Customers order at the counter at S'ghetti Eddie's, so I grabbed a paper menu by the cash register and started scanning the choices. Pistachio-crusted trout? Barbecued ribs? It sounded great, but not what I was expecting from a pizza and pasta place. Whoops. I had picked up the Loco Hombre menu instead. I might just as easily have grabbed menus for Alonso's or Miss Shirley's, which were also on the counter. All are helmed by Edward Dopkin of the Classic Catering People Dopkins. Poor:]

When you open a restaurant, you sweat the small stuff.That is what I discovered the other day when I went to lunch with Lenny Kaplan and Ed Dopkin, operators of the Pavilion, the new restaurant at the Hackerman House, the Walters Art Gallery's Museum of Asian Art. It was the second day of operation for the 130-seat, lunch-only restaurant.Before I got there, I had a vision of what eating lunch with the owners of a new restaurant would be like. I thought we would all sit around like royalty, feasting, discussing the sweet life and being fawned over.

As if he didn't have enough on his plate, Loco Hombre owner Edward Dopkin - who recently bought Alonso's next door - will be taking over Jasper's in Pikesville, probably in August. To be more precise, Dopkin is a partner both in the Classic Restaurant Management Group, which will be running the restaurant proper, and a separate entity, Classic Catering People. The catering company will take over the multipurpose banquet room, which will now be called the Classic Room.By late August, after some renovation, Jasper's should reopen as a second Loco Hombre.

Alonsoville has been the nickname for the section of West Cold Spring Lane between St. Mary's Lane and Keswick Road, so called in honor of its longtime resident restaurant, Alonso's. In recent years, Alonso's has become the anchor eatery of a group of restaurants - all co-owned by Eddie Dopkin - along that stretch of Cold Spring. Now, with Dopkin's newest addition to the clan set to open tomorrow, perhaps the area should just be renamed Eddieville. Say hi to S'ghetti Eddie's. It has taken over the space vacated a couple of months ago when its previous resident, Miss Shirley's Cafe & Bakery, moved to larger digs across the street.

Edward "Eddie" Dopkin, the popular restaurateur who founded and owned Miss Shirley's and co-owned the Classic Catering People, died Saturday at age 61. Dopkin's dining successes and relationships within the community earned praise Saturday from Baltimoreans who patronized his establishments and who, like the Baltimore Ravens organization, relied on his family's Owings Mills-based catering company. "My heart aches at hearing the news of Eddie Dopkin's passing," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said in a statement to The Baltimore Sun. "He has been a constant fixture in the restaurant and catering community of Baltimore for many years and his commitment to the City was unwavering.

Over dinner at the Brass Elephant in January, two couples pored over their calendars to iron out this year's schedule for their Ocean City beach house. They decided when to open the oceanfront town house for the year, which owner has the place each week and which weeks are for renters. The two Baltimore couples, Deborah and Mark Dopkin and Elissa and Stanley Hellman, bought the house a decade ago and split the cost. The arrangement gives each full run of the beach house while paying only half the utilities, fees and maintenance.

Baltimore is a city that can use more bagel shops. Now we have a new one, the Roland Park Bagel Co. (500 W. Cold Spring Lane, 410-889-3332). This is the latest in the Crazy Man Restaurant Group, which includes Loco Hombre, two Miss Shirley's, Alonso's and S'ghetti Eddie's. The new shop replaces Sam's Bagels, so I asked owner Edward Dopkin why he thought another bagel shop would succeed in the same location. For one thing, he says, it's a more ambitious endeavor, offering sandwiches made with "quality meats" on wraps, flatbread and ciabatta rolls as well as bagels.

Blue was everywhere but in the moods of the guests at "Rhapsody in Blue: A Salute to the Gershwin Era," the Concert Artists of Baltimore gala. You had huge blue back-lit cutouts of skyscrapers around the edges of the Belvedere ballroom. Tables were draped in blue. And so were some of the guests. "I bought my blue gown just for this," said Towson University student Andy Berman, in a gorgeous navy one-shoulder number. Event chair Barbara Cox - decked out in a black-and-blue brocade jacket - also pointed out the evening's gift bags were made of blue velvet.

About a year and a half after opening, the popular Cold Spring Lane eatery Miss Shirley's Cafe has shut its doors. Not to worry. It's opened new doors catty-corner across the street. Eddie Dopkin, who owns the restaurant with son David, says the two found they had a "good problem" with the original location. "At lunch, and all day Saturday and Sunday, the demand exceeded the capacity we could handle," Dopkin says. He says there were often people waiting for tables crowded inside the front door and out onto the parking lot. So when Big Sky Bakery closed across the street, the Dopkins saw the larger space as a perfect new home for Miss Shirley.

Who knew that Roland Park was so starved for a place to have breakfast? ---Miss Shirley's is busy from the moment it opens its doors at 7:30 a.m. (7 a.m. on the weekends) to when it closes its doors at 3:30 p.m. (4 on the weekends), our waiter told us. I'm sure if owner Eddie Dopkin had realized people would be beating down his doors for the Belgian waffles and eggs Benedict, he would have put more than 50 seats in his retro cafe. As I understand it, Dopkin -- also owner of Alonso's and Loco Hombre across the street -- bought the location because of its parking lot. Parking is in short supply in the area, as anyone who has ever stopped by Alonso's for a hamburger or Loco Hombre for Tex-Mex can attest.
