BJ Ryan's BANC House satiates cravings for both fresh coastal catches and savory wood-smoked meats that exude Southern charm. The slow-smoked pulled pork calls to taste buds from the plate where it sits slathered in homemade sauce and dry rub, and savory shrimp and grits blend dry rub and cheddar flavors. The talented chefs pay a special tribute to fresh crab, which can be added to any entree, steaming dishes such as the Banc crab cake, dungeness, Alaskan king, or blue crabs, which come dressed in homemade roasted-garlic sauce, ginger caramel, or inner-harbor spice.

Not to be overshadowed by the succulent food, BJ Ryan's dark, varnished wood and black-lacquered furnishings effuse a low-key, yet carefully kept dining environment marked by old photos and broad chalkboards listing the day?s specials.

Cooking has always been a fact of life for Wilson, Marcelo, and Jose Rodriguez. Two decades ago, the three brothers opened their first restaurant together in their home country of Ecuador. Wilson and Marcelo continued to run the place while Jose traveled to their grandfather's homeland of Spain and received some formal culinary training. Jose's studies eventually brought him to Connecticut, where his brothers joined him and started the next chapter in their partnership by founding Cafe Madrid Wine and Tapas Bar.

At Cafe Madrid, the Rodriguez brothers draw inspiration from culinary traditions throughout the Mediterranean. That being said, Spanish and Latin influences are the strongest by far. Sharable tapas are a highlight here, and they include everything from beef empanadas to platters of imported meats and cheeses. The restaurant's international inspirations are more apparent in entr?es such as the Italian-style ossobuco and the French-style cassoulet.

A rustic vibe characterizes Cafe Madrid's dining room, thanks to the earthenware floor tiles, wrought iron chandelier, and rich wood accents. There's even a wall made from reclaimed pieces of wine cases, which effectively splits the main room into two seating sections. Latin-inspired ceramics, paintings, and Lite-Brite boxes further add to the restaurant's distinctive character.

With a white-picket fence around its perimeter and an American Flag waving from its bay windows, Boulevard 18 Bistro & Wine Bar might look like a great place to raise a family. But instead of embodying the American Dream, this 1860s Georgian landmark holds a little piece of Paris inside. Chef and co-owner David Raymer transports palates across the Atlantic by pairing more than 80 French wines with traditional entrees. And, much like in a Parisian bistro's kitchen, the focus here is on the craft. Chef Raymer creates country pâté and cures gravlax in house, and even stuffs his own sausages with flavors such as merguez or boudin blanc. The result: French classics with a modern twist, such as grilled mustard-seed-crusted leg of lamb with ratatouille or a duck confit salad.

An antique map of Paris covers the wall of the dining room so that guests never forget where the flavors they're tasting came from. But it also helps tie the room together. The map's curving, cobblestone avenues guide eyes toward the scarlet booths and hardwood accents. Boulevard 18 Bistro & Wine Bar also offers a seasonal dining patio with views of the village fire station where Chef Raymer buys the flames to fill the fire pit.
