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.

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?

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.

She regrets leaving not only the $150,000 worth of improvements she made to the building, but )) the loyal customers she's grown so fond of.So will the restaurant reopen elsewhere?

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. The luxury restaurant is traditionally Old Baltimore in its emphasis on steaks and chops and Maryland seafood. But its young chef, Stephen Bohlman, whose background includes the Polo Grill, Linwood's Due and 208 Talbot in St. Michaels, brings a fresh approach to those old favorites.A new look to Paolo'sPaolo's in Harborplace is closed, but the good news is that when it reopens at the end of March it will be renovated from top to bottom.

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.
