An institution on Roland Avenue, Eddie's of Roland Park recently opened a larger supermarket with carryout deli. Aside from the usual cold meats, there's a large selection of entrees and side dishes, some of which may change daily, or simply run out. On the two occasions I was there they ranged from potato salad ($1.99 a pound) to chopped liver ($5.59), sesame noodles ($4.99), chicken Marsala ($9.99), shrimp salad ($16.99) and even beef Wellington ($18.99). Some items are sold by the piece, such as crab cakes ($5.50 each) and a whole barbecued chicken ($5.95). And some of these do need heating up at home.

The bakery sells a variety of breads, including items from the much-admired Stone Mill Bakery, and lots of desserts ranging from lemon bars (59 cents each) to whole pies and cakes.

Of the dishes that several of us tried, we found the meat loaf ($3.99 a pound) solidly flavorful, the sliced turkey ($9.99 a pound) on the dry side but helped by its stuffing of spinach and pine nuts. Redskin potato salad was a hit, Italian style green beans ($4.99 a pound) had better flavor than texture, vegetable pasta salad ($4.59 a pound) proved adequate. The Stone Mill's focaccia (Italian flat bread at $3.99 a pound) was a big hit, and the lemon bar beat out the very rich pumpkin cheesecake ($2.29 a slice).

Eddie's also offers a lengthy Thanksgiving menu from stuffed turkey with gravy ($3.49 a pound) to pork tenderloin ($9.99 a pound) to pumpkin or apple pie ($7.99 each).
