M. Gettier is on the move
Look for M. Gettier, the popular French restaurant in the unpopular location (a seedy block of Broadway), to be moving soon. Owner Michael Gettier won't divulge where he might be going; negotiations for the new place are at a delicate stage, he explains. If nothing else, the period between the move and the reopening might give him some much-needed rest from the kitchen. "I haven't missed a night of cooking since we opened," he says. That was April 1993. Find of the week: Fernando's Salsa Grill, 6642A Security Blvd., (410) 265-5552. It looks like a sub shop in front; in back you realize it might actually be a Latino restaurant. One chef is Peruvian; the other trained in the Greenbriar Hotel's kitchens. Huge portions of paella, arros con pollo and empanadas are the specialties, all at more-than-reasonable prices.
