- Bean & Burgundy Bread got a favorable report from Elizabeth on The Bare Midriff. She reported on a hybrid menu that mixes American and Korean dishes, and she liked her lunch.
- Le Comptoir got a pass from The Two Dudes Who Love Food. Since I think I'm the "hype" that they mention about the place, I have to note that they didn't have such a great visit. Their family had a $47 breakfast that they definitely didn't love. If you want the hype, check out my posts. We love the joint for sweets and coffee.
- Kitchen Scribble wrote up meals at two different places -- Cha Ya Asian Asian Bistro in Columbia and Cafe Au Lait in Ellicott City. The cafe is the local outpost for bahn mi sandwiches. I wrote about Cafe Au Lait's sandwiches in 2012, and kat ordered a huge selection for a group of people to share.
- And the folks at Cha Ya keep posting videos on YouTube. They're pretty interesting -- although I laughed at the video where the chef talked about the wok that he uses. I'm actually infatuated by the jet engine gas burner that he uses. How do I get one of those?
On top of those, check out a new food blog with local authors. Three Beans On A String mostly does recipes -- lots of inspiration of fresh vegetables. But they're local folks. Elizabeth talked up a mushroom stroganoff that she had at Great Sage, and the Twitter feed is good to follow for other local food links and ideas.
