Ahead of new rules requiring chain restaurants to post calorie counts for their menu items, some of the restaurants are voluntarily introducing lower calorie selections. The new items tend to be salads rather than the main attractions such as burgers and pizza, but they contain an average of 60 fewer calories or a reduction of 12 percent, researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found. The researchers looked at new menu items in 2012 and 2013, ahead of new rules to offer the public nutritional information required by the Affordable Care Act. And they said the results, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, could be the beginning of a trend in calorie reduction at fast food restaurants that aids the obesity epidemic.

From its waterfront perch at the corner of Thames Street and Broadway, Barcocina might occupy the most enviable real estate in all of Baltimore. With views of the harbor on one side and historic Fells Point on the other, the restaurant provides a glimpse of Baltimore at its most attractive. With those vistas and that central location, Barcocina's owners would have been forgiven for playing it safe in the kitchen, sticking with crab cakes and bar food. Instead, the restaurant has adopted a modern approach to Mexican food, serving creative twists on familiar dishes like tacos and seviche.

Although it's only minutes from the busiest parts of Howard County, the Highland Inn feels removed from the hustle and bustle of the area. From the pretty setting to the well-executed, classic food, dinner there is a welcome respite from everyday troubles. The Highland Inn's owner, Brian Boston, made his local reputation at the Milton Inn in Baltimore County. Like the Milton Inn, the Highland Inn is nestled in a quiet country setting. Peaceful and charming, the space, in an updated farmhouse, is a little less formal than the Milton Inn, but it is lovely enough to make a meal feel special.

For 34 years, Brass Balls Saloon has been a go-to location on Ocean City 's boardwalk, providing live entertainment daily and a whole lot of hilarious "balls"-related puns. To no one's surprise, and much to my 13-year-old's sense of humor's delight, the cocktail menu is no different. While widely known for introducing the Rum Runner to the Mid-Atlantic via Key West, Fla., alongside nearby Seacrets , Brass Balls Saloon's vast party cocktail menu doesn't disappoint with its summery blends.

Fall menus are arriving. Bluegrass Tavern executive chef Ray Kumm rolled out his fall menu on Sept. 9. Debuting at Bluegrass -- elk tartare, with violet mustard dressing, marinated corn and fried quail egg. Foie gras is back, with crispy pork belly, nectarines and cherry bourbon pudding. Cockles are on the light fare menu, steamed with four kinds of onions. Rabbit is on the menu, and butter poached sturgeon, but what caught my eye was this entree. Pan seared red drum -- tasso ham tortelli, cockles, chayote, tomato broth.

The cost to transform an underused bar into a buzzing hotspot is not cheap. But as the saying goes, when you pay for quality, you only cry once. Just ask Boathouse Canton co-owner Gene Singleton. He confirmed last week that the top-to-bottom renovations made to the former Bay Cafe (which closed in December after more than two decades of business) came with a $1.1 million price tag. For a guy helping to foot such a bill, Singleton sure sounded happy about Boathouse Canton. (He and his wife, Maureen McEnerney, took control in January and opened the restaurant in mid-April.)

The menu at Rosario's Italian Kitchen covers everything from fried shrimp to breakfast all day, but as the restaurant's name implies, for many, dinner time here means Italian. And at this friendly Rosedale spot that opened in 2012, those Italian dinners are very good. Scene & Decor The restaurant is open nearly around the clock - from 7 a.m. until 4 a.m. every day. Those hours and the menu's dizzying array of options scream "diner. " Rosario's is mostly casual but its warm decor and professional service elevate it above diner level.
