Atelier de Culinaire, a new restaurant associated with Stratford University’s Hospitality and Culinary Program, opened recently in Little Italy.

It’s prime time to grab great produce, like these raspberries from the Fells Point Farmers Market, which takes place on Saturdays in Broadway Square.

By the normal standards of Baltimore’s restaurant scene, the week we have coming up is a quiet one. But that doesn’t mean it’s boring. With Bastille Day on the horizon and local restaurants revamping their menus to showcase summer ingredients, there’s a lot of promising events.

My daughter Jane, who turned 18 last month and got a tattoo and a vape to celebrate, is a big girl now. As I write this, she will only be living at home for another 28 days and then she will be off to the Catskills to attend a school that advertises itself as “a place to think.” She is ready for that. She acquired her notebooks even before her shower caddy and extra-long twin sheets.

June, Genie

At the start of the summer, the end of the school year, who isn’t full of the instinct to self-improve, to start new protocols, to switch things up? Maybe it’s the long days or the explosion of nature into bloom. Remember the musical Carousel?  “June is bustin’ out all over”? That feelin’.  I was ready to bust out of Baltimore, too, with things heating up, summer coming on too strong and too sudden.
