Sheldon is thrilled with his back-to-back wins and that he is "one step closer for a better future for myself and a brighter future for my family. " Josie, on the other hand, is wiping away tears as she justifies her throwing-Kristen-under-the-bus actions to a silent Lizzie. "I don't care what anyone thinks," she stammers. If you don't care what anyone thinks, then why are you crying?  Heading into the kitchen, Padma introduces Master Sushi Chef Katsuya Uechi. The challenge is to impress him with a sushi dish -- he urges the cheftestants to keep it simple.

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.

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.

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.

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)

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health ( This week, Ellen Loreck weighs in on sodium. According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, people should consume between 1,500 and 2,300 mgs of sodium per day. That's equal to about 2/3 to 1 teaspoon of salt, which isn't much. Most of the sodium comes from processed foods, so eating out becomes a challenge.

A few years ago, Billy Malkin decided there was a lack of high-quality sushi delivery along the Baltimore waterfront. So he convinced a friend, Eugene McDowell, to partner with him on a place of their own. Before opening the Sushi Place in Fells Prospect last July, Malkin and McDowell were not restaurant-industry veterans. They were sushi lovers and businessmen; both own local construction companies. Their business acumen shows. With personable service and a menu stacked with creative, well-executed sushi and Asian food, the Sushi Place has earned its considerable popularity.

Noodles. They're everywhere in Japan. Green noodles, white noodles, thick noodles, thin noodles.

They're often served in a broth with all other kinds of goodies - spinach, tempura shrimp, you name...
