Al Dente Posted July 7, 2008 Share Posted July 7, 2008 This past weekend I visited family on the Eastern Shore and dined at a restaurant called 213 in bustling Fruitland MD, a "suburb" of Salisbury. Now if you've ever been to Fruitland, pronounced FROOTlin to those in the know, you would be surprised by this joint. Hell, even if you found this joint in comparitively cosmopolitan Salisbury you'd be scratching your head. 213 takes a stab at fine dining and sort of pulls it off. I thought they tried too hard with the amuse bouche and pre-entree sorbet, but otherwise I had a fine salad of baby greens, herbs, and duck confit as well as a steak (which they claimed was and it seemed to be usda prime) au poivre that was as good as any I've had. Anyway, they made a big deal out of being recently recognized by DiRoNA (though looking at the DiRoNA website they seem to have gone missing) and I wondered whether having that honor bestowed upon your restaurant was really an indication of anything. I mean, you're mentioned in Zagat's? Whoop-de-doo. Is DiRoNA much the same? DiRoNA feel free to move this thread wherever it belongs... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
