A new team

Some readers never noticed that until recently The Sun had two restaurant critics. I would write the reviews that appear in the Sunday Home & Family section, but not the write-ups of the more casual places in this section. (See opposite page.)

Now, however, The Sun has three restaurant critics. Husband and wife David Richardson and Cameron Barry have just taken over the Live reviews. The two are serious eaters who know the Baltimore area well. They've written about casual restaurants for Baltimore magazine in the past, so they are experienced cheap-eats critics.

The new Louie's

I stopped by the newly reopened Louie's Cafe (518 N. Charles St.) for lunch recently. Note that it's no longer Louie's the Bookstore Cafe. The bookstore is now located in the basement, and the space it once occupied has been turned into a handsome lounge area where coffee and drinks are served. It's too early for a review of the food; but unless you cling to the old, you'll like the renovations. And the service is less funky and more polished than it used to be.
