Can there ever be enough pizza? It’s a question for all time. But in the snapshot of Baltimore in the first months of 2016, the answer is a resounding no.
Josh Hershkovitz of Hersh’s Pizza & Drinks is a man of many talents. A Baltimore native and graduate of McDonogh School and the University of Chicago, he studied both sculpture and philosophy in college. He also has an MBA. And the cooking. He certainly has that down. Aren’t you glad he chose cooking?
Here’s the logic of one of our favorite local wineries: “if this was a leap year, the 29th of February would’ve been a Saturday. So, logically, we’re rolling on one more week with Fired Up February — in March!” In other words, too much of a good thing is fabulous. If you’re unfamiliar with DeJon Vineyard’s Fired Up February event—it features some of our very favorite things: amazing local wine, live acoustic music, and absolutely perfect wood fired pizza from the one-of-a-kind, River House Pizza. A match made in heaven? Maybe. Or a match made in Maryland’s gorgeous agricultural hills.
Did you know that Scoozi opened? Yes, last month as we were all in the middle of the holiday rush, the new Italian restaurant at the Radisson Hotel in The Village of Cross Keys had its soft opening. The 120-seat restaurant serves pizza, salads and pasta dishes created by Culinary Institute of America graduate and Scoozi Chef Tim Robertson. It is located in the space that used to house Crossroads Restaurant and it is part of the Radisson’s $6 million renovation. The new space includes a show kitchen and a hearth oven.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, Monday through Saturday.
