Next Sunday's review
I don't have much sense about how Little Italy's restaurant scene is doing in general.
I know there are several spots that have been empty for awhile. I'm not sure if and when Boccaccio is going to open again after its owner's death.
Tourists are always going to want to go to Little Italy. Locals seem to realize that there are other neighborhoods in Baltimore that have good Italian restaurants, but a lot of us still love Little Italy.
Anyway, is there room for a Spanish-Venezuelan tapas bar in Little Italy?
