New Caribbean place in Baltimore's Little Italy...

It looks like there's a new Caribbean restaurant opening up in Little Italy, where India Rasoi was.

Does anyone know anything about it?

I don't know if it has opened yet or not. I walked by the other day and they were waiting for the inspection.

Best restaurant in NYC for lamb chops?

Thanks cheesecake ;-)

Mike's sounds pretty good... haven't heard of it before. I've heard of Le Marais and the Prime Grill, of course, but it's always good to see what people suggest.

Looking at the menu, I'm pretty certain that my wife will be ordering the "roasted and marinated beet salad" followed by the lamb chops.

Thanks again, and if anyone else wants to chime in, I'm all ears!

"Hunter gatherer" restaurant in Baltimore?

Unfortunately that article isn't online, and the company that owns the website sold off the printed version... so I don't really know how to track this down...

"Hunter gatherer" restaurant in Baltimore?

That could be it... we were at a sushi place, waiting for a table, and I picked up the magazine and saw the review as I was flipping through it. A friend wanted to know more... but then I couldn't remember the name, or find anything by Googling.

Best restaurant in NYC for lamb chops?

My wife and I will be in NYC just before our second wedding anniversary, and I was thinking of taking her out to a place with lamb chops – which is probably her favorite meat meal.

I know that steakhouses have been discussed ad nauseam, but I'd like to see what people recommend for lamb chops. Anyone?

What should I be looking at... La Carne Grill, The Prime Grille, Le Marais?

Besides delicious lamb chops, I'd like good service and a nice ambience. Not always where kosher restaurants excel, I know, but it can't hurt to ask.

I'm not much of a lamb person myself, but do enjoy a good steak (or something a little more interesting) so if you have a follow-on suggestion for me as well, I'd appreciate it!

Thank you, and Happy Hanukkah!

"Hunter gatherer" restaurant in Baltimore?

Can anyone help me with the name of a restaurant? I believe that it's in Baltimore, or possibly just east of Baltimore.

I read something about it maybe a year or a year and a half ago in a little magazine that I found at a sushi restaurant in Fells Point.

Apparently the chef of this restaurant gathers all of the ingredients. Eggs from birds nests. Fish if he can catch them. Mushrooms that he forages. Birds that he catches. Wild herbs. And so on... I think that his "signature" dish was pigeon.

I'd love to find out the name of the restaurant, if anyone else knows it. And if you have been there, and have any comments, I'd love to hear them too!

Thank you in advance!
