Columbia/Ellicott City Dining? We need new places!

fsuadrienne | Aug 9, 200708:06 PM     34

Hi there,

My husband and I live in the Columbia/Ellicott City area of Maryland (basically at route 100 and 29 in Dorsey's Search) and often eat out on the weekends. We both work in downtown Baltimore, thus, unfortunately, we often do not feel like driving back downtown to eat. We have found a handful on "non-chain" restaurants that we like around here (e.g., Iron Bridge Wine, Zapata's Mexican, Dimitri's Greek, Donna's ,etc.), but was wondering if there were any other places to eat that we should try...

Can anyone recommend any good to great restaurants within a 15-20 minute driving radius from the Dorsey Search area (e.g. route 29 and 100)??? We are also unfortunately pretty poor and try to spend under $50 total for a meal out for two (for two entrees and sodas basically). "Non-chain" restaurants are preferred, but honestly, at this point, we would be willing to try a chain restaurant that was considered pretty good bang for the buck that maybe we aren't used to (we are from Florida originally)! ;)

Thanks for any ideas!!!
