The British-born chef Robert Gadsby carries an impressive resume, complete with apprenticeships under world-famous chefs, executive chef positions at acclaimed restaurants in Los Angeles and Houston, and even an appearance on "Iron Chef America. " The latest stop for the well-traveled chef is an out-of-the-way Columbia office park, where he has opened Gadsby's Bar American in a space that was formerly a Greystone Grill, one of several that operated in Maryland. On a Saturday night in January, when the place was crowded with diners β€” some of whom were taking advantage of a restaurant-week promotion β€” Gadsby's kitchen and staff were clearly struggling to keep pace.

Joseph Poupon, the owner of Patisserie Poupon , is preparing to open a downtown cafe version of his patisserie. Cafe Poupon will be located in the cafe space at 225 N. Charles St. The storefront space adjoins the Grand Historic Venue, the former Masonic Lodge now operated as an event space by the Embassy Suites Baltimore hotel. Unlike the Jonestown patisserie on Baltimore Street, which sells only pastries, the new location will offer a menu similar to that at Poupon's store on Wisconsin Avenue in Washington, namely breakfast and lunch fare like omelets, quiches, brioche and baguette sandwiches, and nicoise salad.

Sarah Acconcia, the former executive chef at 13.5% Wine Bar, will be the chef at Le Garage Beer Bar & Frites, a French restaurant opening this spring in the former Dogwood space on 36th Street. Inspired by the success of new French restaurants in major food markets like New York and San Francisco, Le Garage will serve "working-class" versions of French classics and reinvented peasant dishes, according to a press announcement for the new restaurant. "We wanted to create a place with approachable, French food that our friends would crave and could afford," Acconcia said.

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.

The French Kitchen's menu includes French classics like salade nicoise, boeuf bourguignonne and croque madame.

The meals presented here are the 15 best I've had this year. They're a mix of review-dinners and some that I ate in my off hours. They were the best times I had in restaurants this year.

Marylanders love oysters, so news of restaurants focused on the slippery bivalves, like Bel Air's brand-new Main Street Oyster House, is always welcome.

It's lively and fun and sure to be a huge hit with people looking for a good time in downtown Bel Air.

The owners of Canton's Fork & Wrench have signed a 10-year lease for a restaurant space at Union Wharf, the Bozzuto Group's new luxury apartment complex on Wolfe Street in Fells Point.

The new Samos, which opens Monday at The Shops at Canton Crossing, won't be exactly like the original, enduringly popular casual restaurant in Greektown. For one thing, the new Samos will take credit cards, said Michael Georgalas, whose father, Nicholas, opened Samos on Oldham Street in 1977. For another, the new Samos will be open on Sundays. The Samos at Canton Crossing, which the younger Georgalas owns and operates with his wife, Valentina, will be a fast-casual restaurant where orders are placed at the counter and brought to the table by food runners.
