The Helmand in Baltimore???

sailor | Aug 7, 200011:39 PM     8

Is the Helmand as good as all the reviewers say? (Better than the Silk Road?) We're looking for a special place to spend my birthday and were wondering if Afghan food might be fun to try. But we're open to any and all suggestions...

Last year we tried the Black Olive, on South Bond St, near Fells Point -- I absolutely loved the ambience as well as the emphasis on seafood cooked healthily. Though it's tempting to return to Black Olive (we live in DC but are moving out of the area at the end of the month), I'd prefer to try something new -- older I may be getting, but not enough to be in a rut for my b-day celebrations :)
