Next Sunday's review
I've never eaten at Mari Luna Mexican Grill in Pikesville (the other reviewer wrote about it), so I didn't realized the full extent of its popularity.
Mari Luna Latin Grille, its new, more ambitious sister restaurant, is on its way to being just as big a success.
Why? In this economy particularly, people value decent food at good prices, friendly service and a fun place to be. What they don't seem to be caring as much about is whether a restaurant is "in," cutting-edge or so overpriced you must be important to be eating there.
So how was my experience at the new Mari Luna? Please look for my review next Sunday in the Arts & Entertainment section or online.
