  • Liberatore's food matches high-class atmosphere

    Liberatore's food matches high-class atmosphere
    12:05 p.m. We arrive at Liberatore's in Timonium and, as I suspected, I feel underdressed. We're met by men in black bowties. I'd feel better if I were wearing a tie or at least a jacket. White linen, short-stemmed water glasses, and a few tables of...
  • An accessible upscale experience

    An accessible upscale experience
    You might find yourself sitting in your comfortable booth in the Stanford Grill's big, wide-open dining room saying things like, "You know what, these are really amazing ribs," or, "Actually, this steak is fantastic." All along, the food the Stanford...

    7 West tries to do a bit of everything
    Since it opened in a great Towson location in November 2009, the 7 West Bistro Grille has become a popular lunch destination for lawyers and other professionals working within walking distance. As it happens, Towson doesn't have many places for a sit-down...
  • Restaurant review: Matsuri keeps it fresh in Federal Hill

    Restaurant review: Matsuri keeps it fresh in Federal Hill
    Matsuri opened in 1996. I place this in the second wave of Baltimore's sushi experience, when Japanese restaurants began to look as much like the pub next door as the tatami and shoji-screen stage sets of the first wave. Some old-school rituals are in...
  • City Cafe makes a comeback

    City Cafe makes a comeback
    The type size on City Cafe's menu is too small. Well, that's about it, folks. Everything else this magically restored Mount Vernon institution is doing is whip-smart and spot-on. Let's be honest: The City Cafe, in the years leading up to its 2009...
  • Restaurant review: Cafe Hon is hard not to like

    Restaurant review: Cafe Hon is hard not to like
    I know that not so long ago some folks were up in arms over Cafe Hon owner Denise Whiting's efforts to trademark the "h" word." Yet there was no malice in my heart when I went there recently for supper. I just wanted a good meal, and I got one. Sitting...

    Restaurant Review: Chef Mac's is in tune with its audience
    Welcome to improv dining. Chef Mac's and All that Blues, the new home for Maclonza Lee's Louisiana cuisine, is part restaurant and part supper club. The kitchen serves from an a la carte menu on Tuesday through Thursday nights, but on Friday and Saturday...
  • Restaurant review: Mari Luna Bistro rusty in Meyerhoff debut

    Restaurant review: Mari Luna Bistro rusty in Meyerhoff debut
    The Luna family has built a deep reservoir of good will with their two Pikesville-area restaurants. Mari Luna Mexican Grill, which opened to great acclaim in fall 2004, has remained a steadily performing purveyor of quality Mexican food. Its more...
  • Restaurant review: Beer complements food at Red Brick Station

    Restaurant review: Beer complements food at Red Brick Station
    The words "beer food" bring to mind items like pretzels, peanuts and pizza. But at Red Brick Station in White Marsh the term means mussels steamed in ale, fish dipped in a beery batter and meat marinated in stout. Here, the beer is often in the food....
  • Restaurant review: Savory Tex-Mex fare at El Hidalgo

    Restaurant review: Savory Tex-Mex fare at El Hidalgo
    Meeting and eating a new food can be exciting. The other night at El Hidalgo, a Tex-Mex restaurant in an Elkridge shopping center, I was introduced to tlacoyos. They were Mexican corn cakes ($7) shaped like torpedoes, stuffed with chicken and topped with...
  • Restaurant Review: Ikaros serves more than just comfort

    Restaurant Review: Ikaros serves more than just comfort
    The Kohilas family has been operating Ikaros at the same Greektown address since 1969. That's a very long run for any restaurant, especially a family-owned and -operated establishment. Ikaros is truly beloved by its patrons, who loudly sing the praises of...
  • Restaurant review: Lively burgers and crabs at Dead End Saloon

    Restaurant review: Lively burgers and crabs at Dead End Saloon
    Despite its name, there is nothing dire about the Dead End Saloon in Fells Point. In fact, it is quite a lively spot, even on a weeknight. The establishment's name stems not from its atmosphere, nor its clientele, but from its location. It sits on a...
