Next Sunday's review: Ranazul
Ranazul in Maple Lawn has been on my mental to-do list since it opened, but it kept getting pushed down as other restaurants closer to home needed reviewing. The events of the last couple of weeks got me thinking about it again.
As regular readers know, the owner of Ranazul has teamed up with the owner of Jordan's Steakhouse in Ellicott City to reopen what was the oZ. Chophouse in Maple Lawn. ...
The new restaurant would be known as Carlos and Jordan's Steakhouse. I'm making no predictions now about when and if that will happen, but I do know that Ranazul has been a success where other restaurants in the new Maple Lawn development have failed.
I decided to see why for myself. And it didn't hurt that I need one more Spanish/Mediterranean/tapas place for my sangria story, which is scheduled to appear in next Wednesday's Taste section.
If the tapas craze has run its course, you couldn't tell it from Ranazul. To see what I thought of our food, please look for my review in next Sunday's Arts & Entertainment section.
