The Foreman Wolf restaurant group has made changes, big and small, to all of its restaurants. Formats have been massaged, tweaked and occasionally overhauled at Charleston , Cinghiale and Petit Louis Bistro . Pazo especially has been in a state of almost continuous flux since its late 2004 opening. The menu at first focused on tapas-style dining and later emphasized a more traditional appetizer-entree approach. Dancing and a clublike atmosphere were promoted for a while, and then not so much.

Baltimore's notorious "dine and dasher," accused of repeatedly faking seizures to get out of paying restaurant tabs, got a hefty bill on Friday from a city judge: five years in prison. Andrew Palmer, 47, has been eating and drinking for free around town for years. He became known by police and paramedics for feigning medical emergencies when his checks were due, and restaurant owners began posting his picture on their walls. Police have locked him up and he has been convicted dozens of times, but the maximum penalty for the charge of theft under $100 carries a maximum penalty of a few weeks in jail, which he repeatedly received and served.

By lunchtime yesterday, the giant mechanical teeth had chewed away at much of the Columbia lakefront building that used to be the Rusty Scupper restaurant. The machine had shattered the glass doors, torn off pieces of metal, bitten off planks of wood and then spit them back onto the ground. Demolition of the old Rusty Scupper building began about 7:30 a.m. yesterday and is expected to be complete by the end of the week, said David Costello, president of Columbia-based Costello Construction Inc. and one of four developers on the project.

When the Belvedere Restaurant Group (1 E. Chase St., 410-347-0888) lost Pauli Santi, aka Champagne Tony, it lost the chef its main dining room was named after.

Ouattara, a native of the Ivory Coast, has arrived from the Red Sage in Washington, where he was executive sous chef. He plans to focus on "contemporary American cuisine, emphasizing presentation as well as taste" at Truffles Restaurant at the Belvedere (the main dining room's new name as of May 1)

Food ** (2 stars) Service *** (3 stars) Atmosphere **1/2 (2 1/2 stars) Towson is an area that never seems to have as many good, reasonably sophisticated eating places as I think it should, given the disposable income of the people who live around there. One of the bright spots has al ways been Paolo's Ristorante, a local chain -- sorry, restaurant group -- that defined Cal-Ital for Baltimore in that trend's heyday. You remember: light, bright, fresh takes on Italian food in a contemporary, high-energy bistro atmosphere.

The Chesapeake, which was closed for business last week, will reopen under new management. The restaurant's owners have entered into a management contract with the Karzai family, whose restaurants in Baltimore include Tapas Teatro and The Helmand. Helmand Karzai, who is a partner in the restaurant group started by his father, Qayum Karzai, said that the family will soon release further details about the restaurant, including its menu and its new name. The family is working to complete interior renovations to the space in time for the annual Artscape festival, scheduled to begin on July 18. The Chesapeake's opening last June was greeted as a welcome return for the long-shuttered property on the corner of Charles and Lafayette streets, which had once housed a Baltimore dining institution, the Chesapeake Restaurant, which flourished in the 1950s and 1960s.  The restaurant property was purchased from the city in 2010, along with adjacent lots, for $2.5 million, by Station North Development Partners LLC developers Michael Shecter and Ernst Valery.

Fells Point is known for a lot of things - cobblestone streets, fun bars, seafood - but Italian fare is not among them. Anastasia, the newest offering from Kali's Restaurant Group, could change that. The restaurant, which opened in January in the Thames Street space vacated by Meli (also a Kali's Group venture), bills itself as an "Italian bistro" and also as an upscale nightclub. Those two identities don't fit together perfectly, but as a restaurant, Anastasia gets the important stuff - the food and service - just right.

Since its founding in 2011, the local Bagby Restaurant Group has quickly become a name patrons can trust, both in the dining room and at the bar. Its Harbor East operations - particularly Ten Ten and Fleet Street Kitchen - are examples of finely tuned and thoughtful restaurants with bar programs that match. In November, the group opened its first restaurant, Cunningham's, away from the city. The zip code may be different, but Bagby's hallmarks - fine execution, attention to detail, a stellar selection at the bar - were evident on a recent Saturday night in Towson City Center's newest restaurant.
