The new blog name and logo

kiss my Baltimore Diner opens tomorrow.

You will be able to jump on the blog from several places on the Baltimore Sun website., but your best bet is the main Dining page.

[I'll add a direct link as soon as it's up tomorrow.]

I think of Baltimore Diner as:

1) Diner, a place; the blog itself, a place where we all meet, informally, to chew the fat.

2) Diner, a person; you and you, men and women who live in and around Baltimore.  

I like it. (Probably because I thought of it.) I hope you do, too.

Note, please: "Baltimore" here certainly doesn't mean that we're narrowing our outlook. I just thought it sounded nicer than "Maryland Diner."

It's going to be an adjustment for me. The act of posting is fairly baroque in the new system. And of course, it will mean changes for you. In order to post comments, you will have to register. But other aspects of the new format, are subject to change, so don't hesitate to email me at with your feedback.

Good news: For the time being, you will be able to access the Dining@Large archives here.

good times!

i would recommend when it is up, that you post one last post on dining@large with the link, so those of use who subscribe via RSS will be reminded to add the new feed to our rss feeds.

i am assuming that this new blog will have an rss feed right? please?

I will and I certainly hope so. Thanks, rye

So far, so good, Richard. And, man, have I missed commenting! Glad that glitch has been solved.

Goodbye large ,hello diner,! Well done.

So long Large, hello Diner!! Well done

a better idea than just a single post with a link is for the 'crack IT' staff to just re-direct from dinning@large to baltimore diner.

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.

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