Kyodai bills itself as Baltimore's only rotating sushi bar. The concept is simple, if at first unintentionally amusing: You sit at the bar with your napkin, chopsticks, soy, wasabi and ginger. The sushi-tenders roll up various concoctions, cut them, usually into quarters, plate them, and place them on a shiny silver conveyor belt that chugs along the inside perimeter of the bar. And as they pass, you reach up and pluck down plates that look right for you. No menu. No wondering what it might look like.

Our dinner at the Charred Rib's new and more spacious location - half a mile away from its old location on York Road - didn't start off as well as it might have. We had had reservations for a week, so we weren't happy about being put in the Outer Siberia room behind the bar - a brown box of a room with no pictures on the walls. Of course, not everyone can sit in the two pretty main dining rooms when the restaurant is this busy. But we wanted to.Not only was our dining room ugly, it was noisy.

As 2006 kicks off, a couple of Baltimore hangouts are hoping to combine the old with the new. In the basement of the Belvedere Hotel, Kamikazis has just opened where Kobe Teppan closed last November. It, too, is a sushi/hibachi Japanese restaurant. And it, too, is hoping to hook B-more's late-night crowd. But Kamikazis manager Hillary Herlehy says she and owner James C. Foster hope to ratchet things up a notch. To start with, Herlehy says they've tried to give the place a slightly more "energetic feel."

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is one of the Harbor East residents celebrating its 10th anniversary in Baltimore this year. Steak rules here, and you'd be foolish to disobey. I haven't had a more satisfying rib-eye than the one Fleming's recently served me. I loved looking at it and eating every robust bite. Fleming's signature steak preparation involves seasoning with kosher salt and black pepper and finishing with butter and parsley. This makes the beef, USDA prime, both outstandingly flavorful and gorgeous.

Third in a three-part series. There's no denying that soft-shell crabs are a little weird. They're slimy and slippery when raw. Cooked in a sandwich, their spindly legs and grabby claws poke out from the slices of bread and make some people wonder, "Do you seriously think I'm going to eat that?" And although even some lifelong crab-loving Marylanders believe soft-shell crabs to be a different species than the well-known blue crab, they are in fact the same creature. Soft crabs are simply blue crabs that have recently molted, shedding their hard shells to reveal a paper-thin exoskeleton that hardens within hours.

SAMBUCA FRIEND SQUASH The more casual side at Cinghiale - the enoteca - keeps getting more accessible. So get a plate of late-summer bliss - firm yellow squash enveloped in a crispy batter, pleasingly salty with just the faintest whiff of anise. Better yet, have them as an accompaniment to executive chef Julian Marucci's Roman fried chicken (R.F.C.), where the tempura-like batter seems to be suspended in air over the juicy skin beneath ($16). Eat it outside, with a glass of Frascati. Try the Sambuca Fried Squash at Cinghiale, 822 Lancaster St. 410-547-8282.

If you like the Ravens and you like sushi, you should be twice as happy about the recent signing of free agent cornerback Samari Rolle, whose name sounds like it would taste delicious on a plate with wasabi and pickled ginger. In honor of the newest Raven, we pondered just what a sushi Samari Roll should look and taste like. Here are some of our suggestions. Pick your favorite, then submit your own ideas. Tempura eggplant and sauted purple onion, to match Samari's new uniform color, with eel (hopefully he's slippery on the field)

In the world of Japanese steakhouses, showing off is everything. Cleavers are tossed, fires started, food thrown at the mouths of eager diners. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but we think all the drama and laughter make for a great time. At Lin's Hibachi, which opened in Havre de Grace in early February, the showmanship was on point, though service from the background crew - those not directly involved with the cooking - faltered occasionally. But thanks to food that was both nicely cooked and delivered with a laugh, dinner at Lin's was a satisfying blast.

Diners who have never walked through the doors of a Japanese restaurant, as well as those who are familiar with Far Eastern cuisine, will find the owner of Niko Japanese Restaurant eager to please. Howard Park opened his restaurant in Ellicott City in February. "These days, a lot of customers come to try sushi, which they've never tasted. I will explain Japanese food and try to make them something special if they request it," Park said. His parents hailed from Osaka, Japan, but Park was born in Korea.

Noodles. They're everywhere in Japan. Green noodles, white noodles, thick noodles, thin noodles. The Japanese inhale them like french fries.Rice and sushi are the more well-known staples of the Japanese diets, but if you're on the run, noodles are the way to go.Soba noodles, made from soba flour, are so popular that some Japanese eat them three times a day. They're often served in a broth with all other kinds of goodies - spinach, tempura shrimp, you name...
