Don't look for the Roland Park Bakery & Deli in Roland Park. The combination bakery and counter shop is in Hampden now and doing well, where it appears to have filled a niche between the fancy fare of the neighborhood's new spots and the slapdash grub you can still find at the old haunts. A longtime fixture of Roland Park life, Anita Ward's combination bakery and sandwich shop reopened last year on Chestnut Street after 27 years in the Roland Park Shopping Center. The move wasn't entirely voluntary.

The dish: turkey and cheddar wrap The popular Charles Street mainstay, David and Dad's, has opened a cafe inside the Enoch Pratt Free Library 's Southeast Anchor branch in Highlandtown. The Highlandtown location has nothing like the full menu at the restaurant's 334 N. Charles St. digs or the Express shop at 1 N. Charles St. The library location is stocked with meals prepared at the parent shop and really feels more like what it's meant to be: a quick-stop coffee shop.

If you're a fan of big chain sub shops, you've probably got your favorite brand, one or more favorite sandwiches and your own peculiar combination of add-ons — like extra cheese, more olives, or three fistfuls of pickles. After that, there's not a whole heck of a lot to say about the franchises, because if you're inclined to visit, you've very likely checked them out already. And have, moreover, made up your mind. But the Subway at 706 Reisterstown Road in Pikesville offers specials you won't see in most other locations.

If the first three pillars of restaurant success are location, next up would be the kitchen, with service following in short order. If the location happens to be The Block — Baltimore's notorious XXX district — the choice of a name might take on special significance, too. Crazy John's is nestled between a strip club called Lust and a chicken place that sells liquor. It's a gaudy, bustling, short-order haunt popular among city employees who dress up for work and those whose work involves undressing.

The website listed the address as 300 E. Lombard St., and sure enough, when we arrived, a prominent sign assured us we had landed at those very coordinates. But there was no sign, literally or figuratively, of Rosina Gourmet. Pluckily, we entered the office building that didn't look anything like a gourmet sandwich shop. If ever a place resembled an office lobby and not a restaurant, this is tit. In fact it looks exactly like the Alex Brown Realty Inc. office building it purports to be and not a sandwich shop at all. After a moment of complete disorientation we asked a kind receptionist what happened to the restaurant.
