Where do I go to find out [a restaurant's] sanitation rating? I'm from a state where ratings are posted at the door, leaving nothing to chance. - Timisha Porcher I love California's system, where restaurants get a letter grade from the health department, which they have to post prominently in front. Baltimore's system is more pass-fail. The city health department doesn't give ratings, but it does, of course, inspect places. The information on a particular restaurant is available to the public; you have to go to the department in person to get it. Have a question about dining out in the Baltimore area?

When Gorelick joins the paper Monday, his duties will include reviewing the area's impressive array of restaurants and operating the Sun's successful food blog. Dining at Large was started by former restaurant critic Elizabeth Large, who retired in February after 37 years on the beat. "Richard will do a great job," Large said. "His reviews are very knowledgeable and fun to read.

The Palmer HouseThe Palmer House, 108 N. Eutaw St., 410-752-8969. Tired of homogenized, cookie-cutter restaurants? Then head on over to Eutaw Street, two doors south of Lexington Market and five blocks north of Oriole Park to "The Original Palmer House." The walls are jammed with photos: Everyone from Babe Ruth to Blair Lee and then some. There's a card reader in residence, should you want a look into the future while you wait for dinner. The menu offers pasta, plenty of seafood, sandwiches and an interesting array of vegetables, such as kale and cooked cabbage.

In 1973 a brash young critic had dinner at Danny's, the most acclaimed restaurant in Baltimore. She ate steak Diane flambe and escalopes de veau a la francaise, and wrote that the restaurant "never quite lives up to its pretensions." It was the start of a most amazing career -- mine, as a restaurant critic of The Baltimore Sun. After almost 37 years on the job, I'm retiring with this column. A couple of weeks ago, I had my last meal on The Sun, a large bowl of pho dac biet with round steak, flank, brisket, beef tendon and tripe at Pho Dat Thanh in Towson.

There is a relatively new restaurant at 1717 Eastern Ave., which once housed one of my favorites, The Spanish Meson. What is the name of the new one and are there any reviews? I would like to take a friend there for her birthday. - Barbara Phillips The restaurant is Timothy Dean Bistro, a fine addition to Fells Point. You can read my review at baltimoresun.com. Do you ever find that a particular dislike of a food or dish interferes with your reviews? If you hated cheese, for example, and the house specialty was a cheese dish, I would think it would be problematic writing a fair review.

Restaurateur Lenny Kaplan, owner of the Polo Grill, takes on a new challenge with the opening next week of Lenny's Chop House in the Harbor Inn Pier 5.

Haussner's,Haussner's, 3244 Eastern Ave., (410) 327-8365. The almost formidable menu seems to offer something for every taste: moose saddle ($20.75), lasagna primavera ($9.30), sauerbraten ($10.35), fried shrimp ($14.50), scallops with shiitake mushrooms ($14.10), vegetable platter, your choice of five from the list of 35 ($7.20). We particularly enjoyed the fried eggplant and the crab imperial. $$ -- moderate. (Last visited 4/92.) Owl Bar, the Belvedere, Charles St. at Chase, (410) 539-1355.

Those restaurants traditionally thought of as most romantic are also the ones most likely to be crowded, with rushed servers and an overworked kitchen. Not romantic. My advice if you have to go out on Valentine's Eve (Saturday) or Day (Sunday) is to make an offbeat choice. There might not be quite the atmosphere; but you probably won't spend as much, and no one will mind if you linger, gazing longingly into each other's eyes. I have, however, included a couple of destination places in case you do feel like spending a little money.

If Elizabeth Large isn't hungry for dessert after dinner, very soon she will not order it. The longtime Baltimore Sun restaurant critic plans to retire and start dining out like a civilian. "It will be nice to be able to order exactly what I want and not order more than I want because I need to test it," said Large, who announced Tuesday that she will retire at the end of the month, nearly 37 years after her first restaurant review. In that span, Large has seen exotic cuisine, small plates and big names come to a restaurant scene once dominated by crab fluffs and sour beef and dumplings.

Because I don't eat out during Restaurant Week, I decided to make up a list of blog commenter recommendations for my Top 10 Places for Restaurant Week that appeared on Dining@Large (baltimoresun.com/diningatlarge) on Jan. 12. Most of them are pretty obvious - a good restaurant is a good restaurant - but a couple you might not have thought of. Here's an alphabetical list of restaurants where commenters think you'll get the most bang for your buck during Winter Restaurant Week, Jan. 22-Feb.

Urban Garden SpotThe name is something of a misnomer, located as the restaurant is on Allegheny Avenue in the middle of Towson. But the new Garden Spot Cafe, where Donna's used to be, is more than just a lunch place catering to workers in the surrounding office buildings.Owner Paul Resko, who hails from Georgia, is offering plenty of gourmet sandwiches and salads. But there are also entrees like shrimp and saffron linguine and vegetable and watercress tort. Dinner specials might include shrimp with lobster butter sauce or grilled tenderloin.
