  1. If you are in need of a place to meet between DC and Baltimore- my favorite lately is House of India off Snowden River Pkwy in Columbia. I have only explored the veg side of the menu but it has all been really good. The palak paneer haunts my dreams with large pieces of paneer and creamy spinach. The channa masala and other veg entrees have been delicious as well. There is a menu for 2 that also includes naan, soup and pakora for $40 a really good deal considering entrees are about $15. The meat version is a little bit more. The staff are also very nice.
  2. "Lupa, Restaurant that Replaced Petit Louis in Columbia, To Close this Weekend after a Year in Business" by Sarah Meehan on baltimoresun.com This was in the former Red Pearl space, which was in the former Jessie Wong's Hong Kong space.
  3. I'm always on the lookout for the remote, mysterious, and dangerous parts of our world and the Darién Gap between Panama and Columbia is certainly one of them. I heard about this on NPR: Jun 22, 2016 - "Via Cargo Ships and Jungle Treks, Africans Dream of Reaching the U.S." by Carrie Kahn on npr.org Refugees from Africa are making their way through the impossibly rugged terrain and braving confrontation with FARC and drug lords. I had never thought of South/Central America as a destination for refugees from so far away. I also didn't know about the 19,000 mile-long Pan-American
  4. Any recommendations that are new and interesting in Columbia? Went to Iron Bridge, which was lovely. Looked at the Dining Guide, but it hasn't been updated (there are repeats on the list, Iron Wine and Bangkok Garden listed twice) recently. Anyone have any suggestions? Casual-ish? Victoria still any good? S --- Victoria Gastro Pub (dracisk)
  5. Never even heard of this place until Sunday night, when I was taken there. It's a combination wine store/bar/restaurant in Columbia off Rt. 108 in a pleasant location across from a huge field. They have a menu of small plates items (with a few almost entree size things too), most of which we tried were very good. However, the main draw is, of course, the wine. Glass prices were about on par for this area, but the real deal is the bottles. Any bottle from the wall shelves around the restaurant (this is basically the entire wine list) are only $5 corkage. Prices and selection are pretty nice. Af
  6. Is there really no thread on Royal Taj restaurant here yet? I know HowChow has written about it in his blog, but I couldn't find a thread here. I was just introduced to Royal Taj recently when I headed there with a few friends for a weeknight dinner. The design itself is surprisingly upscale for an Indian restaurant, but the real draws are the excellent food and the incredible service. We started with complimentary chutneys served with something crispy to eat them on (papadum I think?). They were your typical chutneys - an onion & tomato one that had a nice bit of heat, the cilantro sa
  7. Attending the Preakness Stakes in Pimilco with family on Saturday. Looking for a post-race dinner at around 8:30 pm somewhere in the vicinity or on the way back to DC. Woodberry Kitchen is booked solid, as expected. I've never been to Mt. Washington Tavern or Nickel Taphouse. Ellicott City might be an option with Tersiguel's or the new Portalli's. But I'm a little concerned about whether French would be too upscale after spending all afternoon outside. I don't know much about Portalli's. I know parking anywhere in this area is difficult. Iron Bridge Wine Company would be nice, but it's a
  8. That place is such a treat! Going to high school in Kings Contrivance, I probably ate there 4 out of the 5 weekdays for lunch! ABSOLUTELY the best Italian coldcut I've ever had! High quality meats and they heat the roll in the oven before they construct the masterpiece.
  9. This is the 6 year old reincarnation of what used to be the Last Chance Saloon, in the Oakland Mills Shopping Center on the east side of old school Columbia. It is a neighborhood pub. It is homey. Food is acceptable, but not creative. Food can be hit or miss though. Service is ok. Fairly inexpensive. Usually have 10 to 12 beers on tap. A rotating selection of maybe 50 to 100 bottled beers is good. It's cheaper than Victoria Gastro Pub. It serves booze as well, possibly unlike Frisco Taphouse. It has ample parking, unlike those two other places. Is it someplace I would seek out to dine? No
  10. New kitchens come on little Gat feet. They come cooking beside Route 100 starting with lunches and then dinner's on. With apologizes to CarlS, we can announce that Robert Gadsby has unveiled a new restaurant in the heart of Howard County. His team is doing it quietly. You might say they're creeping in like the fog. The new menu kicked off today at lunch. The restaurant is Gadsby's Bar American. It's in the space that used to be -- and still has signs for -- Greystone Grill just off Rte 100 in the Columbia 100 development near Centre Park Road. You can still get directions from the G
  11. Is Cafe de Paris still open? It used to be a great pretty romantic place when I lived in Columbia a few years ago. I tried calling the number on their website, 410-997-3904, to order a gift certificate for a couple moving to Columbia soon and I got nothing. Anyone know what's up? Thanks.
  12. We are meeting friends from Towson for dinner. The requirements are: somewhat halfway between, not spicy {if they want spicy foods, I know where to go}, nothing fancy or involved, nice beer/drinks wold be a plus. Nothing too heavy either. Open Mondays. There are places in the dining guide but most of the posts are old. I looked at Facci's website but it had annoying loud music and no way yo turn it off. So they are out.
  13. Noodles Corner is a small restaurant in a strip mall in Columbia, wedged between Mango Grove and Pub Dog. If you are up in this area and looking for decent Chinese, give it a try, because they have a second Taiwanese-based authentic menu in addition to the regular Americanized stuff. You may need to ask for the "other" menu, which is written in English IIRC. I've only eaten there once, and it was a few months ago so I don't remember in detail what we ordered - I think it included the three cup chicken and possibly the bamboo with shredded pork, plus two other dishes that I don't recall.
  14. http://www.thealehousecolumbia.com/ With the addition of The Ale House, Columbia now has a nice selection of places really focused on their beer programs and I would venture to say that The Ale House has become my favorite. The description on their website summarizes them well: Join us for a delicious dinner, then stay for craft beers, cocktails, and live entertainment in our three indoor bars or on the spacious outdoor patio. Led by Executive Chef Juan T. Valdez, the menu offers a modern take on American classics as well as inventive new items. Equally as exciting is the impressive list
  15. The Red Pearl has opened on the Columbia lakefront. It's a Chinese place that fills the old Jesse Wong's Hong Kong site next to Sushi Sono. I haven't been yet, but they have a Sichuan menu in Chinese and English. You may need to argue that you want authentic Chinese food. I have heard some reports that it's a pretty basic American-Chinese restaurant. But other people are getting authentic food. The menu is attached. I'd love to hear if anyone has eaten off it.

  16. The Thai language menu at Bangkok Garden. Thanks. I actually went to the Columbia restaurant and I was kind of disappointed -- they made a flavorful fish dish -- but it was so riddled with bones that it really detracted from my experience. That said, I'm willing to give it another go. Grazie!
