Best Greek Restaurant

Black Olive

814 S. Bond St., (410) 276-7141, www.theblackolive.com

OK, so it's kind of spendy, but whenever we want to relive our past trips to Greece--my don't we sound jet set--we head to the Black Olive. The tender, never chewy grilled octopus transports us back to Athens, and the grilled lobster reminds us that crustaceans don't have to be soaking in butter to elicit a hearty yum. Add to that a plethora of combo platters, whole fish that is so fresh and simply prepared you'll feel like a mermaid, and intriguing vegetarian dishes, and we're hooked. Of course, the waiters that can tell you everything about the sea creatures you are about to eat don't hurt either.
