I was driving up around Lutherville (suburbs just north of the city) and saw that a new restaurant has opened. It's in a small shopping center that's on Padonia road, up near where Padonia intersects with Jenifer Rd. For those of you familiar with the area, it's the shopping center with the Graul's Market. Sabor replaces the now closed Cafe Isis.
I stopped in really quick to take a peak at the location and menu. The environment was more modern than before, fairly warm tones. The hostess told me that the website wasn't yet finished but that I could take a menu. It definitely has some promise, but isn't cheap. A large selection of salads which are for the most part easily recognized (beet & goat cheese; spinach, bacon, and vinaigrette). A selection of appetizers. The entrees run around the low $20 and has some really potentially tasty dishes: braised short ribs, duck confit, sweet potato gnocci, calve's liver, and of course what restaurant would be complete without their version of steak frites.
There's also a list of predetermined specials each week including a vension on mondays, coq au vin on thursdays, and roasted pork shoulder on fridays. I don't know how I feel about specials not really being specials.
Anyway, if anyone has tried it yet, let us know. Or if you're looking for a place out in the burbs that might be a nice meal, feel free to try it out.
