Morton's for lunch

People who want to try Morton's of Chicago without paying its premium dinner prices will have the opportunity Dec. 12 and 19 when the steakhouse in the Sheraton Inner Harbor will be open for holiday lunches. There will be a prix-fixe menu, with multi-course offerings ranging from $22.95 to $30.95. Think that's expensive for lunch? Believe me, it's a bargain compared to dinner.

More Egyptian pizza

I've been hearing good things about the new Cafe Isis at 12240 Tullamore Road in Timonium. It turns out that Isis is another version of the Al Pacino Cafe, which has made Egyptian pizza (and other Middle Eastern specialties) famous at various locations in the area.

No substitutions

And speaking of Timonium, I had a very good wrap sandwich for lunch at Ralphie's Diner the other day: warm grilled chicken and Caesar salad in a tomato-flavored tortilla. But the kitchen refused to substitute the vegetable of the day for the french fries that came with the sandwich. (A la carte the fries cost $1.95, the vegetable $1.50.) Does that make sense? Whatever happened to customer service?

That's a Wrapp

And speaking of wraps, Urban Wrapps has opened up downtown at 111 Water St. You can get vegetables in a red chili tortilla; chicken in buffalo wing sauce with blue cheese and mozzarella in a honey whole wheat tortilla; and a steak fajita wrap. Urban Wrapps, by the way, is a bar, not just a funky little eatery.
