About the restaurant
In May 2021, this 40year-old-neighborhood gem on a hill underwent a full renovation. Venetian Palace is now sporting new digs with crisp modern decor and an expanded wine list. The impetus for the revamp was new ownership. Yes, the rumors are true... Valentino’s Restaurant Group which began in NE Baltimore city has now come to Harford County!

The food is better than ever, with highlights being the seafood pasta, the jumbo lump crab cakes, the grilled lamb chops, artisan handhelds, and the breakfast choices served all day.  Whether you are dining in or picking up carry-out do not forget the dessert!

Come as you are, the staff is knowledgeable and ready to serve.  We also offer our entire menu for carryout.  For your convenience, The Venetian Italian Eatery has teamed with Doordash, GrubHub & Uber Eats.  

Buon appetito!

About the restaurant
Water for Chocolate provides an intimate and savory experience with a nod to personal space and service.
Chef Sean Guy and his team prepares creative dishes using seasonal ingredients with the best of intentions.
The result is a fresh, eclectic take on comfort food that elevates the familiar to wow!!
Pairings with "holistic cocktails" such as the house brewed ginger beer and a selected wine portfolio allows for guests to create real dining memories.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Mikey and Mel’s, a living tribute to two great men who knew and loved a great deli experience. Our dad, Mikey and grandfather, Mel were deli “regulars,” dining at their favorite Cleveland, Ohio places. Mikey and grandfather. They savored juicy pastrami and corned beef, amazingly fresh pickles and intensely huge deserts. Their daily deli lunches were times to conduct business, strike deals and make friends. We often joined our dad and grandfather at the deli table. We remember the sights, smells and sounds of our favorite local deli–from the simple comforting decor to the aroma of deli meats and sour pickles. We also recall the brash and snarky staff. While we will always miss Mikey and Mel, we’ve decided there’s no better way to pay homage to two great men than by opening an old fashioned deli named for them. We are proud to invite you to enhance your own deli traditions here at Mikey and Mel’s.

You will get a fantastic array of traditional American cuisine with options for takeout and catering. Our American restaurant is unlike any other, with meals at any time of day or night.The secret to our success is the mind behind our new menu.

With more than 15 years of experience in the industry, his time living in Greece and his Hispanic influences infuse the unique flavor of our menu items. Mr. Jose Joel Molina's parents lived in Morrocco, and he speaks several languages, including Spanish, French, English, Arabic, and Italian.

It was a cute place. A little unclear about the seating process when you walk in the door and a little tight but overall typical of a downtown location. The staff were friendly but not immediately clarity on who was actually serving us. I don’t know who I actually gave the to. Food was good and fresh.

About the restaurant
IMPORTANT: If you want to reserve an OUTDOOR table, you MUST select the "Outdoor" seating option in Open Table. If Open Table does not offer that option, then that means they are all reserved. ("Standard" means an indoor table.)

To our Indoor Diners: we are fortunate to have a very sophisticated small particle air filtration system in our dining room, thanks to the museum.

If you encounter any problems with booking online, please do not hesitate call us at 410-889-3399 so we can personally assist you. Thank you!

About the restaurant
The Point in Towson is a completely renovated restaurant and bar in the Towson marketplace. It will be the second location stemming from The Point in Fells, an 8 year strong restaurant placed squarely on the waterfront in the heart of Baltimore’s ever competitive and popular Fells Point neighborhood. We focus on upscale American pub and comfort food with a twist and a bar focused on reinventing classic craft cocktails. We are an upscale bar focused on excellent food. A place where you always know you will get the best of everything. The Point in Towson will feature wooden fixtures, back deck and game room, a large communal dining room, comfortable furnishings and decor with soothing warm tones. It is be the perfect place to stop in for a bite to eat, for a drink, a small business meeting, an Orioles game and everything in between.
