Bourbon-Marinated Flank Steak

This was great. My husband loved it. Used our George Foreman grill and cooked the steak for 7-1/2 minutes. It was a nice medium.

For sheils628--did you slice the steak super-thin against the grain? That really makes it tender to eat.

What's the deal with that place? Baltimore

The food I've had at my few visits to Grill Art was good enough, but the service all three times was so Slow Slow Slow (even slower than Golden West slow) that I see no reason to go back. Your parents must be really patient!

New to me diner in Baltimore

Wow, I'd have to totally disagree with maddogg280--we breakfast there frequently and my favorite part is the potatoes. Love the healthy dose of paprika. My husband usually gets the sausage biscuits and gravy.

Baltimore's La Cazuela and Rinconcito Peruano

I can concur with Dmnkly. I've been to both. You'll find that La Cazuela has a nicer ambience--cozier and warmer. La Cazuela has a bigger menu, from what I remember. The service is great at both, though. Very friendly and attentive. You'll definitely like Rinconcito Peruano, but it is distinctly different.

Dinner near Baltimore Comedy Factory

My husband and I like Tir Na Nog, in the Inner Harbor. Lots of Irish and English beers on tap, with a decent menu. It's just a couple of blocks south of the Comedy Factory, on the upstairs level of the Harborplace Pratt Street Pavilion. It would be my only recommendation in the Harborplace pavilions. It is technically a chain, tho. They have locations in NYC and Philly.

Grano- new on 36th street in Hampden

My husband and I got carryout from Grano this week. Although I wouldn't say it's the best pasta I've ever had, it was certainly tasty and of good quality. I had the pesto, really fresh. My husband had the gorgonzola walnut. One intriguing thing--you can buy the sauce alone, packed for home, which I will probably try soon.

The owner certainly seems to have a good attitude--a sign in the window said "Pasta Cook wanted, must speak English, be happy, and smile often." I'm happy it's in the neighborhood! I hope they will do well--Hampdenites, I hope you'll support them!

BYOB for Friday night (Baltimore)

The Dogwood in Hampden is still BYOB, and offers a bit more upscale menu & setting.
