Maybe it was all those fishy lunches I ate as a kid, but on summer afternoons I have a yen for a tuna-salad sandwich. I know there are upscale versions of this sandwich out there that mix chunks of high-quality tuna with walnuts and grapes, or with fennel, tarragon and capers. But on this go-round I kept it simple: canned tuna salad on rye with lettuce and tomato, served at downtown eateries. During a sunny noon hour when tourists were meandering through Harborplace, office workers were dodging Redwood Street construction crews, and the lunchtime throngs filled Lexington Market, I went fishing for tuna-salad sandwiches.

The first incarnation of Kader Camara's Cafe Mocha was a small shop on Howard Street's Antique Row. There, customers had the joy of discovery. Maybe they would come in for an investigatory cup of cappuccino and a pastry and leave with some of Camara's healthful cafe fare. Before long, Camara's food, especially his sandwiches, many of them sprinkled with North African or Caribbean influences, developed a good reputation. Last fall, Camara, a native of Guinea, moved Cafe Mocha into the renovated Railway Express building.

The '90s have caught up with Hampden, which may be good or bad depending on your point of view. Here's McCabe's, a neighborhood bar known for its hamburgers, serving its tuna salad with a "light balsamic vinaigrette." And that tuna salad is blackened tuna steak salad.McCabe's reopened recently after being closed for two years. It's a fairly lengthy time to be closed for renovations, but owners Chip and Lauren Miller both worked at other jobs and wanted to do the remodeling themselves on their days off.I can't quite remember what McCabe's looked like before, but the general effect is the same -- a bar on one side, the pleasant dining room on the other.

Paella -- hot off the grill Never mind the burgers or steak. Next time you're looking for a dish you can make on the grill, try paella. Although we usually make paella on the stove top, this Spanish dish got its start in Valencia, Spain, as a communal meal for fieldworkers who couldn't go home for lunch, according to the USA Rice Federation. The workers cooked their paella on an open fire, adding whatever meat and vegetables were available. Originally it did not contain sausage or seafood, but as the dish migrated to other regions, those ingredients were added.

Iam pleased to be able to recommend the Stables Country Kitchen in Westminster. However, I would advise you to consult a cardiologist before you try this no-frills, high-cholesterol eatery. The Country Kitchen occupies a small two-story house, clad in yellow siding and decorated with fading American pennants. It sits at the well-traveled intersection of East Main Street and Maryland Route 97 on the outskirts of downtown Westminster, and is connected with the full-service Stables Restaurant and Lounge.

Wrapping up another week's sports media notes while wondering why I don't hear Allan Sherman's "God Bless You, Jerry Mendelbaum" along with other seasonal favorites on the radio: Didn't it seem a bit odd Wednesday while ESPN was reporting the twists and turns of Bill Parcells' apparent return to the NFL that we didn't actually see Parcells himself? After all, he does work for ESPN. It speaks to the way some sports figures end up moving between being part of the media and the subject of media reports.

Hold the chicken salad - and the international incident. Turns out Gov. Martin O'Malley did not serve Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert an unkosher meal. O'Malley had Olmert over to the governor's mansion for lunch the other day, when the prime minister was in Annapolis for (using the current geopolitical shorthand for "comically abbreviated Middle East peace conference") Annapolis. With reporters hungry for details, the governor's press office fed the beast: O'Malley served chicken salad sandwiches and a cheese plate.

Here's a promise the dining-out crowd may love to hear: It'll be the best place to eat in the area. That's what the owner/chef of Canton's newest restaurant is vowing. Ted Stelzenmuller certainly knows East Baltimore restaurants. He's worked for the last few years in the vicinity, first at Red Fish, and then at Salt. If all goes as planned, starting tomorrow you'll be able to see whether he lives up to that promise, when he's set to open the doors of Jack's Bistro. OK. His name is Ted. Yet, his eatery is called Jack's.

A well-known Baltimore City resident has moved to the 'burbs. After closing its Lancaster Street location a year ago, Victor's Cafe now can be found in Timonium. Owner Victor DiVivo says he was forced to leave his waterfront location because of plans to build a Four Seasons Hotel on that spot. But he wasn't about to leave the restaurant business. And he decided on the old Donna's space in the Timonium Crossing shopping center because the parking was easy. And free. He describes the space itself as a "typical cafe, very comfortable, very cozy."

If you're up on the scuttlebutt, you know the restaurant at the Woman's Industrial Exchange is about to reopen. You know that the interior has been almost totally revamped. It's modern industrial now, with lots of light greens. The famous black and white checked floor is about the only original element that remains. And that includes the name. When the new place opens, it will be known as Chef's Express. The title brings its own nostalgia with it for new owner Jerry Edwards. Jerry says that was the name of his first business, a little sandwich shop he opened in Towson 24 years ago. That shop has since closed, but Jerry Edwards' Chef's Expressions catering business is flourishing.

Mama Leah's adheres to dietary laws that are thousands of years old, but it doesn't neglect the modern-day dietary Bible known as Atkins, either. This kosher pizza joint on Reisterstown Road will gladly make your pizzas on low-carb crusts. And if Atkins isn't your particular dietary religion, there are also lactose-free pizzas with no cheese, pizzas with whole-wheat crusts, and white pizzas with lots of cheese but no tomato sauce. Not that Mama Leah's is so concerned with healthful eating.

Sylvan Allan Hoffman, who worked nearly 60 years as a pharmacist and then in his retirement found a second career at age 79 teaching reading to pupils at a Baltimore County elementary school, died Monday of heart failure at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was 82 and lived in Owings Mills. The moment the first- and second-graders at Deer Park Elementary School in Owings Mills saw Mr. Hoffman's Ford Taurus pulling up to the school parking lot, they would become restless with anticipation.

PUT THE salt and pepper on the raw hamburger, then form the meat into patties. Rub the steak with a dab of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, then put it on the grill. Remember that when you are grilling, your best friend is an instant-read thermometer; it can tell you when things are done. These are some of the bits of cooking advice that I have been attempting to pass along to my sons, 24 and 19 years old. As with most forms of father-child communication, I am never quite sure what sinks in and what sails past them.
