Small Bites: Lebanese Taverna celebrates 35th birthday with 1979 prices

Lebanese Taverna is celebrating its 35th birthday this summer with a 1979 "menu tour," featuring the original Lebanese Taverna menu from 1979 -- and 1979 prices.  

The tour begins on July 28-29 at the original Lebanese Taverna in Arlington's Westover neighborhood and will make stops at seven other Lebanese Taverna restaurants and cafes through Aug. 21.

Baltimore's Lebanese Taverna, which opened in 2002 in Harbor East, will have its turn on Aug 18 and 19. We'll get you more details about how the special menu works as those dates get closer.

• Johnny’s in Roland Park will host Baltimore’s second annual signature coffee drink competition on Sunday at 5 p.m. Among the competitors in this “Iron Chef”-style competition will be representatives from Dooby’s, the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, Artifact Coffee and City Cafe. The only rule for the competition — other than the that the drink must be a “drink,” and not, say, something more like a custard — is that the drink must contain one of 18 herbs. The list of herbs includes fennel, dill, marjoram and chives. Tickets for the event are $15 and votes from audience members will help decide the winner.

• The Brewer's Art has recently introduced a two-course, fixed-price menu. The two-course menu is $30 but for $5 more, you can get a suggested (10-ounce) beer pairing with each course. On Ray Kumm's menu: crispy Cheshire pork belly, lamb neck osso buco, smoked rainbow trout fillet and steak frites. The menu will be on offer at least through the end of August, except during Restaurant Week, which is Aug. 1-10.
