Now You See It, Now You Don’t
Not even two days after I was drooling over the prospect of a great new eatery here in Charm City, I am sad. Sad because one of my favorite special occasion restaurants is gone. Poof.
Taste has closed.
I liked this place for one main reason. Miso Planked Salmon. Here’s the description from their menu – “Salmon on a plank – house specialty, hand cut miso marinated salmon filet grilled on a cedar plank and presented with wasabi cream”. I swear it was so good I wanted to politely find a way to lick every last bit of that charred plank.
And the fact that once upon a time, I had my very first big girl hair cut in that very same space. It used to be a shoe store which had a hair salon. Baltimore, go figure. I walked in there one day with hair down to my waist. I walked out sporting a feathered Dorothy Hammill do.
So despite the fact that I only ever went there a handful of times, I now need a new source of planked salmon goodness. That’s not something I’m likely to find in my neighborhood. So if you can hook me up with a recommendation, I’d be mighty obliged to you.
