CR Lounge opens

LambMy non-Dining@Large duties at The Sun had me busy yesterday with non-dining matters -- pediatric colitis, politicians, pediatric politicians -- and I forgot to give the Sandbox a heads-up to Richard Gorelick's Table Talk column. Sorry about that.

For those of you who haven't already seen it, Richard brings news of CR Lounge, which opened Aug. 7 where Ixia used to be in Mount Vernon.

As Richard notes, the sign out front reads "C Restaurant and Lounge," not "CR." But if they're serving rack of lamb that looks this good, why argue?

Here's what Richard writes about chef Sammy Davis, "whose credits include Nobu NY and his own Atlanta restaurant, called Milk and Honey."

"A short bio of Davis from the Milk and Honey website says that Davis has worked with Sean Combs, Terrell Owens and Janet Jackson, none of whom is famous for being easy to please. That's encouraging."

Richard Gorelick was appointed The Baltimore Sun's restaurant critic in September 2010.

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.
