2012 Leth Gruner Veltliner From: Wagram, Austria Price: $19 Serve with: Roasted poultry, salmon with cream sauce This is an especially rich, creamy version of this classic Austrian white wine variety. It's basically dry but with a hint of sweetness. Its lush texture is reminiscent of a top-flight Alsace pinot gris, but at a more affordable price. This wine is bursting with flavors of honey, peach, pears, orange, lime and mulling spices. It's a very impressive wine from a producer I haven't seen before.

Maison Marconi, 106 W. Saratoga St., (410) 727-9522. This is a restaurant that doesn't know what the word trendy means. The food is comfort food, which may sound odd when you're talking about lobster and sweetbreads; but it's true nonetheless. It's still the same quirky, personable, comfortable place I remember from my earliest days in Baltimore. The menu is pretty much unaffected by the food fashions of the day. I remember ordering these same dishes two decades ago: lobster cardinal, sweetbreads in a cream sauce, creamed spinach and, of course, the now famous ice cream served with a bowl of homemade chocolate sauce.

Sammy's Trattoria opened five years ago in a Mount Vernon space that was widely considered a jinx. Tampico and Limoges opened and closed with impressive speed before Sammy's moved in with a modest and appealing menu of Italian favorites. The restaurant's owner is Sam Curreri, a longtime manager of Little Italy's Chiapparelli's, and what I found so effective then about Sammy's Trattoria was its clever repackaging of basic Italian-American fare like veal parmigiana and shrimp scampi.

With a strike going on, you may wonder why you would want to know about Strapazza at Camden Yards. Consider this: When the Orioles are playing, it's the worst time to have dinner here.You might get carbon monoxide poisoning sitting in the outdoor cafe because of all the traffic. Even if you don't, it would be like eating in Grand Central Station. And as for getting a seat indoors . . . it's probably easier to get Orioles tickets.After all, the original Strapazza in Towson is a popular place, known for offering huge portions of Italian pastas at minuscule prices.

Because of a computer error, the ratings in Sunday's review of Ashley M's Restaurant in the Home & Family section were incorrect. They should have read: food:***, service: ***, atmosphere: ***The Sun regrets the errors.Am I missing something, or is there a reason Ashley M's doesn't draw a crowd every night? This pleasant, moderately priced restaurant is the newest venture of Ed Rogers, chef and owner of La Tesso Tana. It has the relaxed feeling of a neighborhood spot; but with its white tablecloths and good-looking decor, Ashley M's is nice enough for a special occasion.

Deciding what to order is difficult when a restaurant's menu is as interesting as the one at the Tavern at Centre Park in Columbia. It took awhile just to wade through the nearly two dozen appetizers.So, it was a good thing executive chef Henry Pertman made his way to our table before we ordered. Pertman, dressed in a chef's jacket and flashy loose pants, pointed out some Tavern specialties - dishes that are popular with customers (the crab dip and Florentine mixed grill) - and his own favorites (the smoked fish and duck)

Artful Gourmet Bistro is a casual shopping-center eating spot with an unusual twist: The food is imaginative and good. Other such places exist in the Baltimore area, but they're rare. When you see a soda machine and a refrigerated case as you walk in the door, you don't expect baked brie and paella on the menu -- or a beer and wine list. Owner / chef Paolo Romeo thinks he knows why the small storefront with its open kitchen has been such a big hit from the moment it opened a couple of years ago. "The appeal is we're a mom and pop shop," he says.

Maison Marconi, 106 W. Saratoga St. Open for lunch and dinner Tuesdays to Saturdays. MC, V. No-smoking area: no. Wheelchair-accessible: no. Prices: first courses, $1.50-$8; entrees, $5.50-$18.50.As a sort of antidote to all the new upscale chain restaurants I've been to lately, I paid a visit to Baltimore's venerable Maison Marconi. Not that I've had my fill of charred rare tuna and marinated portabello mushrooms, but it was good to step back 15 years, which is about the last time I ate at Marconi's.

Jackie's CafeWhere: Omni Inner Harbor Hotel, 101 W. Fayette St.Hours: Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, 6:30 a.m. to midnight seven days a week.Credit Cards: AE, DC, Discover, En Route, MC, V.Features: American dishes, light fare.Non-smoking section? Yes.Call: 685-8100.** Jacqueline was sophisticated, dressy and stupefyingly well-traveled; she covered her walls with antique maps and could turn out a mean choucroute garni Alcasienne. Jackie, on the other hand, is perky. She favors garden-party floral prints and likes the latest hit tunes, and her taste in food is contemporary American.

From: Santa Lucia Highlands, Calif. Price: $20 Serve with: Salmon with cream sauce This is hardly a delicate, crystalline white wine. It's big, robust, rounded and creamy in texture. The alcohol level is high for a white at 14.2 percent, but it's barely detectable behind the generous flavors of pear, tropical fruit, spices and honey. This is one of those dry wines that gives an impression of sweetness with its bold fruitiness. Not for casual sipping, it needs to be paired with food.

When the Chameleon Cafe opened five years ago, Lauraville was still a well-kept secret. The neighborhood renaissance had hardly begun. No plans had been announced to develop a chic little shopping center and yoga studio at the corner of Harford Road and Montebello Terrace, and the area's real estate hadn't taken off the way it soon would. The idea that the new restaurant across the street from the Safeway would be serving haute cuisine instead of crab cakes, hon, was almost inconceivable.

For Parties Around the Holiday Season, You May Want to Dress Up Some of Your Favorite Dishes With a Lush and Sumptuous Sauce. That doesn't have to mean making stock from veal bones or simmering liquids on the stove for hours. More and more cooks are experimenting with sauces made from pureed vegetables or caramelized fruit. Even those famous French chefs have found shortcuts to make their renowned and revered demiglace.

ITALIAN food is an easy sell. What's not to like about pizza? Or pasta dressed in a tomato or cream sauce, then topped with grated cheese and served with a slice of buttery garlic bread? Not much. Which may be why Tony LoBue, a Belgian of Sicilian ancestry, expanded his pizzeria into an Italian cafM-i 16 months ago. He's created a pleasant place where one can eat or drink without spending a lot of money. The lounge has an attractive wooden bar where he sells a number of excellent Belgian beers as well as the usual suspects.

Barbara C. Reier of Towson asked, "Would anyone have a recipe for pistachio ice cream? We love it, and it is almost impossible to find in the food stores."Her answer came from Charlotte Veneracior of Glen Arm.Faye Mager of Annapolis requested a fudge sundae sauce "like the one once served at Hutz-ler's department store." The chosen response came from G. Dzimianski of Baltimore, who noted that she was sending "an old recipe my mother used, of course, with chopped nuts or a cherry on top of ice cream."

When I was a working mom with teen-agers needing to be fed, I devised a highly organized system for managing the food supply.I'd sit down and make dinner menus for two weeks, develop a shopping list, shop once, post the menus, and assign dinner tasks (including cooking, salad making, table setting, and dish washing and drying) on a rotating basis. It worked great.Then the kids dispersed and I found myself with no one to organize, and no one but myself to feed. I became the "queen of quick."
