Winter warmers, Milan, Langermann's and more




This is a big day for Midnight Sun Sam. First, he had the cover story in Taste on Winter Warmers. (It's become a photo gallery on the site.)

Now the Sun's home page is highlighting one of his posts yesterday, where he's bragging that he has a MIDNIGHT SUN EXCLUSIVE on his blog.

This is only because Milan's PR person sent him the press release yesterday and not me.

Way to endear yourself to the restaurant critic. ...

Today's Table Talk column, by the way, features news about Langermann's, the new restaurant in Canton's Can Company.

The print Top 10 Wednesday is the one on the top food news stories of the decade. Comments by Robert of Cross Keys, baltoellen and hmpstd made it in.

The flack actually told you the story by not sending it. Red velvet walls? Expect multiple planted PR posts from here on out by their publicists.

I didn't get a press release either, even though I called the publicist last week to ask about the status of the restaurant. I guess we're not as cute as Sam!

Is this the place that Turkeybone told us was advertising on craigslist looking for chef to make Italian sushi?

Interesting. I DID get that press release. I think there must be a strategic reason for that...not that I know what strategy that is.

I got it Wednesday; Sam got it earlier. EL

About this blog
Richard Gorelick was appointed The Baltimore Sun's restaurant critic in September 2010. Before joining the paper staff fulltime, he contributed freelance criticism and features articles about food to area and regional publications. Along the way, he dispatched for short-distance trucking companies, shilled for cultural non-profits, and assisted in cognitive neurology research – never the subject, always the control.

He takes restaurants seriously but not himself, and his favorite restaurant is the one you love, too.
