The Sunday dining review is of The Milton Inn in Sparks. The field stone building that houses the Milton Inn dates back to the mid-18th century. A restaurant has operated there since 1947, and the current ownership has been running things since 1997. So, how's it holding up? Pretty well, actually. And if you think the Milton Inn is one of those wax museums that pass for fine dining, think again. How about venison pate with figs, apricots and pistachios. Or homemade grits made with corn that was smoked on the premises.

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.

We'll always have the Milton Inn. The northern Baltimore County classic still delivers all of the tradition and perks diners want from a fine-dining, special-occasion restaurant. On any given night, the Milton Inn experience unfolds in six dining rooms within a meticulously kept 271-year-old fieldstone mansion. Regulars ask for the room known as The Hearth, the only one with a wood-burning fireplace. All but one of the other rooms have gas fireplaces. The Main Dining Room, where we were seated, is just off the entrance, to the right.

I had waited years to go to The Milton Inn. It's one of those venerable places that crops up in almost every conversation about the area's best restaurants -- best special occasion, fancy, expensive restaurants, that is. And with its name are always accolades about beautiful atmosphere, exquisite food, memorable evenings.So, I went recently -- with a reservation made three weeks in advance -- with great anticipation.I think it was too much anticipation. This was clearly a case of getting there being at least half the fun.Don't get me wrong.

Spring may be the best time of year to visit the Milton Inn, Baltimore's favorite destination restaurant. The front dining room of the mid-18th-century fieldstone house has large windows on two sides and is filled with light as the sun sets. The apple-green walls and handsome period furnishings of this pretty room look their best this time of year. Its well-spaced tables beckon, set with white linen, sparkling stemware and fresh flowers. The effect is fresh and appealing. So why does the hostess walk us past this lovely, mostly empty room and try to seat us in the back dining room, which is windowless, so dark someone at the table next to us has borrowed our candle to read his menu, and crammed full of other diners?

In his planning for Highland Inn, Brian Boston wanted to create a place that had the same solid attitudes about American cuisine as the Milton Inn, his long-running special-occasion restaurant in northern Baltimore County . But Boston said he wanted Highland Inn, which is near Clarksville in southern Howard County , to be more accessible, the kind of place where folks would want to come once a week instead of just...

The year 2013 was, for the most part, a positive one on the Baltimore dining scene, except perhaps for trend-spotters. For every sign, there was a counter-sign. The sudden closing of a restaurant was followed by an unexpected, or at least not highly publicized, appearance of a new place. One restaurant would make itself over into an informal version of its formal self, and across town, a fine-dining establishment would open. Small plates continued to spin. Farm-to-table concepts continued to matter, but restaurants started to present them differently.

You don't have to tell Brian Boston that the Highland Inn , his project near Clarksville in southwest Howard County, has been a long time coming. "It's been a little frustrating," said Boston, the executive chef and operating partner of the acclaimed Milton Inn in Baltimore County. But Highland Inn's opening really is getting closer. It will be open before the end of the year, in late November or early December, Boston said. "Most of the inside is finished," Boston said. "The kitchen has been in for quite some time.

Joel R. Bailey, a longtime Baltimore County public school English teacher who also coached basketball, died Friday of complications from a stroke at Gilchrist Hospice Care. He was 77. "The first thing, Joel really liked his students. ... He enjoyed interacting with them. He was a gentleman," said William L. McIntyre, who grew up with and attended elementary, middle and high schools with Mr. Bailey. "He was the same way in basketball. He was a good teaching coach. He communicated well with his students and he respected them, and they respected him," said Mr. McIntyre, a retired Eastern Technical High School social studies teacher.

Last year at this time, we told you to look out for some of the restaurants that would be opening in 2012. Most of them, like Fleet Street Kitchen and Heavy Seas Alehouse, actually did. A few projects we told you to look forward to didn't see the light of day. Here's what we're reasonably sure about for the first few months of 2013: First up, My Thai , originally located in Mount Vernon's Park Plaza building, will reopen in a new location in...

The move to the city has been good for the former operators of the Milton Inn in Sparks. After the restaurant closed its doors temporarily last September, executive chef Robert Taylor and restaurant manager Lynn Patrick brought most of their staff with them to a new location in the Admiral Fell Inn. They left an establishment that had a national reputation but was a little, well, stuffy. Being a Destination Restaurant is serious business. Their new venture, Hamilton's, is low-key in comparison, a little jazzier and -- what a pleasant surprise -- not so pricey.

What's a Baltimore foodie to do?If you went looking for Savannah, the popular nouvelle Southern restaurant in Fells Point yesterday, you were too late. Savannah is no more. Instead, you'd have found in its place Hamilton's, a new establishment featuring New American cuisine that is a direct descendant of the much admired but recently expired Milton Inn.Not that the Milton Inn is completely gone, of course. And for that matter, neither is Savannah, really. The former is being remodeled and could reopen later this month, while the chef of the latter is launching the new restaurant Charleston at Inner Harbor East next month.
