Cafe Au Lait

Cafe Au Lait

Café Au Lait does not have a tofu banh mi. We discovered this after driving all the way to Ellicott City in a car with no air conditioning to get to the café, which is known for its many different types of banh mi. You can get the classic...

Atwater's

Atwater's

We were pleased that Canton Crossing added another local restaurant to its suburban-style assortment of mostly national (except for Samos and soon-to-open Farmstead Grill), casual, fast food and chicken-and-waffle-fry...

Station North Arts Cafe and Nancy by SNAC

Station North Arts Cafe and Nancy by SNAC

Long before anybody ever dreamed of bringing fine dining to Station North, the irrepressible Kevin Brown opened Station North Arts Cafe on the corner of Trenton Street and Charles, creating a beacon of friendly light. Last year, Brown...

Indochine

Indochine

We'd been waiting patiently for Indochine in Mount Vernon to open, so we were pretty excited when, by chance, we happened upon their 'soft opening.' We took our seats by the door but noticed our mistake when we started to sweat. As we...

El Rodeo Mexican Cuisine and Tequila Bar

El Rodeo Mexican Cuisine and Tequila Bar

Though El Rodeo is not above painting campy sayings such as "It's Beer:30" on colorful mini surfboards, Towson's take on Mexican cuisine offers up a largely sophisticated-casual atmosphere with minimalist décor. A restaurant and tequila...

Tony's Grill

Tony's Grill

When we used to commute to a job in Southeast Baltimore, we always noticed a sign reading "BREAKFAST" in a window right at the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. and Washington boulevards. Recently, on the hunt for a quick, cheap breakfast on...

Dylan's Oyster Cellar

Dylan's Oyster Cellar

Dylan's Oyster Cellar, which recently opened up for a six-month span in the basement pop-up shop space called the Hatch, has cornered the Mount Vernon bivalve market in its first week; mainly because it's the only decent raw bar in the...

Avanti Markets

Avanti Markets

Your doctor likely would say that corporate break-room vending is no way to eat properly, but Avanti Markets, the Tukwila, Wash.-based company that bills itself as "the sole leader in the micro-market industry," would beg to differ....
