Pacific Coast (413 S. High St., 410-244-1185) is the latest restaurant to step into the Little Italy space once occupied by Tapabar and the short-lived Diner. Pacific Coast—with its fusion cuisine, including several crazily-named burgers like Paris Hilton, Led Zepplin, and Charlie Sheen—seems a match for this corner bistro setting. (If the burger names seem familiar, it's because the chef used to work at the now-defunct Hollywood Burger Bistro in Canton, which offered similar meat patties.) The menu also features appetizers, salads, reasonably priced entrées, and an assortment of sandwiches, including the Down South Wrap Blackened Chicken ($9), stuffed with chicken chunks, Swiss, sautéed onion, bacon, avocado, and chipotle ranch dressing. The 15-minute express lunch is a plus for area workers.
