diningatlargeSo, let's use this space to say good-bye to Dining@Large as we know it.

Here's a link to Elizabeth's first month of D@L posting, from April 2007. 


Well, I thought they were back. We're proceeding gingerly after  a spam attack that temporarily disabled them; the Tech staff is continuing to work through issues related to fully restoring commenting.

A toast to EL's style, wit and wording, which made this place a magnet; all these years later, I smile when I visit portrait clients at the Brutalist 36 S. Charles which she called a "high-rise gun emplacement with thin squinty bands" when she was the Sun's design critic.

All this time I was thinking that Elizabeth was really going to come back...


By the way, the correct answers:

1. Star Trek TOS
2. Kirk. Always Kirk.

You are reading the archives. For updated blog posts about the Maryland food scene, see Richard Gorelick's new Baltimore Diner blog.
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. 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.
