A winner expands

First it was the Bombay Grill in Mount Vernon. It did so well the owners opened the Bombay Peacock Grill in Columbia. Now they've opened a third restaurant, the Cafe Bombay, at 114 E. Lombard St. Although its hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, the self-styled bistro is more casual than its siblings; and the manager says they concentrate on lunch and parties. Specialties include kebobs, curries and Indian vegetarian burgers.

Sophisticated Thai

Pornpilai Boonn worked as a doctor of pathology until she quit to raise two kids. But once the younger one left for college, Dr. Boonn decided not to return to the medical profession but to open her own Thai restaurant. She took over the Bangkok Delight at 8825 Centre Park Drive, Columbia, a few months ago and since then has been producing some of the most sophisticated and delicious Thai food in the area -- both classics like pad thai and innovative specials like Thai flounder with spaghetti squash.

More flexible Milton Inn

When Roland Unger and Lynn Patrick bought out partner John Tilghman at the beginning of the year, they didn't plan any major changes for the Milton Inn. But according to Mr. Patrick, they want to be a little more flexible, "a little more user friendly." As of this week, seasonal specials have been resumed, and the owners plan to modify the fixed-price menu to include a two-course dinner.
