There's no denying — craft beers are more popular than they've been in decades. To keep up with demand, restaurants and bars have upped their draft selections, hosted beer tastings and started pairing food with beers. In the Baltimore region, few restaurants fill this niche as well as Frisco Taphouse and Brewery . This Columbia restaurant and bar serves a fantastic selection of beers, and backs it up with solid dishes. Crowds have responded — on a recent Wednesday night, Frisco was packed.

On a busy night at Sushi Sono , which by many accounts is every night, the wait for a table in the cramped entrance area, even with a reservation, can be an exercise in patience. Formalities and niceties are mostly dispensed with, and the service on a busy night can border on the hectoring. The idea that you could maintain a state of quiet contemplation in Sushi Sono's hectic dining room is laughable. None of this matters. The reason to make the trip to Lake Kittamaqundi, to put up with the confusing signs and alienating ingress into Wincopin Circle, is that Sushi Sono might just have the best sushi in the four-county area.

Jean Poholsky looks forward to dining at Iron Bridge Wine Co. for the upscale ambience as well as for the food. So when she arrived at the Columbia restaurant for lunch with friends Monday, she was shocked to see glass shards covering a stone walkway that had been spray-painted in red with the words "Get rid of the foie gras." An admitted lover of the French delicacy made from the livers of ducks and geese, Poholsky concurred with the restaurant's owners that whoever was responsible for the overnight vandalism could have expressed their opinion differently.

For David G. Albert, a good brunch includes eggs Benedict, and a good restaurant is one that can do the saucy egg, muffin and bacon dish well. No wonder three good meals from a Canadian brunch restaurant two years ago prompted Albert to open the restaurant here in Columbia. Eggspectation, off Route 100 at Snowden River Parkway and Waterloo Road, is the first U.S. location for the Canadian chain, but it won't be the last, Albert said. He and his partner, Jon Hinkle, have purchased development rights for the northeast corridor, and are already looking for a second location to expand the chain.

Piccolo's in Columbia is an Italian restaurant that has the panache of a New York-style supper club.As we entered, jazz musicians were playing softly and soulfully in the sunken central bar of the restaurant, and the lights were turned down low. Candles flickered behind frosted shades. It just took a little imagination to turn the traffic on nearby Snowden River Parkway into a street scene on New York's stylish Central Park West, especially with the trees outside wrapped in little white lights.

Once a month, a group of opera singers takes talent to a venue not often thought of as a classical music hotspot - a local restaurant. For the performers it's a chance to work their magic in a relaxed setting where diners are as eager for Pavarotti as they are for pasta. "To be able to perform in front of an audience is always a good thing," said Jessica Swink, a coloratura soprano. "If you can do it with people who are eating and clanging silverware, then when there's an orchestra you will be able to do it effortlessly."

Like an alien invasion in paperback sci-fi, a Chipotle Mexican Grill could be dropping down in your neighborhood. Instead of running away from this fast-growing chain, people are flocking to it. There are 350 locations in the United States, with new ones opening each month. Landing recently in the Columbia Crossing shopping center, the fast, fresh Mexican burrito stop offers customers a mix-and-match selection of spicy fillings to suit individual tastes.

Three Brothers Italian Restaurants is taking over the site of a former Piccolos restaurant that closed two years ago, and it has plans to create its own miniature restaurant park there. The restaurant company - owned by brothers Michael, Mario and Peter Repole - purchased the site off Snowden River Parkway. They are renovating the building for a planned opening in January. Part of the $2.4 million business plan involves enclosing the patio to create a cafe that could eventually be leased by small vendors such as ice cream or coffee shops.
