We've all seen enough cute photos of kids with Santa Claus. We're looking for the outtakes -- the pictures showing little Billy squirming off Santa's lap or Suzy crying. Send us the photos you didn't give the grandparents for Christmas, and we'll publish the best of them in the Modern Life section on Sunday, Dec. 17. Address them to Elizabeth Large, The Sun, 501 N. Calvert St., Baltimore 21278. You can also e-mail them to email@example.com. Each photo should be accompanied by your name, your child's name and age, the date of the photo and your daytime phone number.

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.

Cuba libre!Baltimore's first upscale Cuban restaurant is finally open, as of yesterday. Neighbors were concerned Little Havana, 1325A Key Highway, would be a mega-bar disguised as a restaurant, and that held things up. But owners Tim Whisted and Richard von Lange convinced them otherwise, so now you can eat grilled swordfish with mango and blueberries or peppercorn-coated pork tenderloin with 10-bean salsa in the chic, colorful dining room. And don't miss the bar itself, a work of art made of antique pressed-tin tiles.
