An amusing note, significant of nothing. I was reading the Baltimore City Paper's "Best of Baltimore" issue (today's the last day to find it - new issue out tomorrow).
Of the "five favorite restaurants" on my Chowhound profile, three of the five got a "Best of Baltimore" mention, and one of my five (Alfred's Tomato Pie) is in New Jersey, so it's really three out of four (Oriental Manor is my other local fave). I'm not sure that knowing my tastes are in synch with the City Paper's judges is a good thing, or a worrisome thing, but be that as it may...
Ras Doobie - Best Jamaican
Cafe Amore - Best Italian Yes, it's the one in Glen Burnie that is owned by the same folks as Rocco's in Little Italy. Those of you in AA county - check them out!
Joe Squared - Best Delivery Pizza Rread the article for the goofy "cheat" on this - the judges are trying to convince Joe Squared to deliver! OK, so maybe that shouldn't really count, and I go back to .500!
Anybody else have comments or praise for their faves that won recognition, or categories where we may have a, um, *disagreement* with the City Paper Judges?
