Pikesville welcomes new eateries

January 30, 2013 by  

The Pikesville, Maryland, area is set to welcome two new ethnic restaurants, Buca di Beppo and Easta La Vista, it was reported earlier this month.

Easta La Vista opened in Pikesville itself, at 1330 Reisterstown Road, in the space formerly occupied by Strapazza Italian Restaurant. Although the name suggests that the new concern is also Italian, it’s not. Easta La Vista describes itself as serving “authentic Kosher Middle Eastern Cuisine”, suitable for the entire family. The dishes served by the new restaurant include falafel, shawarma, sambusak, and more familiar fare like shish kabobs. They also have a wide range of rich and flavorful desserts.

Buca di Beppo opened in the White Marsh Mall in White Marsh – a planned community that is a Baltimore suburb located about 18 miles from Pikesville. Buca di Beppo is a national chain with 86 locations throughout the United States. It features traditional Italian food such as baked lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, and eggplant parmigiana, along with salads, sides and decadent desserts. The food is served family style, that is, the portions are made deliberately large so that they can be passed around and shared. This reflects the way Italian families gather around the table for a meal at home.

These restaurateurs could consider working with shops that provide flyer printing services to design colorful materials to advertise their openings. They could also consider contacting banner printers to make celebratory banners to hang over their doors to welcome new customers, as well as working with poster printers to create display menus.
