Chewing The Fat With Chef Neill Howell Of The Corner Pantry

1 Written by: | Thursday, Apr 23, 2015 2:05pm

When I first met Chef Neill Howell at a preview dinner at The Corner Pantry, I was immediately impressed. From the moment I walked in, Neill, his wife Emily and their staff were warm, engaging and excited to have us there and after that first visit, I was anxious to come back. And I did. Again and again. Lunch, espressos, take out dinner on the way home, cooking classes and more. The decor, the vibe, the people – it all works. (Do NOT miss their Friday special – Fish & Chips…with the most delicious mushy peas in all of the land.) In just over a year, they have cultivated a great little following by making approachable, creative, tasty food, all with housemade ingredients. Seriously, you need the fish & chips in your life. #friday

On the “for better” side of things: Louder than a Bomb Baltimore. This rapidly growing teen poetry festival will take place this year at MICA from April 23-26th. Read More →

Georgetown Hoyas

The men’s basketball teams of Maryland and Georgetown haven’t played against each other since 2008. And if you want to talk about on-campus games, there hasn’t been one of those since 1993.
