Menu goes Continental

TABLE TALK

August 26, 1994|By Elizabeth Large

Dici Naz Velleggia's thrived in the spot for a couple of decades. Its successor, Enrico's, was there for about 10 months. Now Hampton's of Towson (no relation to the Hampton's downtown) has opened at 204 E. Joppa Road, (410) 821-8888. The new menu is Continental, not the Italian-American food its predecessors specialized in. Bargain hunters will appreciate the light fare complete dinners for $10.95, offered 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Entrees on the regular dinner menu average $16.

* With chef Mark Henry's departure, the Milton Inn in Sparks has been careful not to make any major changes: It ain't broke, in other words. But Baltimore's favorite worth-the-drive, special-occasion restaurant is offering for the first time a four-course prix fixe menu for $47.50. (If you count the complimentary hors d'oeuvres at the beginning of the meal and the chocolates at the end made by the pastry chef, it's six courses.)

Not interested? You can still order from the a la carte menu, but entrees are now all one price ($26), as are appetizers ($8.75).

* When Pete and Sam Kourtounis bought the Towson Inn, a k a the Towson Diner, at 719 York Road, they made major changes. The renovation is finished now, and what may be the largest menu in town is in place. "The food is good, fast and inexpensive," one reader called in to say. There are Greek specialties and just about everything else, with prices ranging from $3.50 to $14. All the food, including the pastries, is made on the premises.
