’Bama transplants put down roots in Baltimore and slow-developed a slow-cook barbecue masterpiece, which they will truck to your home if you can’t come to them. But go to them. It’s a nice house.

Hightopps Backstage Grille

2306 York Road, Timonium, (410) 560-7101, hightoppsbackstagegrille.com

$$, L, D

The conveyer belt of fresh sushi just turns round and round, and you pick up whatever you want, paying for each plate according to its color. Kaiten, it’s called. Why settle for stationary sushi?

Linwoods

Romantic ambiance in a stone farmhouse serving a nice array of American favorites, from the lobster roll to a lamb chop with hickory-smoked winter squash and spiced pear chutney. Fireplaces abound and the wine list is something special.

Suburban House

$$, P, B, L, D, Br

This Pikesville landmark is the place to see how matzo ball soup, chopped liver, smoked salmon and whitefish, latkes (potato pancakes), blintzes, reubens, rainbow cake, and all other manner of Jewish delicacies are done correctly.
