Those trendy sliders
I notice that Alexander's Tavern, Charlie Gjerde's new bar-restaurant in Fells Point, has not one but five different kinds of sliders on its menu. (I still remember the chopped sirloin one topped with foie gras at Salt.)
That reminded me that Bon Appetit's September issue featured meatball sliders on its cover.
Isn't it great that if you wait long enough, the foods of your childhood that you are embarrassed to admit you still love will eventually morph into something chic?
