The space on Charles Street that for so long housed Gampy’s has been given a thorough makeover and emerged as Marie Louise Bistro. Opened by Marie Ransome of Marie Louise Catering (and the old Ransome’s bar in Federal Hill), the bistro is split into two levels. Tile floors, stucco walls, wrought-iron chandeliers overhead and petite marble-topped bistro tables all contribute to the European ambience. On the first floor, a Euro-style coffee bar serves up teas and coffees along with exquisite fruit tarts, croissants, pastries and cakes. A café area farther back offers a full menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and entrées, all with a French/Italian/ Mediterranean flair— look for everything from a Mediterranean chopped salad to a chicken breast with artichokes to beef tenderloin. An upper-level mezzanine holds a bar and lounge area. Open seven days for lunch and dinner. 904 N. Charles St., 410-385-9946
