Cajun at Fat Lulu's


August 12, 1994|By Elizabeth Large

Anew Cajun and Creole restaurant, Fat Lulu's, opened a couple of weeks ago at 1818 Maryland Ave. Eventually you'll be able to get dinner and a show there, but right now the management is concentrating on the kitchen, which is turning out shrimp gumbo, chicken jambalaya, Bourbon Street trout, blackened catfish with Louisiana crayfish sauce, red beans and rice with ham hocks, and crayfish pie. Entrees are priced from $9 to $16. Manager Eugene Jones promises "good music and good food at the same time" and says that valet parking should be available as soon as the details are worked out. The phone number is (410) 685-4665.

* Baltimoreans just aren't going to eat at a seafood restaurant that doesn't serve crab cakes -- or so the recent demise of L&N Seafood, a chain that's done well elsewhere in the country, seems to suggest. The Towson Commons space won't stay empty long, though. Negotiations are on to bring in a new Ruby Tuesday restaurant, the third to open in the Baltimore area.

* Some places have karaoke nights to draw in the customers. A classy Italian restaurant like Piccolo's in Columbia offers opera nights on the third Monday of the month. Three singers and a piano player from the Baltimore Washington Metropolitan Repertory Opera perform two sets, starting at 7:30 p.m.

And there's renovation news from the Howard County Piccolo's, sibling to the one in Fells Point: The restaurant has recently added an outdoor patio, changed the bar and put in more windows. "Our customers kept asking for windows," says general manager Linda Starbuck.
