"Will be open now until 8 p.m. by popular demand," was the entire content of the news release I got late Tuesday evening from Suburban House.
But it need not say more.
That's right. The popular, vibrant —with it's Pikesville Patch award-winning matzah ball soup, and its kitsch paper placemat that's an amusing dictionary of Yiddish—will be open one hour later each night.
That means that people like me who keep a later dinnertime than, well, many, will have a casual place to go at 7 p.m.—other than Lenny's Deli in Owings Mills.
This is good news, in some ways a blessing 'from above,' and probably a schedule-changer for many a Pikesvillian.
There have been at least one dozen times during the past year when I've lost track of the hour, arrived at the restaurant and deli, only to find that the last remaining guests were just leaving.
The additional hour daily should remedy that.
'By popular demand.' I wonder if that means that, as they've locked up for the night, they've seen even more disappointed customers turn back toward the parking lot?
Hours at Suburban House are now Monday through Sunday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
