In Canton, a Wild Mushroom


March 17, 1995|By Elizabeth Large

Jennifer Price, who was a sous chef at M. Gettier and worked at Piccolo's in Columbia, has opened a restaurant of her own in Canton with her husband and parents. The Wild Mushroom, at 641 S. Montford Ave., specializes in dishes using exotic fungi, but you'll also find food as homey as chicken pot pie on the menu. The phone number is (410) 675-4225.

* The Early Edition Cafe in Stevenson Village Center has the distinction of being the area's newest coffee house. Besides specialty coffee drinks, owners Margaret and Preston Beall provide their grateful customers with gourmet baked goods, two homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts from Happy Endings and one hot entree every day from Taylor Royall Caterers (such as ham and savory phyllo pastry or three cheese rigatoni). The tiny cafe seats only 12 right now; but when the weather gets warmer, more tables will be put outdoors.

"We plan to do nice little coffee house things like live music," promises Margaret Beall.

Call (410) 608-8890 for more information.

* Germano's in Little Italy has a new chef, straight from Italy, working with executive chef Linda Hults. Ammanuelle Fabiani (no relation to owner Germano Fabiani) was discovered when he answered an ad in a Florence newspaper. His specialties, including dishes like gnocchi pontigiana and penne with artichokes, are already a hit with customers interested in authentic regional food.

* On Monday, celebrate the Persian new year at the Orchard Market & Cafe. The four-course special menu includes appetizers; salads; a choice of duck Fesenjune, roast lamb or rockfish with herbed basmati rice; and dessert. The cost is $24.95. Call (410) 339-7700 for reservations.

* Legends at 213 Main St. in Salisbury is under new management. Changes include a new atrium and an "upscale, Continental, reasonably priced" menu, according to executive chef Dan Lovely. That means dishes like pan-seared salmon with three peppers and grilled tenderloin with seasonal vegetables. Call (410) 749-7717 for more information.
