Crime in Little Italy, pumpkins and pizza
There are so many restaurant- or blog-related things I want to link to in today's paper I hardly know where to begin.
I'll start with the story by Peter Hermann about a meeting called by the owner of Cafe Gia in Little Italy. I know some residents of the neighborhood are upset about the goings on at and outside Mo's because they've written me about their concerns. It sounds like Gia Blatterman is, too. ...
Then click here to go to Susan Reimer's blog post on the Great Canned Pumpkin Shortage, which also has info on what's in those cans of pumpkin. If you're concerned about more than just pies, you might want to read her story on the pumpkin shortage.
Other Reviewer Richard reviewed Coal Fire Pizza in Ellicott City today, and as often, his review contained a line that made me laugh out loud. He tell us about "...the Coal Fire signature sauce, which is described as a 'perfect blend of two distinct tastes: sweetness & spice.' And I just hated it."
On the whole, though, he seemed to like the place a lot. And that pizza is looking pretty good right now.
