AbacrombieThis subterranean dining room across the street from the symphony hall has always housed good restaurants. When chef Sonny Sweetman departed Baltimore last year, many feared that his Abacrombie was gone for good. Thankfully, Jerry Pellegrino (chef/owner of Corks) has jumped in and reinvented the place. Working with chef Jesse Sandlin, they’ve reopened and reinvigorated the establishment. The simple, chic rooms look pretty much the same, but the menu now tempts with items like steak tartare, pan-fried pompano, rack of lamb, duck confit and a porterhouse steak for two. And, knowing Pellegrino’s passion for good wines, expect some top-notch choices in that department, too. Open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday, and Sunday for brunch.  58 W. Biddle St., 410-837-3630
