Vietnamese food is a particularly attractive combination of fresh ingredients and familiar Asian flavors. Add the current popularity of its steamy noodle soup, pho, and it's no wonder that right now, Vietnamese food is hot, hot, hot. Indochine, which opened last May in an unassuming storefront in a Midtown stretch of Charles Street, covers the Vietnamese bases, from simple appetizers like rolls and dumplings to traditionally flavored rice dishes....

IN RECENT DECADES, the people of Baltimore have done amazing things in building and rebuilding large parts of their city. Baltimoreans have created big new wonders like the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards. They have restored old wonders like Fells Point and Otterbein. Now they're at it again. This time the action is in Midtown, the center-city district that includes Bolton Hill and Mount Vernon, Charles North and Madison Park. The four Midtown neighborhoods are proud, lovely places, each with a long history of resisting urban decay and salvaging urban delight.

Walk through a graffiti-tagged corridor, under a light rail bridge, past the cars hurtling down the Jones Falls Expressway and you've entered what some believe could become a wonderland. A group called Section 1 envisions a skate park built under a labyrinth of highway support columns. They see concrete walls as canvases for street artists. A weedy lot, the setting for food truck rallies and art fairs. And an overgrown field near CSX tracks could hold a concert stage with space for an audience of thousands.

SPECIAL BENEFITS TAX districts are nothing new for Maryland. They have been around since 1929 in Anne Arundel County, where 14 new taxing districts have been created in the last six years. But the situation there is different from Baltimore, which only has two such districts, with voters currently deciding in a mail-in referendum whether to add a third.In Anne Arundel, the best way for many waterfront communities to pay to maintain roads and piers is by placing a special tax on themselves.

Stan Smith removes his Omega watch and billfold, the last of his valuables. The alarm system is activated. Only then does he venture beyond his rowhouse, avoiding alleys and strangers, for a pleasant evening jog on the streets of Bolton Hill.It's not like it used to be when the 54-year-old high school teacher grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, where front doors were left unlocked. "It's more of a comment on society as a whole," he said. "It's not only in the city."Smith and others in his neighborhood thought their fears would be allayed when they agreed two years ago to pay a surcharge tax for the creation of the Midtown Community Benefits District, carved in the heart of Baltimore to address issues of grime and crime.

When it comes to restaurants, never underestimate the role of location. For Plates, a casual American eatery located in the Downtown Athletic Club and surrounded by midtown office buildings, the location means a busy lunch but not much of a dinner rush. Sometimes the best time to visit a restaurant is in its off hours. At Plates, we found good service, well-executed, familiar food and a quiet - though sometimes slightly odd - atmosphere, right in the center of the city.

Calvert St. With the help of a local nonprofit group, some homebuyers are finding that Baltimore's midtown area offers historic houses and likely tax incentives and low-interest loans for those willing to put in the time, money and effort to renovate.

Maybe it was the baggy white pants decorated with jalapenos that made Mark Tilley stand out among fellow chefs. Maybe it was his signature dish, a twist on crab cakes -- a recipe he kept secret even from his grandmother. Tilley, the 31-year-old assistant chef at the Country Club of Maryland on Stevenson Lane in Towson, was shot and killed Wednesday night at his midtown Baltimore apartment in the 1600 block of St. Paul St., apparently by someone who broke in and confronted him in his living room.
