Nearly everyone has a warm spot in his heart for the classic Italian restaurant -- the big, casual neighborhood place that serves giant bowls of garlicky shrimp scampi and generous slabs of lasagna. Put that restaurant on a main street near a courthouse, and you almost can't go wrong, especially if your spacious dining room is next to a nice-looking bar and you hire unusually nice and helpful people to wait tables.

By MARY MAUSHARD and MARY MAUSHARD,Staff Writer Cafe Manet, 1020 S. Charles St., (410) 837-7006. Although primarily a carryout, the cafe has added 10 tables and created a pretty little place to have an inexpensive dinner. The food isn't unforgettable, but it's certainly decent enough at these prices. The menu is primarily Italian. Try such dishes as cannelloni alla Rossini, a standout, the fresh fish of the day or a delicious ratatouille. Surprisingly, considering its size, you can get wine here. $ -- inexpensive. (Last reviewed 7/92.) @ ELIZABETH LARGEStaff Writer Saigon Palace, 609-B Taylor Ave., Annapolis, (410) 268-4463. At Saigon Palace you'll never mistake the food for any other sort of Asian cooking than Vietnamese. The French influence is obvious, although completely incorporated into the dishes. Try the grilled pork on rice crepe, Shaking beef flavored with Grand Marnier and sauteed in butter, or beef in grape leaves with chopped peanut sauce. This is one Vietnam restaurant where you may have to ask for your food more spicy, not less. $$ -- moderate. (Last reviewed 7/92.) @ ELIZABETH LARGEStaff Writer | July 25, 1992
Bay Cafe, 2809 Boston St., (410) 522-3377. Want to see Baltimore in the '90s? What was and is -- from one comfortable place? Head for the Bay Cafe. At this time of year, the Bay Cafe is an open-air restaurant with more tables outside than in. Its atmosphere, clientele and menu are eclectic, at the most conservative. But the food is surprisingly good for a place where even the wine is served in plastic cups. The swordfish kebab and shrimp scampi were satisfying to both the eye and the palate.

Akbar. 823 N. Charles St.Akbar is a small, pleasant Indian restaurant with a below-street level entrance and about a dozen tables. Akbar serves an all-you-can-eat luncheon buffet for $6.95. On the day we were there, it included a large salad; Dal, a lentil soup; rice and about four other hot dishes, which were not labeled. From the lunch menu, we ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees and breads. The Bengan Bharta was our hands-down favorite, a blend of eggplant, tomatoes and spices. It had a lovely, somewhat unusual, taste with a bit of fire to it. $$moderate (Last visited 8/90.

Want to see Baltimore in the '90s? What was and is -- in one comfortable place? Head for the Bay Cafe, the warehouse turned condos in Canton, the working-class neighborhood turned upscale.Even more than two years of wandering through the old-and-new of Baltimore restaurants hadn't prepared my husband and me for the bio-diversity of the Bay Cafe.Walking along the restaurant's promenade, we thought we must be among the oldest people there. Not comforting for two fortysomethings.Yet, as the night wore on, we realized that there really was a considerable number of fiftysomethings, sixtysomethings and even-older-somethings dining amid the youngsters.

We're probably not the only ones with a teen-age daughter who has dinner out more often than we do. Just about any excuse, and she's restaurant-bound -- usually with her boyfriend.So it was no surprise that we were expected to take her to dinner when she turned 18 recently. Although, as excuses go for dinner out, that one was pretty good.We chose for the occasion a place highly recommended by one of her friends -- a pub! One might wonder about teen-agersturning into pub crawlers, but fortunately this one is the type of pub one might find in Ireland -- family-friendly.

Perry Hall has a new resident. Raffy's Restaurant is set to open today at Belair and Silver Spring roads. It's the latest restaurant venture of Dr. Jack Gordon, a local orthopedic surgeon, who has long been a partner in the Bayou Cafe at White Marsh. Gordon's partners this time are Raffaele Mazzone and his grandmother, Yolanda Mazzone. He says the three felt there was a lack of family restaurants in the Perry Hall area and hope their eatery will fill the bill. Built at one end of the Perry Hall Crossing shopping center, Gordon says Raffy's has both an official dining room and a bar/lounge area.

Anew light is about to shine on the corner of North Charles and Biddle streets. Make that lots of little twinkle lights as Sammy's Trattoria opens its doors there. Those lights are some of the few changes owner Sam Curreri is making to the place that used to be known as Limoges. Curreri says the space was already beautiful and all he wanted to do was to give it "a more romantic, relaxed feel." So he's adding small white lights around some of the windows, lots of soft votive candles on the tables and twinkle lights in the trees outside.

Never have our restaurants been so sophisticated and so varied. And never has service been so lousy. For every restaurant like Hampton's in the Harbor Court Hotel, which got as high a ranking for service as for quality of food in the latest Zagat Survey of Baltimore-Annapolis eating places, you have 10 others where the help makes you wait for a table even with a reservation, ignores you after you've been seated, forgets to bring the steak sauce and...

The historic Pikes Theater in Pikesville has taken on a new life as a market, cafe and full-service restaurant, DiPasquale's at the Pikes. The venerable old space has been used to full advantage by the new owners, who have decorated it in cheerful reds, accented with blond wood and shining chrome and brass art-deco fixtures. The lighting, worthy of a feature film, casts a warm glow over everything. The owners have thought of everything, too. There is a great-looking little market, which sells wine, pre-packaged Italian delicacies, such as panetone, and imported cooking supplies, such as vinegar, olive oil and pasta.

Some things about Ocean City may change: The beach may get replenished, noise curfews be enforced and high rises multiply, but if I have my way, one thing will remain the same -- the Marina Deck.With its cheerful checkered tablecloths, panoramic view of the bay and fine seafood, the restaurant manages to be both a hot spot for noisy families and romance-seeking couples.Arriving on a bustling Thursday night, we were impressed with the service, especially since we had two toddlers in tow. The waiter made it a point to show us the children's menu, offered us Styrofoam cups for the little ones and didn't even complain when the kids decided to rip them up rather than use them.

You know just what you like when you eat at one of the top restaurants in the Baltimore area. You have your favorites and you stick with them. But wait, what's that delicious-looking entree the guy at the next table is eating? And how about that gorgeous mile-high cake that's being wheeled by on the dessert cart? What's that all about?We thought it might be fun to find out just what Baltimore diners are ordering when they go out to eat -- to help us all expand our dining repertoire. And after talking to executive chefs, chefs, sous-chefs, owners, managers and maitre d's at a number of places around town and just beyond, we think we have the skinny on favorite foods at some of the favorite restaurants in the Baltimore area.
