I have a confession to make. I kind of love Red Lobster. Yes, I live in the land of the jumbo lump crabcakes and fresh rockfish, but there's something oddly comforting for me about the chain restaurant that my dad took me to as a kid. I'm known for forcing my uppity Maryland friends to make the trek to White Marsh or Columbia or now Arundel Mills! (What can I say I'm a fan.) Once a busboy stopped my party from being seated because the table was "still a little buttery. " I loved it. So I have been watching with concern as my favorite chain restaurant has fallen on hard times.

Arlene Bird from Sonoma, Calif., was looking for the recipe for the rich and delicious cheese biscuits that are served warm with every order at the Red Lobster restaurant chain. She clearly is not be alone in her craving for these biscuits because Shirley Zehner from Baltimore sent in a copy of the recipe that was published in the August 1994 issue of Ladies' Home Journal. Just like Bird, several readers had written to the magazine and asked them to obtain the recipe for the biscuits from the restaurant chain.

As he was closing the Columbia Red Lobster just after midnight Jan. 10, kitchen manager Sean Lawrence was attacked by two robbers who bound, pistol-whipped and threatened to kill him before finally leaving the restaurant. For his trouble, Lawrence was fired by Red Lobster a day later, apparently because he had violated the company's security regulations. Lawrence is left with stiff muscles, a welt on his head and a sense of bewilderment. "I was fired for getting robbed," he said. The restaurant, in Snowden Square Shopping Center, referred all questions to its corporate headquarters in Florida, where a spokesman declined to comment on Lawrence's case, except to confirm that he no longer works for the company.

Marylanders do not live by crabs alone. In fact, when it comes to eating, we can pack it away with the best of them, according to some national restaurateurs. The Chili's restaurant on Baltimore's Northern Parkway is among the top 10 in sales volume in the 260-unit chain; a smaller Chili's in Bel Air is in the top 25. Chi-Chi's in Timonium is fourth in sales in the 223-unit chain. And the Red Lobster that opened in White Marsh two months ago has been feeding 10,000 people a week!Evening Sun staff writer Michael Dresser recent described how the Baltimore region -- awash in two-income households, but starved for time in food preparation -- has become increasingly attractive to chain restaurants, from Sfuzzi and Ruth's Chris Steak House in the city, to the Silver Diner in Towson, to others beyond the beltway.

It was a minor miracle. Somehow, Kiran, Tiara, Alonzo and their parents awoke in time for the 8 a.m. service. They threw on their Sunday best, jumped into the minivan and drove the 20 minutes from their Upper Marlboro home to Covenant Baptist Church in Southwest Washington, D.C. Breathlessly, but with moments to spare, the family slides into a pew toward the front of the church. The sanctuary is bright, and the service, filled with hymns and "holy hugs" among congregants, offers joyful possibilities for the new year.

If the planned opening of a Target discount department store in July doesn't spark a commercial boom in the Route 140 business corridor, it might be because the boom has already started.One authority on local commercial real estate said the businesses chasing sites along Route 140 outnumber the sites available. Another says that Target might lure a few smaller businesses nearby to take advantage of the traffic it will generate, but that it is unlikely to spark a new surge in commercial development.
