On Friday, Belvedere Square will help pay tribute to the late Nelson Carey, the owner of Grand Cru, a European-style wine bar that has been one of the longtime anchors of the North Baltimore marketplace. From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., during Belvedere Square's weekly free   Summer Sounds   concert, merchants such as Atwater's, Ceriello Fine Foods and newcomer Tooloulou will be serving a different version of Carey's favorite food -- the hot dog.  Guests will be asked to make a $5 donation for each hot dog, and the money raised will be used to help finance the college education of Carey's daughter, Paige.

All day Tuesday, they came to the Grand Cru wine bar with swollen red eyes, hugging one another and trying to make sense of the loss of a good friend and boss. They lifted a glass and reminisced about Nelson Carey, the genial and worldly publican of Belvedere Square, whose Grand Cru has been a popular destination for a decade. Mr. Carey, whose European-style wine bar and patisserie was more than a home away from home for an eclectic and devoted band of regulars, died early Tuesday of heart failure at Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

Wine is the focus at Grand Cru, a bar in the charming food market at Belvedere Square. It's a good spot to sit and learn about new wines — chances are, Grand Cru's knowledgeable staff can help you find a new favorite grape. The selection of small plates, however, needs some of the particulars worked out. More of an after-work meet up than a first date destination, the setting for this lively bar is a sparse and industrial interior with exposed pipes. The kitchen/prep area is modern and warm, with accents of wood compared to the rest of the cold concrete and aluminum room.

Baltimore's dining scene is getting some national bandwith. Spike Gjerde reveals seven of his favorite Baltimore food highlights for "Short Order," a regular feature of GQ's website. And the noted food authority, Esquire contributor and author John Mariani has written a "Day Tripper" piece about Baltimore for his weekly Virtual Newsletter. Gjerde's piece was published a few weeks back, but we're just seeing it now. Chef Spike Gjerde's Guide to Baltimore tells the world about Spro , Grand Cru , Belvedere Market , Patisserie Poupon , Wit & Wisdom , the restaurant at the new Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, Alexander's Tavern and Thames Street Oyster House . Mariani's piece , which takes the form of a day-tripper's guide, has very nice things to say about Aldo's and Chazz: A Bronx Original , which he says are the exceptions to the dismal norm in Little Italy.

If Rodney Henry had his way, we'd all be eating pie for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He did his part recently to make sure that happens by opening Dangerously Delicious Savory House (3547 Chestnut Ave., 410-662-7437) in Hampden where Finnerteas was. Every day the Savory House, an offshoot of Dangerously Delicious Pies, offers seven to 10 pies: savory, sweet and quiche (which Henry considers separate from the savory pies because of the eggs and cream). Lunches and dinners consist of a meat pie like steak or pork barbecue, which comes with a salad and a side item such as coleslaw.

Whether true or just a bit of wishful folklore, champagne was reportedly first cooked up by the French Benedictine monk Pierre Perignon (c. 1638-1715). When Dom Perignon first tasted his concoction, he is reported to have said, "Come quickly, I am drinking the stars!" These many years later, nothing says Happy New Year quite like sparkling wine. But you don't have to serve the vintage that bears Dom Perignon's name to have an experience worthy of seeing stars. It can be a daunting prospect to determine what really is great to serve at a party or give as a gift.

One of the most civilized trends to come along in the new millennium is wine bars. Suddenly theyM-Fre everywhere. Last December a new one, Grand Cru, opened in Belvedere Square. It was followed last month by the Wine Market, a wine bar, cafe and retail shop, which opened in Locust Point. And a new wine bar is part of the current renovations at DonnaM-Fs in Cross Keys. Besides the places that label themselves wine bars, just about every good restaurant these days offers an impressive selection of wines by the glass at its bar. The most spectacular local examples are Charleston and Petit Louis, under the direction of wine expert Tony Foreman, who is also co-owner of Bin 604 Wine Sellers.

Grand Cru, a mainstay of Govan's Belvedere Square, is a quiet little secret of a good cocktail joint. You associate the place with wine, I'm sure. But they have a pretty nice little drink program and a team of bartenders who can make you just about anything your heart desires. But if you'd rather let the menu do the ordering for you, let me suggest you try The Old Man and the Sea - the drink not the acclaimed novel, though both are Hemingway crafted. Cuba 1935. As bartender Constante "Constantino" Grande's mixed drinks at his bar, El Floridita, "a scruff, bearish man entered and asked to use the bathroom.

Here's what you'll find in the Northwood Plaza Shopping Center: Sunny's Subs. Rainbow Apparel. Northwood Liquors. Asiatic Cutz Barber Shop. ABC Chinese Carry Out. Save-A-Lot grocery store. Here's what you'll find in Belvedere Square: Bon Bons. Atwaters. Earth's Essence . Farmstead Cheese. Grand Cru. Ikan Seafood & Sushi. You don't have to know exactly what the stores are to know we're talking about places that appeal to two distinct classes of shoppers. I bring up this comparison only because the residents of Northwood want to turn Northwood Plaza into something more like Belvedere Square.

The following recommendations of red Bor deaux are base on tastings of barrel samples between April 1 and April 6. While barrel samples are not finished wines, they provide a good indication of a wine's quality. Readers should be aware, however, that samples can be misleading, even to experts, and no conclusive rating of a wine's quality can be made at this time.The following categories loosely follow the 1855 classification of Medoc wines into First through Fifth growths, extending the system to all regions of Bordeaux.
