Razorback’s

Posted by theminx under Top Foodie Blog
My family has been going to Razorback's since they opened in Canton in the 90s. Now in Towson, they're far more conveniently-located and Mr Minx and I usually end up there once a year or so; it's a good place to hide out during the mayhem that is Halloween. Especially since Ukazoo books and Fresh [...]

Bubbles and Biceps at Legal Seafoods

Posted by Bianca Garcia under Top Foodie Blog
A few weeks ago, I received an invitation to attend the Legal Harborside: Bivalves and Bubbles event. My first instinct was to say no. I'm allergic to oysters, after all. But... I'm not allergic to champagne. And... I'm certainly not allergic to naked cowboys. (Actually, just one Naked Cowboy. He was the guest of honor. And [...]

A celebration fit for a king, at least one that likes oysters, we kicked of a weekend birthday extravaganza at none other than the holy grail of oyster dining in New York City, Aquagrill.

Posted by Daisy under Top Foodie Blog
Preceded by its upstanding reputation and precluded by a hefty price tag; the buzz hasn't let up since it opened in March of 2007, and my desire to visit has only grown stronger all the while. As good fortune combined with a little hard work and dedica... [...]
