Owings Mills -- anyplace good to eat?
- TJ Jul 3, 2003 03:39 PM
My job relocated me from Bethesda to Owings Mills about 2 years ago. I have found very few places that are any good. There's plenty of fast food chains, chain-type restaurants (like Hops, Red Robin, Don Pablo, etc) and so on. I have found a decent enough sushi place, but nothing else. Vito's is good for pizza and subs, but man cannot live on subs and pizza alone.
Please chowhounders, tell me there are decent places to eat in Owings Mills!
There are a few places worth frequenting. New Town diner right on the west/south side of Reist' road offers tasty straightforward diner fare. The Fiesta Grill has stunning Guatemalan/Central American cuisine just south of Franklin Blvd. Cheap and friendly, too. Or drive a little further north to the Harryman House...an institution featuring lots of meat and American food, well-prepared with good ingredients. Cibo is in an unlikely office building for chowhound grub, at 100 Painter's Mill road. Solid gourmet pizzas, excellent soups, general Mediterranean theme. It only seems like a wasteland.
When we moved from Federal Hill to Owings Mills, I was in food shock. Owings Mills is the land of corporate dining. But we have managed to find some good local places. I agree with the recommendations already made and have a few to add.
Sushi Ya - EXCELLENT sushi. We go there so much we can say we want the usual and they know what that means.
Mezzanotte Bistro in Glynden and Liberatore's - great reasonably priced Italian and good take out
Olive and Sesame - this is a new place for us in Pikesville. They advertise as having healthy Chinese/Japanese/Sushi. They have a huge sushi menu and everything we have had so far is good.
Bagel shop in New Town - good bagels and yummy bagel sandwiches
Artistic Bistro in New Town - yummy sandwiches, pastas and salads and great take-out.
Artful Gourmet Bistro in New Town is quite good - also has a few outdoor tables - you will need a reservation for Friday or Saturday.
