Regi's American Bistro




1002 Light St
Baltimore, MD 21230
Phone: (410) 539-7344

I went here for lunch with a friend I teach with. It was a very cute place with great decor and great seating outside. Thee outside was full so we sat inside. We both had the urkey and Brie - Fresh roasted turkey breast right off the bone! with melted brie cheese and cranberry demi-glaze served on ciabatta bread. It was very thick! It came with these fresh made fries that reminded me of boardwalk style fries. Both the fries and sandwich were very good.The service was very good. Most sandwiches were $8-$10. The menu had a nice wide selection and I would love to go back and try some other things. The only con I saw was parking- Federal Hill is basically all metered street parking so good luck! We lucked out and it was lunch time. I couldn't imagine dinner time!

Fazzini Italian Kitchen

578 Cranbrook Rd
Cockeysville, MD 21030
Phone: (410) 667-6104

This place was recommend to us from another couple we are friends with. They have stopped here a few times because it is next door to where their reception will be in September. They told us to try the pound of pasta or the Pasta Fazzini- plus they said everything else was just as good.

I tried the Chicken and Shrimp Scampi $14.25- Chicken breast and shrimp sautéed in garlic and white wine. It wasn't bad but I have had better. I don't think I would get it again. The Hubby had the Chicken Parmigiana $12.99 and it was VERY good. We also ordered the Garlic Cheesy bread. We had it as take out. Next time I think we should stay there to eat it. It is a very plain and simple place but he portions are BIG!

PS- next door was a bakery that looked good- but they didnt take any plastic so I couldnt try it

Pappas Restaurant & Liquors




1725 Taylor Ave.
Baltimore, MD 21234
410-661-4357

We went out last night with a group of friends (8 people). We were very surprised at how nice it was inside- it wasn't expected from they way it looked on the outside. A bunch of us got the Maryland Crab Cake- Six ounces of Chesapeake Bay jumbo lump crabmeat delicately blended(however it did have a good deal of filler but a lot of big chunks of meat- I did come across a few tiny pieces of shells in it). We were out celebrating my birthday and plenty of people who worked there stopped by to wish me a happy birthday. The service people were very nice and friendly. The food was average. I think I would have to go back and give the food another chance.

Costas Inn



4100 Northpoint Blvd.
Baltimore, MD 21222
410-477-1975

Their crabs are some of the better ones I have had (I got the 35s). They are very "dirty" (the name MD gave for lots of seasoning). The only thing that I didn't like is when I asked for melted butter they didn't tell me it was 75 cents ( I found out when the bill came). I just think they should have told you when you ordered it. I also got this coconut and cinnamon friend ice cream- it was different then any other one I had had (it was like it the ice cream was between 2 pieces of french toast)- It had a carmel and raspberry sauce- except I didn't taste any coconut. I highly recommend calling ahead even if you are not getting crabs.

Pasta Blitz



49 W Aylesbury Rd
Lutherville, MD
(410) 453-6603


So My Hubby and I were out and about last night to REI. We have been there a few times over the last few weeks and kept seeing things NOW OPEn sign above this little place called Pasta Blitz. So we drove by and peered in and figured lets try it. The place is very cute. It reminds me a of a Pizzeria but with a bit more class. The decor is very nice and warm with a wonderful orange color and red accents. THey say they are brining their customers authentic Italian dishes just like the ones their mom used to prepare back in Naples, Italy with both the decor and authentic Italian cuisine. The website is very friendly and has a complete list of daily lunch specials (which there are at least 4 every day), their menu and much more.

The food... They start you with bread and an olive oil/balsamic vinegar mix with seasoning

We started with the MOZZARELLA STICKS
7) Served with a side of tomato sauce 5.95. They were the best I have ever had (not sure if they were but they tasted homemade)

I had PENNE ALLA CARBORANA
Penne pasta sauteed with olive oil, pancetta and egg yolk in a light cream wine sauce, finished with romano cheese & fresh blck pepper 10.95- It was yummy. The sauce was different from any carborana that I have ever had (not as think and some different tastes) but was very good.

My Hubby had CHICKEN PARMIGIANA
Tender chicken breast, lightybreaded & pain fried. Topped with melted mozzarella cheese. Served with spaghetti in our tomato sauce 10.95 It was HUGE!

Everybody was very friendly and plenty of people check in on us. There were about 5 other tables while we were there but they set up 2 different tables for 9 and placed reserved markers on them. So I figure it gets good business. The place is also BYOB.

They do take out like any regular pizza place- I noticed the take out menu said something about special catering and had different discounts for different size catering amounts from 8 ppl to 20 ppl (each number had a higher discount)

I will be going back!!!!!
