Joe Squared
After eating out for nearly three weeks now, the thrill is long gone. The thought of another Quizno's sub, take out salad from the cafeteria, or Chinese food doesn't do much for me.

A friend had mentioned that Joe Squared on the corner of North Avenue and Howard St. was really good, so I decided to stop on the way home from work for some takey outey.

The place isn't much to look at from the outside, and the neighborhood leaves a little to be desired, but inside is a very cozy little bar / restaurant, and the menu will blow you away. I decided to just stay and eat in.

Wow.

Sure, you can get pizza, subs, pasta and bar food. But what bar food! I had a panini of grilled lamb with mint, caramelized onions, roasted peppers and asagio cheese. To. Die. For. Along with that, I had a side of risotto from their rather extensive and exotic risotto menu. Carrot risotto with curry, feta, and fennel. Yummy.

I didn't have the guts to try their chocolate-walnut, or ginger- pine nut, buffalo wings, but the waitress insists they are awesome with a fresh squeeze of lime. I'll take her word for it on that one.

They do deliver to my neighborhood and after reading the descriptions of some of their signature pizzas, their menu is going right to the top of the take out menus in the kitchen drawer.

    Hay! That's two blocks from my house, you know...

    jwer: Perhaps, but the other side of that bridge may as well be the de militarized zone.

    I've really been wanting to go there some time. Everything I hear is good. The neighborhood doesn't deter me. It's 5 blocks from where I work now and 2 blocks from where I'll be interning come September. And 2 blocks from Jwer. :)

    the wings tend to be a bit dry, but the risotto is nice. Thanks for your kind support, I'll be back in b-more next week.
