  1. Restaurant review: Jerry's Seafood

    09 August 2007

    Last night was another small-group-dinner with the guys from work, meaning that we had a fairly easy time of deciding where to eat. With some trepidation we asked the front desk of our hotel for advice about where we should get dinner, because lately we've gotten bad advice from them. To be accurate, we got bad directions from them. The woman behind the front desk dug around in one of the three-ring binders behind the counter and fished out directions to Jerry's Seafood (9364 Lanham-Severn Road; Lanham, MD, 20706; phone 301-577-0333; fax 301-577-5926), which happened to be as few exits …

  2. Restaurant review: Bombay Masala

    07 August 2007

    Earlier this evening, one of my cow-orkers and I decided to try a restaurant a bit closer to our hotel. Off and on all last week, we kept seeing the Bombay Masala (8825 Greenbelt Road; Greenbelt, MD 20770; phone 301-552-1600) in a nearby strip mall, but hadn't had a chance to pay it a visit for dinner or lunch, partially due to the size of the group that usually went.

    The Bombay Masala is a …

  3. Restaurant review: Bennigan's Grill and Tavern

    02 August 2007

    During my tenure in Maryland while on assignment, I've been given the opportunity to try the cuisine of not a few restaurants in the general area (I don't have much of a choice, having neither microwave nor refrigerator in my hotel room), much to the chagrin of my wasteline. At any rate, some days my colleagues and I are in the mood for something near the top of the ladder in terms of quality, and sometimes we're after something more down-home and tasty... proximity to our hotels is also a nice thing.

    On Tuesday evening we found ourselves at Bennigan's …

  4. Restaurant review: Rip's

    31 July 2007

    Rip's Casual Dining - 3809 North Crain Highway; Bowie, MD 20716; 301-805-5901

    While in the field on assignment for work this week, I'm going to be stuck eating out a lot, so I may as well make the best of it, right?

    Last night I went out to dinner with my cow-orkers and the other guys on my project team after the day's wrap-up meeting was over. We stopped back at our hotels to change and take showers after a long day of hiking around a huge business complex, wandering through server rooms the size of gymnasiums, and crawling around on …
