Roland Park Cafe


January 04, 1992|By Linell Smith

413 W. Cold Spring Lane. Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays to Thursdays; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Call (410) 889-2233. This recent arrival to Roland Park offers a variety of carryout entrees ranging from Cajun-styled chicken to Crab Norfolk . . . and with enough Thai appetizers, pasta concoctions and vegetable cheese melts to appeal to any palate.

Located in the space formerly occupied by Fiske's Cafe, the restaurant also serves lump crab cakes, served at market price, seafood jambalaya ($11.95), Cornish game hen Roland Park ($9.95), twin double cut lamb chops ($12.50), and aged New York Strip Steak served au poivre ($14.95).

For dinner, I enjoyed the straw and hay pasta, a delicious blend of egg noodles and spinach fettucini in a creamy sauce, served with salad and garlic bread for $7.95.

For lunch, I ordered the chunky chicken salad platter for $5.95. The pieces of chicken were quite large and juicy; it was the sort of salad that you might remember from the house of a favorite older relative. The accompanying fresh fruit includes fresh pineapple, apples, grapes and seasonal fruits.

Other salad platters include the "Iam Salad" ($4.95), chopped lettuce, onion, egg, tomato and anchovies topped with garlic vinaigrette, and The Living Thin salad ($6.95) with turkey and shrimp and hearts of palm and artichoke and blue cheese crumbs.

The Roland Park Cafe has several soups every day including crab, French onion and a variety of such soups de jour such as seafood bisque.
