Looking over the menu at Mari Luna Latin Grille is like browsing through a stack of travel brochures.
History is full of romantic stories starring lone travelers, weary and cold, coming upon quaint country pubs and finding shelter and fellowship for a night. Modern life, with our zippy cars, GPS apps and chain restaurant-filled strip malls, makes these stories feel faraway and foreign.
There have been a couple of changes lately at the old Vito's Cafe, a sterling Italian restaurant in a shopping center on York Road in Cockeysville. Last summer, the family-owned establishment, which had been a BYOB, got a license to serve wine, beer and liquor. And more recently, the restaurant,...
Bette Arnold Henderson of Bradenton, Fla., was in search of a recipe for baked stuffed eggplant like the one she and her husband used to enjoy some years ago when they lived in Santa Barbara, Calif. It was served at Mariann's Italian Villa, and they liked the dish so much it came to be the only...
Fania Lewando, like so many millions of Europe's Jews, did not survive World War II. But death has not proven to be the end to her story. A cookbook Lewando wrote in 1938 while operating a popular vegetarian restaurant in Vilna, a Lithuanian city then under Polish control, is being republished...
For a busy weekday cook, having a good dried spaghetti in the pantry is about 90% of having dinner made. Dress it with butter and Parmigiano Reggiano, or chopped fresh tomatoes and olive oil, and you have a memorable meal with little more than the time and effort it took to boil water.

I have to admit I love the idea of putting an affordable and accessible Asian bistro in Station North, just a few doors down from the Charles Theatre. Apparently, so do a lot of other people.
