Eat 2005

By Michelle Gienow | Posted 3/2/2005

Ever hungry for restaurant-quality food but just don't frigging feel like sitting in a restaurant to eat it? Carry-out options (pizza, subs, Chinese, fast food) are generally dismal instead of delicious--unless you head to one of these fine establishments. They don't deliver, alas, so in order to have the fine dining on your very own couch you'll have to actually go there, but, as Stephen Wright once opined, you can't have everything, where would you put it?

Atwater's/Ploughboy Soups, A loaf of bread, a hearty bowl of homemade soup, and thou, o TV remote.

Blue Moon Café, Don't want to wait in line for brunch? Call ahead and carry out French toast past the hungry hordes.

Chinatown Café, Who says all Baltimore Chinese food is sub-par?

Di Pasquale's, Put together a selection of tapas at your own table, plus wine to go.

Edo Sushi, Eating sushi, watching Godzilla on cable.

Fazzini's Italian Kitchen, Little Italy-quality dining, for less cash and on your couch.

Saigon Remembered, Vietnamese food on your very own so-pho.

Samos, Sofa-kopita!

Thai One On/San Sushi II, Sum yum at home.
