Every now and again, Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will dash off a Certificate of Recognition for a meritorious Maryland business.  Today, Franchot is scheduled to stop by Koco's Pub up on Harford Road where he'll be presenting one of those certificates to Koco's owners John and Joanna Kocovinos and their daughter Marcella Knight. The certificate will recognize Koco's "for its reputation as a wonderful, neighborhood gathering place, its welcoming and friendly atmosphere, its award-winning Koco's Crab Cake -- made with a secret family recipe -- and award-winning chicken wings," according to a media alert from the comptroller's office.

Our waitress is so slim it looks like she never eats the food. This usually isn't a good sign at a restaurant, but at Koco's, it turns out to be a false alarm. We don't know what her diet is, but as far as we could tell, at Koco's, the higher the calorie content, the better the food. Koco's is a Lake Montebello mainstay that has recently gotten a face lift. The neighborhood bar has been freshly painted inside and out in very bright (parrot) colors. New T-shirts and hats with a beachy motif, and the occasional stuffed toy parrot, complete the tropical theme.

All discussion of Koco's Pub and Grill, a friendly little eatery in Baltimore's Lauraville neighborhood, must begin with the crab cake ($23.95). This enormous mound of pure, snowy lumps has been compared to a softball on foodie Web sites. But I think they're even bigger than that. Maybe a grapefruit. Or a small cantaloupe. Poor:]

There are worthwhile dining specials all over town on Thursday. Donna's in Columbia and Regi's in Federal Hill run wine specials, and Galen Sampson whips up some fried chicken at Dogwood in Hampden. The most popular one is at Koco's Pub in Arcadia, where the tavern's famous crab cake platter goes $19.95. If you get shut out of Koco's, stay on Harford Road and head up to Hamilton, where Clementine runs a Thursday night pate special . Specially priced house made pates during happy hour are $5 each.

With little or no fanfare, Lynn Schaare has opened Lynn's, a full-service restaurant, where her bistro, Cup of Gold Cafe, used to be (554 E. Fort Ave.). Paul Lopez, Lynn's executive chef, has been trained in French techniques; but the emphasis is on Maryland ingredients. So, for instance, you can get Maryland-style cioppino and sauteed rockfish as well as rack of lamb with provencale vegetable fricassee and breast of duck au poivre. Entrees are priced from $14 to $30. Lynn's, which is open every night for dinner with brunch on the weekends, offers complimentary valet parking.

It has been such a long time since we've enjoyed the excitement of a pennant race that the search for Baltimore's top crab cake has replaced baseball as my favorite pastime. My quest focused on three well-known contenders: Faidley Seafood in the Lexington Market, G&M restaurant in Linthicum and Koco's Pub and Grill on Harford Road in Northeast Baltimore. On a recent afternoon I visited them all, brought their cooked crab cakes home, weighed them on my kitchen scale, then devoured them.

Sociologists looking for the quintessential neighborhood pub would be smart to park themselves at Koco's. This family-owned tavern in Lauraville not only serves up good local fare — excellent crab cakes and juicy wings — it is also embedded in this Northeast Baltimore community. As you walk in, the door signs tell customers not to park "above the alley," the parking area on a side street, set aside by custom for residents of nearby houses. Once inside, you walk past a kid's corner, an area stuffed with games and teeming, the night we were there, with neighborhood youngsters.

Thursday is Julia Child's 101st birthday, and the weather is cooperating. Who wants to eat, much less prepare, Child's beloved boeuf bourguignonne in 90-degree temperatures? Boeuf bourguignonne, although not necessarily Child's version, is on the menu at Cafe Normandie in Annapolis, Tersiguel's in Ellicott City and Crepe du Jour in Mount Washington. Williams-Sonoma stores are celebrating Child's birthday with all-day tastings of boeuf bourguignonne and birthday cake.

BEST BURGER: Alewife Housed in the Eutaw Savings Bank Building, Alewife doesn't mess around when it comes to burgers. They only serve one -- and that's plenty. The "smoke burger" is the creation of chef Chad Wells. Like any successful artist, he wanted to take what inspired him and outdo it. The smoke house does nothing conventional. It is a burger with an IQ, as complex as it is delicious. Eleven ounces of seamlessly combined strips of meat including: brisket, skirt and fillet beef.
