Sometimes, before a formal visit, I'll drop in to have a look around, gather up a few bites and gauge how long the restaurant will need before it's ready for a review. Three days after it opened, Cunningham's, a new restaurant from the Bagby Restaurant Group, was ready for its review. Located in the recently renovated Towson City Center, the restaurant is a full-on beauty. And the food we tried, appetizers like dumplings, stuffed pork belly and ricotta gnudi in rosemary black butter, were intriguing, fully considered and delicious. None of that "soft opening" or "we're working out the kinks." Cunningham's opened ready.
