Another Community Heard From on Restaurant Week

The Pikesville Chamber of Commerce had their big shindig this past weekend, Dancing in the Streets, with antique cars, food vendors and the big musical guests, the Hubcaps. Since it is my “hood”, the husband and I ventured to the heart of Pikesville where people were lounging in their lawn chairs, some were dancing in the aisles on the Pikes Diner’s parking lot and others drooled over the antique cars.

I bumped into Jamie Luna, owner and executive chef of Mari Luna Mexican Grill, who was selling Fajitas in front of his soon-to-be opened Mari Luna Latin Grill, located in the original Mr. Chan’s restaurant location. Jamie gave me the tour of the bar area, dining room and the upstairs dining deck-it looks great!. Opening is tentative for the beginning of September with a ribbon cutting ceremony mid-September. Chef Luna comes to the table with great credentials from the award-winning Citronelle and the Steve DeCastro restaurants, Babalu and Blue Sea Grill.

This week, the Pikesville community is offering their own restaurant week specials. The discounts vary for the different restaurants but Mari Luna Mexican Grill (since the Latin isn't open yet) and Pasticco's Italian Kitchen are both offering buy one entree get the second one 1/2 price.
