Here's how things worked out for the lunching ladies.
"We had lunch at the Rumor Mill in Ellicott City today, and it was great! Thanks to your readers for all of their suggestions.
"The food & service were just what we wanted for today's relaxing lunch and visit with the family.
"My aunt found a good selection of vegetarian dishes, she ended up choosing one of the asian bowls with tofu and veggies. We ordered several small plates, and really enjoyed them, especially the crab dumplings, seared tuna, and warm asparagus & green bean salad.
