The kid has gone back to college after a lengthy winter break. For her last meal before leaving town she chose Maiwand at Columbia Crossing. It’s a family favorite.
So here’s a question for you, not unlike one of those “Elevator Speech” questions posed by Elevate Maryland cohosts Candace Dodson Reed and Tom Coale at the end of each podcast. If you were leaving town for a long period of time, what local restaurant would be your first choice for a last meal?
This isn’t exactly a “what’s the best restaurant?” question or an evaluation of fine cuisine. It’s more of a look at what is dearest in your heart. What memories would you most want to carry with you on the journey? What local flavors do you love the most?
Only one rule: it has to be a restaurant that exists now, not one of fond memories past. After all, the rest of us might want to find out why you like them so much and pay them a visit. Since we haven’t mastered time travel as of yet, testimonials for the Tomato Palace or Portalli’s would be in vain.
I guess this is almost a Howard County Restaurant Weeks post. Not exactly in the same vein, but, still, written with a sincere appreciation for our local establishments.
