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 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. Always, always the food mattered, but so did other things, like the company I was with and the score of the Orioles game. A blow-out at Charleston It helps sometimes, going in, to have a hypothesis.

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

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.

Taking issue with parking, occupancy levels and the ratio of liquor-to-food sales, several neighborhood associations are opposing a request for a liquor license transfer that would allow the owners of Michael's Cafe in Timonium to open an establishment in Federal Hill. The leadership of both the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association and the South Baltimore Neighborhood Association are encouraging their membership to show up to speak against the request at Thursday's meeting of the Board of Liquor License Commissioners for Baltimore City.  The neighborhood associations say that Michael's has not agreed to the groups' desired occupancy limit of 150 and they are not satisfied with Michael's parking situation.
