Gino Troia speaks his mind
If you haven't checked out the current issue of Style magazine, you should. It's the food issue, with some very interesting stuff in it. Thanks to Dahlink for pointing out the story about the Troias, who have been one of Baltimore's important food families for many years.
I'm so used to people tiptoeing around the subject of Little Italy that I was quite startled at this comment from the patriarch of the family, Gino Troia: ...
"In speaking about Little Italy, (or, for that matter, about most of the Italian restaurants in Maryland) Gino can barely contain his disgust.
“'If I can express my true opinion, I have to say without reservation that most Italian restaurants in Maryland suck. I think you did not expect me to say this, but you get tired of being surrounded by culinary mediocrity.'”
Wow. Tell us what you really think.
