  1. Schultz's Crabhouse was named a recipient of a James Beard "America's Classics" award today, one of five restaurants in America. Their website is here - I had originally posted the above in response to a request by Anthony Bourdain about where to eat in Baltimore (he specified 'no fine dining'). My-T-Fine was the most awesome Sno-Cone stand I've ever seen in my life, but it closed.
  2. The Top Jewelers is a small, family run jewelry store on South Arlington on Columbia Pike and S. Barton Street. It is across from Penrose next to Celtic House (and not to be confused with the Tops China on the backside of the strip mall). They have a surprisingly large and beautiful selection and are just the nicest people ever. Michael is the gentleman who runs the store now. They are excellent on repairs as well. Did a better job repairing my Tissot watch than the manufacturer. If they don’t have what you are looking for, they often will let you go through catalogs and order for you – think silver baby cups and the like. Keep them in mind when you are shopping small businesses! Liz Gill
  3. Happy to report an opening instead of a closing: Casa Rosada Artisan Gelato just opened a week ago. They're located in a little pink house on the 100 block of South Payne, with a cozy enclosed patio in the rear. The owners are an Argentinian couple and their son - very nice people. They offer a variety of interesting flavors, including a few soy-based options and some fruit sorbets. The PBJ was very good - a (real) banana base with chunks of peanut butter. We also enjoyed a three-berry flavor, which was loaded with fruit. Several flavors feature alcohol, including the sambayon - Marsala/Port blend. This is the perfect spot to head for a dessert after a meal at La Fromagerie, IMHO
  4. If you miss the rum buns, you won't have to wait much longer. Bethesda Magazine reports that O'Donnell's is opening a market in Rockville.
  5. Late night this past Saturday, I went with a group to the recently opened Hersh's Pizza & Drinks in the South edge of Federal Hill. The chef, Josh Hershkovitz, who used to work at Charleston & Petit Louis, opened the place with his sister to serve Neapolitan style pizza. They also feature housemade sausage and pasta on the menu. Their menu features a good selection of beer as well as an interesting array of cocktails. I started with a Fernando, made with Fernet Branca Galliano, & Cinzano. We chatted with Stephanie, the chef's sister and co-owner, a little. She recommended the cheese pizza with fried eggplant and sausage. We also tried the kale & pistachio pizza and the white clam pizza. The crust on their pizza was outstanding- thin, with a little bite and chewinesss. I read in the City Paper that they do not do lunch as the starter takes 24 hours to be ready. My favorite was the kale & pistachio with fontina and a lot of garlic. The fried eggplant also makes for a great topping. They had run out of their pasta that evening, but they let us try some of their Berkshire pork ragu- quite good. As this place is a short walk from my house, I look forward to making this a regular hangout. 1843-45 Light Street Baltimore MD 21230 443-438-4948
  6. Had a light dinner at Hibiscus Thai Cuisine in the same shopping center as Reston's Home Depot. It was our first visit. The inside looked nicely appointed and clean, but the the patio was an easy call on a beautiful evening. We split spring rolls and had salads. I had the spicy beef and +1 had the crispy duck and sweet mango. Both had a lot of flavor, acid, and spice. I haven't run across fried duck slices in a Thai salad, but it was pretty good. Looking forward to trying more of their menu as it'd be nice to find a good local Thai place. We're a little too far from Thai by Thai to go their with any regularity.
  7. In the battle of the barbecue in Cockeysville, I'd take Andy Nelson's over Corner Stable any day.
  8. Last night, after a quick 2 dozen oysters at Hank's ($1 each!!!), I met up with Kay and we were looking for a hamburger. Annie's popped to mind. Don't ask why, but something totally camp and retro was perfect. We stepped in and were seated in the front glassed in area. Kay was only one of 2 women at the time, but by the end of our meal, at least 3 other women walked in. So the male female ration was about 90 to 5. I ordered the chopped steak and Kay a hamburger. My chopped steak came with two sides so I opted for salad (out of a bag croutons and out of a large plastic jar Italian salad dressing) and Green Beans (out of a can supposedly in tomato sauce but seemed more like a splash of tomato juice to a huge can of beans. Its been a long time where I have had green beans that melted in my mouth with no resistance to tooth whatsoever. The Chopped steak came out as a sirloin and I was by then too tired to speak up. It was tough and devoid of flavor. A-1 sauce improved it immensely. Kay's burger, however, was damn good! On a nicely chewy bun, it was a large house made patty of pretty flavorful stuff. At $7.95 it was also a good deal. The steak fries, while out of a plastic bag, were also quite good. The drinks, a Tanquerey Martini and a Manhattan were on the other side of bad. Still in all, a fun evening was had. I would go back for the burger late at night, and hope that they can't screw up a bloody mary.
  9. Stopped in to this pleasantly clean and bright little place yesterday just for a cup of (unremarkable) coffee. There's a limited menu of Ethiopian standards, with more available on the weekends, including kitfo. But thank goodness the woman I talked with told me that they will not serve kitfo raw, as I'd be mighty annoyed to head up to Gaitherspatch on a precious weekend only to find that they cook one of my favorite raw dishes. At any rate, they also have plastic tubs of spices (including berbere) and lentils for sale, and large packages of injera (made from teff and wheat flour). Anyone actually eaten here?
