Ruby Tuesday -- in case anyone in Baltimore hasn't heard of it -- is the granddaddy of full-service restaurant chains. (The first one opened in 1972.) Mostly around here you find Ruby Tuesdays in malls, but now one has opened next to Borders Books & Music in Towson, where L & N Seafood used to be. (The two chains are owned by the same company.)As far as I could tell, converting L & N to a Ruby Tuesday involved not a lot more than putting up enormous numbers of Tiffany-style lamps, various sports memorabilia and lots of TV screens tuned to ESPN.
