Best Restaurant in Need of a Name Change

City Paper

1444 Light St., (443) 449-7129,

Liv2eat won best new restaurant last year. We love the food and the service, and really dig the lovely and lush outdoor patio. It is an oasis on a hot summer’s night, but the name does not reflect the beauty. It’s something a teenager could write in grip tape on her skateboard (eating here evokes a sidewalk, curve, or railing). The name evokes the lameness of our texting techo love affair with stupid, lazy spelling. While we may live to eat at Liv2eat, it is embarrassing to tell friends to meet us there . . . even if it’s in a tweet. #liv2eat
