale hotel prices. The new owners have swept away all traces of the old Polo Grill, which in its heyday was one of Baltimore's finest. The restaurants that followed it had clung to a few of its signature dishes, most notably the fried lobster tail and white chocolate banana cream pie. At Spice Company, they are replaced by a grilled lobster tail with wild mushroom risotto and minted pea puree at about half the price, and the ever-popular creme brulee or key lime pie. A new beginning is a good idea, especially when it involves neighborhood-friendly prices (nothing on the menu is over $25)

A MEMORABLE PLACE Great beauty in unkind city By Michael Purdy SPECIAL TO THE SUN I did not like Florence, and Florence did not appear to like me. A small Italian city, Florence pulls in tourists at a rate comparable to that of Paris or Rome. They flood the museums, churches and piazzas, great gaggles of people from all over the world, bobbing along behind tour guides. It didn't help that I'd been in Europe on my own for a week, and was starting to feel lonely. Walking into Florence alone and trying to find a hotel was such a smack in the face that I nearly got back on the train.
