The forgotten restaurant
Awhile back I posted an entry entitled Forgotten Restaurant of the Week. Sounds like the start of a regular feature, doesn't it? Well, 15 months later...
Anyway, a foodie co-worker had dinner at Crush in Belvedere Square last night and stopped by my desk to tell me about it. I haven't given it any consideration in making my Valentine's Day recommendations -- mostly because I had forgotten about it. But she had a good time, enjoyed the food and raved about the service. ...
Crush, for those who don't know it, is the restaurant that replaced Taste. One of the owners of Christopher Daniel in Timonium, Daniel Chaustit, left to open his own place late last summer. Crush isn't inexpensive, but if you pick and choose from the menu, it won't break the bank either.
My foodie friend said two of them split a salad, entree and dessert -- all of which the waitress put on separate plates for them -- and they weren't charged extra for the service.
I linked to Crush's Web site because it gives the address, phone number and hours, but it could do so much more. I always wonder why restaurants don't use their sites as a great marketing tool.
Anyway, I should make The Forgotten Restaurant a regular feature. Except that I won't remember to do it.
