Eat 2000

Posted 2/23/2000

If you want a good feed around the Social Security complex, do what the Social Security staffers do and drop in at Monaghan's Pub (2121 Gwynn Oak Ave., [410] 944-3311) for all manner of subs and sandwiches. Soup and salad might sit well for lunch, and pit beef is a hit any time of day. The bar food is especially good, and there's even raw-bar food, at market prices. It's a wonder those workers ever make it back to the office to ensure the checks are in the mail.

Small, friendly, unassuming—that's Pebbles Pub (7165 Security Blvd., Woodlawn [410] 265-7878), with a menu that includes just about everything. Enjoy deli sandwiches, subs, pizza, fried chicken, hot turkey or beef, crab cakes, even broiled salmon. A friend of ours swears Pebbles was steaming up the best crabs in the areas last summer, and the folks there couldn't be nicer.

Soup to nuts, baby: They serve it all at the Windsor Inn Crab House (7207 Windsor Mill Road, Woodlawn, [410] 944-0446). The soup would be crab soup, of course, or maybe an occasional Greek avgolemono. In fact, you'll find a big roster of Greek and Italian dishes, along with the usual seafood, steaks, and chicken selections. It'll take a while to peruse the menu. Order some appetizers, Greek or otherwise, and sip something frosty while you decide. In summer, of course, start banging.

North and South American threads weave a culinary tapestry at Fernando's Salsa Grill (6642-A Security Blvd. [Meadows Park Shopping Center], Woodlawn, [410] 410-265-5552). Try the Caribbean paella with shrimp, chicken, and sausage over saffron rice, or the classic Mexican dish, arroz con pollo. There's a choice of sandwiches and subs if your tastes run closer to home.
