Lunch review of the Artful Gourmet -- a new contest idea
John Lindner reviews the Artful Gourmet in Owings Mills and has some fun exploring the connection, if any, between the restaurant's fancifully named menu items -- Dali Calamari, Kandinsky Quesadilla, Surreal Caesar -- and the food itself.
Rob Kasper had similar fun with the menu items at Hollywood Burger Bistro -- where a sandwich with fried green tomatoes is called The Kathy Bates and one served on an English muffin is called...it hurts to type this...the Princess Di.
I feel a contest coming on. I'm thinking it'll be having to come up with both a new theme restaurant and the eponymous menu items. Maybe we could split it up into the sublime and the ghastly. Who has some ideas about to refine this one?
