Looney's, Maruha and More in The Sun

The Baltimore Sun may be one of America's incredible shrinking newspapers, but there are some interesting local restaurant articles over the last couple of days.

First there was Elizabeth Large's column yesterday highlighting the new Maruha Steakhouse & Sushi Bar in Columbia's Hickory Ridge Village Center. Then there's Richard Gorelick's article on Yakitori One in Baltimore -- a skewers trend I'd love to see come closer to Howard County. Most of Howard County's many Japanese places have basic yakitori chicken or beef, but why not feature a wider variety of healthy seafood and veggie variants?

There is also Sam Sessa's piece today on the crowds at Looney's at Maple Lawn. And Rob Kasper pops in on the new Indian restaurant in nearby Catonsville, Spicy Garden.

The Sun gets smaller and smaller, but it's encouraging to see their coverage of local eateries.
