    Soft crabReview
                                                               I had a Soft Crab. It was Incredible taste. I have never tasted anyone like this. 
                                                               If you have this dish, you don't need to brake any shell of this crab. 
                                                               I can't describe a moment of bite.

                    The French Press         
        by Mark McTague


    There are many places to buy coffee in Towson - Starbucks alone has several locations - so you don't have to go to The French Press, but you should.  I went there on a Friday two weeks ago, and I was pleasantly surprised.  The first thing I noticed was how bright it is inside.  The picture above is the upstairs section, and it's perfect for a quiet discussion or dining alone (they have a tasty menu), but the downstairs, near the front door, is like the sitting room of a house.  Two enormous picture windows let in tons of sunshine, and the white walls and ceiling reflect it, making this a room impossible to be sad in.  In addition to plenty of small tables and chairs, there is a comfortable armchair and sofa for talking with friends or just relaxing with the newspaper or your book.  I could have spent all afternoon there.
    The menu is equally attractive, from simple and more exotic appetizers (cheese and fruit plates to bruschetta or crab and artichoke dip) to salads, quiches, and a variety of delicious panini sandwiches.  You can also order breakfast all day long.  Of course, there is a variety of coffees - standard Costa Rican, Guatemalan, and Colombian to the more exotic Kenyan, Sumatran, and Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.  Bring your own mug if you want.  They'll be happy to fill it.
    This coffee house / restaurant occupies a renovated single-family home on the corner of Delaware and Chesapeake Avenues, across the street from the County Courthouse and the Towson Library, and it's perfect for lunch or a late-afternoon pick-me-up.  You can also spend an hour or so there in the evening as it's open till 8 M-F and till 7 on Saturday.
    Sultan has been there, and he likes the music.  He said they have a woman guitarist who plays in the evening.  But he's not sure if it's every day or not.  The coffee is okay, but he said he prefers Starbucks.  I like my coffee shops like I like my bookstores - small, local, and independent.  I asked him if he'd go there again.  He said, "Maybe."  Me?  Definitely.

    Address: 1 W. Pennsylvania Ave.
    Towson, MD 21204
    The price of the sushi you choose depends on the color of the plate it on which it sits. ($2.50, $4.50, or $5.50). When your meal’s over, a server totals up the stack of plates sitting on the bar in front of you. In additian, you can order appetizers, soup, salads, udon, don-buri, sashimi, tempura, and teriyaki there.
    The boss, Tony Yan, said the three important saling points were small potion, eyeable, and quickness. Obviously, it is a good place for lunch.
