301 S. Water St., 410-244-1885. Open 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m Mondays-Fridays, closed weekends Rosina Gourmet is a bright spot in a corner of old, dark Baltimore. The official address is 300 E. Lombard St., but the most visible entrance is just off the corner of Water and South streets. Apparently it is possible to wend your way to Rosina Gourmet from the Lombard Street entrance, but only denizens of the building know the route. In the quirks of this ancient part of the city, South Street starts off as Guilford and changes names once it crosses Baltimore Street.

When I asked my husband what he thought of his decidedly un-gourmet-looking club sandwich, surrounded by potato chips with a dill pickle on top, he gave it quite an endorsement. "It's the best club sandwich I've ever eaten," he said.I had a bite. And then another. And then another. I had to admit the combination of gently smoked turkey with crisp bacon, watercress, chopped tomato and chutney mayonnaise was addictively good, even if it was sweeter than I expected.We were eating at Peerce's Gourmet.

There isn't much I'd change, fundamentally anyway, about Catonsville Gourmet. And based on everything we saw on a Saturday night, from the lines out the front door to the smiles on diners' faces throughout the sprawling restaurant, there's not much anyone else would change. Comfortable, accommodating and upbeat, it's an easy restaurant to like. Since its opening in 2008, the restaurant has been a popular choice, especially for Catonsville residents, who have made it into their gathering spot.

Paolo Romeo believes that food is art. The chef-owner of Artful Gourmet, which has been an Owings Mills mainstay for just over a decade, isn't wildly avant-garde in the kitchen. He doesn't take chances on creative dishes. But Romeo does take an artist's care with his capable interpretations of Italian food and global favorites. And the restaurant's adoption of the food-is-art theme adds charm to a menu stocked with familiar fare. His conservative approach, which focuses on well-worn classics like lamb chops and simple pastas, appears to be a hit with locals, who keep the restaurant busy.

Charles Kelley stands in Baltimore's historic Lexington Market, chowing down on a Faidley's overstuffed crab cake sandwich. It doesn't bother the 37-year-old North Carolina man that the market doesn't have gourmet coffee, wine or cheese shops. He's OK with the faded signs and the dirty floor. As jumbo lump crab meat spills out of his sandwich, Kelley is in a state of bliss. "I've had crab cake sandwiches all over," he says, "and this is the best. " While devotees such as Kelley, who come from long distances for the renowned seafood at the 231-year-old market, are content with their surroundings, city officials are hoping to attract a broader audience.
