The meat counter is empty and the bakery shelves bare. The sushi station is oddly quiet, too. After 14 years of offering Pikesville shoppers fancy foods they couldn't find in regular groceries, Sutton Place Gourmet is closing its Woodholme Shopping Center location. The store, Sutton's only location in the Baltimore area, began selling nonperishables at a 30 percent discount Wednesday and expects to stop operations for good by Jan. 18. The gourmet grocer follows the fate of some other upscale retailers, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, that have left the area over the years.

I walked into the Sutton Place Gourmet in Pikesville and my spirits soared with anticipation. Beautiful produce and a wonderful selection of cheeses beckoned. It looked like the perfect place to grab a gourmet dinner to go. Alas, looks can be deceiving. Sutton Place, part of a Maryland-D.C.-Virginia chain specializing in high-end foods and catering, sits in the Woodholme Shopping Center only a couple of blocks north of the Beltway on Reisterstown Road. You can order a sandwich from the deli or make your own salad.

Though it's a little pricey to slosh on with abandon, included recipes suggest stretching the sauce by adding everything from Italian salad dressing to apple jelly.
