Restaurants RIP

By Richard Gorelick | Posted 12/28/2005

Let it be known that 2005 was the year of the vampire restaurant. Operations didn’t so much die as lapse into deep slumbers, sometimes reviving themselves, sometimes not. The big loss was dear old Marconi’s, which Peter Angelos may return to us, but certainly never again as it was. It’s gone. The lunchroom at the Woman’s Industrial Exchange closed and reopened under separate management, and it’s not the same. Only Martick’s remains. Due, out in Owings Mills, stopped serving. Viccino closed and came back as Neo Viccino. Pascale’s Italian Deli and Pork Store morphed into Bruschetta. Mom’s Southern Soul Food, the North Avenue soul-food restaurant, is now Mom’s Buffet. And really, really gone are Bandaloops, Jeannier’s, Nile Café, Eurasian Harbor, Fatima’s, 23rd Degree, Cafe di Roma, Victor’s Café, McCafferty’s, Soigné, and, most sadly of all, Soo’s Kimchee House.
