In the food world, the battle between serious carnivores and vegetarians is a famous one, with meat-eaters often claiming that without meat, food simply can't be that tasty. Clarksville restaurant Great Sage, which this year celebrates a decade of vegan, organic cookery, proves that even without meat, a meal can be hearty, satisfying and, yes, delicious. Though sometimes the restaurant's laid-back vibe veers into just-plain-slow territory, overall, dinner at Great Sage could win over even the most die-hard meat lover.

In many cultures, especially Asian, a humble facade hides a fancy home inside. In this case, though, the inside of Pho Dat Thanh (pronounced "Foe Daht Than") in Snowden Marketplace, Columbia, isn't all that fancy, either. A single room, with a small bar to one side near the entrance, features silvery green walls with a tangerine-hued chair rail in the middle and rather non-descript prints above. The tables are bare-topped, with a stainless basket of condiments providing a bit of color.

A businessman, a Sardinian and a former Raven walk into a restaurant - have you heard this one before? Jokes aside, that's the trio behind Grille 620, which opened in October in Ellicott City's new Turf Valley Towne Square. Ali Sadeghi, who also owns Clarksville's River Hill Sports Grille, is the businessman, former Raven Adalius Thomas is a financial backer and Fabio Mura, formerly of Chazz: A Bronx Original, is the Sardinian-born executive chef. Grille 620 offers a lot to love but the restaurant is still finding its footing.

The menu at Rosario's Italian Kitchen covers everything from fried shrimp to breakfast all day, but as the restaurant's name implies, for many, dinner time here means Italian. And at this friendly Rosedale spot that opened in 2012, those Italian dinners are very good. Scene & Decor The restaurant is open nearly around the clock - from 7 a.m. until 4 a.m. every day. Those hours and the menu's dizzying array of options scream "diner. " Rosario's is mostly casual but its warm decor and professional service elevate it above diner level.

The No. 1 Maryland women have a wealth of players who can finish, and Alex Aust knows how to set them up perfectly. The senior attacker has dished out 17 assists to seven different players in the last three games. In Tuesday's 17-10 win over UMBC, she set a Terps single-game record with seven assists, breaking the mark held by seven different players including herself. Terps coach Cathy Reese said Aust became especially adept at feeding from behind the cage last season when she dished out 52 assists, third on Maryland's all-time single-season chart behind Jen Adams' 60 in 2001 and 55 in 2000.

Maryland subscribers of the DISH satellite service won't be able to access the Big Ten Network to watch Saturday's Maryland-West Virginia football game — and the network has purchased a spirited newspaper ad to explain its side of the story. The network and DISH remain locked in a dispute over the terms under which DISH would carry BTN in Maryland and New Jersey. "DISH is leaving Maryland fans in the dark," the network says in the draft of an ad it bought for Friday's Baltimore Sun. BTN carries a number of Maryland football games, as well as dozens of contests in basketball and other sports.

Arguably, there have been few springs in recent memory when many of us haven't planned to wring every bit of hedonistic pleasure from every holiday. The folks at La Palapa Grill & Cantina on Main Street in Ellicott City plan to cater to pleasure seekers over a multi-day fiesta built around Mexico's Independence Day, aka Cinco de Mayo. Truth is, this particular Mexican restaurant has been hosting a continuous fiesta since it opened in 1999, joining its older sibling, Clarksville's El Azteca, and preceding its younger sisters in North Laurel, Silver Spring and Odenton.

Chef Brett Arnold knows the name of his Glenwood restaurant can lead diners who are unfamiliar with his casual American fare to assume he runs a barbecue joint. While it's true that Smokin' Hot Bar and Grille makes a dozen barbecue sauces and sells a lot of smoked chicken wings - more than 5,000 the day the Ravens won Super Bowl XLVII - there's more to the eatery than the name suggests. The restaurant offers entrees that include seafood, beef, pasta and, as an occasional special, lamb.

What a nice dinner that was at Bistro Blanc. We enjoyed beautiful and well-constructed appetizers, perfectly cooked entrees and scrumptious desserts. And we just plain enjoyed ourselves at this wine-focused Glenelg restaurant. When Bistro Blanc opened in 2008, it was promoted as a wine bar that also served food. It was meant to be a place where wine lovers would congregate, work their way through a well-considered wine collection and avail themselves of a high-tech, self-service wine-dispensing system.

The Conrad's seafood empire is expanding, and it's taken restaurant form. Conrad's Seafood Restaurant is the newest member of the Conrad's seafood family of businesses, which includes a popular seafood store in Parkville, a crab deck at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen and a seasonal store in Jacksonville. The Perry Hall restaurant opened in late January, focusing on what Conrad's is known for: high-quality seafood and crabs. There's no doubt that Conrad's ingredients are top-notch and conceptually, the menu is impressive.

* Item: Fresh From the Start Potatoes * What you get: 3 to 4 servings * Cost: About $1 to $1.75 * Preparation time: Use straight from package in a variety of recipes * Review: I'm sure potato peeling is becoming a lost art for many people. But as someone who tends to find the task loathsome, I can't help but be thrilled by the number of pre-washed, peeled and cut potato products now on the market. Fresh From the Start Potatoes are partially cooked, making them even more convenient. Following a recipe on the package, I used the Red Bliss Potatoes to make Herb Roasted Reds.
