Soup's on at reopened Suburban House

Suburban HouseSuburban House, the Pikesville institution that burned down last summer, reopens in a new location today at 7 a.m.

Joseph Stowe, who owns the restaurant with Mark Horowitz, told me last night that all of the old favorites will be on the menu.

"Chicken in a pot, chopped liver, homemade  roast brisket, fresh roasted turkey," he said, quickly rattling some off. 

But there will be new features, too, including bagels baked on the premises. 

"We're taking deli to the next level -- chopped salad station, carving station," he said. The new location, in a former Fuddruckers at 1700 Reisterstown Road, seats 250 -- up from 175 at the old spot.

Looking at the on-line menu, the good thing I notice is that the corned beef and pastrami are listed as "Hot". In the past, you needed to ask for it that way. I wonder if they are now keeping them in steamers?

Good news

Quick video of opening day--huge, crowded, noisy but not chaotic, though phones weren't answered:

I miss Fuddruckers

I understand the prices have gone up considerably. Also the photo here of the matzoh ball soup.......
If two can fit in one bowl, it isn't the same.
