Why We Go: Valentino's is open nearly 24 hours with a menu that features something to suit whatever mood you are in. And the people-watching is excellent.
What We Eat: The seafood Maryland, a wonderfully creamy mix of Gulf shrimp, lump crabmeat, and sea scallops sautéed in Alfredo sauce and lathered atop fettuccine.
What We'd Change: The décor. Although we dig its 1920s silent-film vibe, it could do with an upgrade.
