Trattoria Alberto reviewed; Mi Viejo Pueblito chef moving on

albertoRob Kasper's review in today's Live! section is of Trattoria Alberto in Glen Burnie, one of those restaurants that folks are always discovering and recommending (often on this blog).

The blogger 1000yregg says on This is Gonna be Good that the chef-owner Mi Viejo Pueblito in Brewers Hill is moving on. It's unclear what the future is for the owner, whom the blogger calls Iveth, or the restaurant space. I'll work on this today (but if anybody knows, please tell me.)

Update, 11:35 a.m.: the restaurant location at 601 S. Conkling, until last week Mi Viejo Puelbito, is now  under new ownership; the new name is Fiesta Mexicana
