When Sisson's (32-36 E. Cross St.) opens in February after extensive renovation, more will be changed than just the ownership and decor. The city's best-known Cajun restaurant will become a "Baltimore steakhouse," according to Thomas Cizauskas, one of the new owners. How will a Baltimore steakhouse be different from other steakhouses? I asked him. "It will be affordable," he said. Sisson's beef will come from a single Omaha ranch, and the restaurant plans to have its own butcher on site.

Now that Bill Aydlett, formerly chef and part-owner of Sisson's (36 E. Cross St.), has left, the kitchen has been taken over by Bill Rothwell. Rothwell has worked as a sous chef at Pierpoint, Sisson's and most recently at the Oregon Grille. He plans to broaden the brew pub's Cajun-Creole menu to include vegetarian and non-spicy offerings, more salads, more sandwiches and some crab dishes."There are things I'd like to have done before," he says, "but it was someone else's kitchen." He plans, for instance, to use larger shrimp in the shrimp Creole and "refine" the sauce.

People are talking about Sisson's, but they are saying all the wrong things.I've heard about its beer, made on the spot in the Sisson's micro-brewery and available in refillable half-gallon "growlers" and whopping Imperial pints. But as I'm not a beer buff, I didn't pay much attention. Its name also crops up when Cajun food is mentioned, but as blackened fish isn't my favorite dish, it was easy to give it a pass.So why hasn't anyone mentioned that Sisson's has turned into one of the best moderately-priced restaurants in Baltimore?

We know a lot about some of the big 2012 projects and almost nothing about others. But it's looking like 2012 could be the year of the comeback. After a long absence, the founder of the Baltimore's first brew pub is returning to the restaurant business, and by the time summer gets here, diners could be back at a new Donna's in Mount Vernon and a revived Werner's downtown. Until the last contractor leaves and the all of the inspectors have come through, restaurants tend to be reticent about specifics like opening dates.

So how did the new Heavy Seas Ale House happen? After all, Hugh Sisson, the Heavy Seas founder, had resisted businesses outside his brewery for years after he sold his shares in Sisson's, his first brewpub. Well, the new restaurant, which is expected to open sometime this Spring, has a new venue to thank for its creation: Leinenkugel's Beer Garden . Patrick Dahlgren, who'll be running the new pub, said that if out-of-state breweries, like Leinenkugel's, can license their name and open up a store-front in Baltimore, then it was time for a local like Heavy Seas to do the same.

Hugh Sisson is a local expert on boutique brews. He and his family opened Maryland's first brewpub, Sisson's, in South Baltimore in 1989. Six years later, he started Clipper City Brewing on Hollins Ferry Road, almost in the shadow of an old Halethorpe brewery that, over the years, turned out National, Carling, Heileman and Stroh's beers. Today, it's one of many small craft breweries that have sprung up around the nation to satisfy a growing thirst for high-quality beer. Sisson also serves as co-host along with Al Spoler of Cellar Notes, a weekly WYPR radio show that reviews wines.

Dr. Wendy Bohner has found a rural ribbon of calm in Baltimore City. It is the path along Stony Run. Three to four times a week when the weather is fair, she runs on it, most often leaving the pavement near Wyndhurst Avenue and Wilmslow Road, where the wood chips on one side of the wooded stream or the soft dirt on the other lead her into a hidden world. "I love it," she said. "It's a little gem of a place." Stony Run is a Jones Falls tributary. Its main artery begins on the tony grounds of the Elkridge Club off North Charles Street and runs south past the Bryn Mawr, Gilman and Friends schools.
