I put a question to one of Southeast Baltimore's busiest restaurateurs: What is the secret behind the steady growth of so many Latino restaurants flourishing along the old commercial corridor in Highlandtown? "People are looking for portions, price and quality," said Carlos Cruz, the owner of Carlos O'Charlies, a place that now qualifies as an Eastern Avenue Latin-American institution. Diners are likely also looking for a comfortable place, in a traditional neighborhood that looks ... well, very Baltimore.

Further redevelopment measures are on the drawing board.Among them is a City Council ordinance that would require shop owners to take better care of the external appearance of their businesses and improve the district's management.

It sounded like a Baltimore-themed idea that made sense. To celebrate a century of screen painting, 100 new, colorful window screens would be installed along the commercial district of Highlandtown, in the very heart of the neighborhoods where this summertime tradition flourished. Why not? Despite our dependence on air conditioners, people still open their windows in this Baltimore neighborhood - and there are in fact hundreds of window screens along Eastern Avenue. Because this remains a commercial street full of traditional small businesses, there are not so many ground-floor screens.

He said his wife asked the group if they could quiet down. When the couple awoke this morning, they found two large planters at the front stoop smashed, the soil spilling onto the sidewalk.

It didn't move far — just one block up Eastern Avenue — but the new Ikaros is a world apart from the original, which the Kohilas brothers opened in 1969. Sometimes bigger is better. The new Ikaros, which opened last summer, has things the old one didn't, like a banquet facility on the building's second floor and a dedicated bar space, separated from the main dining room by a wall partition. The bar seems like a nice place to wait for a table, but when we visited, most guests kept close to the hostess stand instead, which seemed a bit overwhelmed.
