If a Baltimore restaurant has a view of the Inner Harbor that rivals any in the city, it's as important a selling point as a great crab cake - at least judging from the requests I get. The new Watertable, a redo of what used to be Windows in the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel, has a good, if not great, crab cake. The view, however, is nothing short of spectacular. With the redesign, the hotel din ing room is no longer staid but sleekly contemporary, with lots of wood and glass. It's handsome and a bit impersonal, the way good-looking hotel dining rooms tend to be. Of course, the tables by the floor-to-ceiling windows are most desirable, but every seat in the house now has a view of the harbor.

On April 11, the 51 coifed and buffed Miss USA contestants will strut their stuff in Baltimore, vying for the pageant title live on the stage of downtown's Hippodrome Theatre. But in the weeks leading up to the pageant, the contestants will be strutting that stuff about 15 miles south down Interstate 95. Because there weren't enough downtown hotel rooms available for the pageant, the contestants - who arrive in Maryland three weeks before the show - will have to unpack their mascara and double-stick tape in Columbia.
