Quick poll: if you were considering going out for a reasonably-priced bite tonight, where would it be?

    Where did you end up? I'm looking for ideas!

    Any Thursday specials that are worthwhile?

      I need some suggestions also! For tonight! I'm in Timonium but we can drive downtown and the surrounding areas (Towson, Catonsville, Ellicott City, etc.). We like seafood, ethnic, and pretty much any kind of good food. Mid-priced would be great! And a short description of the restaurant you recommend.

        PIV'S PUB IS awesome. 9811 York Road.

          Shoot, I wish I'd seen this. That place looks good. I'm up visiting the area about once every six weeks or so so I'll have to check it out next time. We ended up eating at a hibachi Japanese place. Sakura I think.

            I seriously doubt that Piv's Pub is a destination restaurant. You may want to try Rib 'n Reef Grill (on Padonia Road-around the corner from Piv's). Or try Christopher Daniel for more upscale cuisine.

            Looking for Italian with a "twist", then I highly recommend Cafe Troia. Or, try Patrick's in Cockeysville. HUbby and I had a wonderful diinner there last weekend. These suggestions far outweigh Piv's IMHP. FoiGras

              Piv's is outstanding. They have everything from a Crab Cake Sandwich to Filet Mignon to House Made Apple Pie. The Chicken Quesadilla is amazing.
              Nice size pieces of chicken. Popular choice.
              Burgers are tasty. It's is not expensive by any means. Service is great. Booths are comfortable. Although I'd recommend avoiding a Friday or Saturday night cause it is a VERY popular place and their "bar" section gets PACKED and noisy. So if you wish for a more quiet, romantic evening head out on a Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday...

              I am a total seafood "ho" so for me it would be Mamas on the Half Shell
