Dine & Dish: Sandwich City serves crowd more than sandwiches

Sandwich City serves more than just sandwiches? That was my surprised thought as I surveyed the diner's interior, warm with the scents of fried chicken, mac and cheese, and Southern veggies.

Dine & Dish: Abel Brown new hot spot for oysters

I love oysters, and whenever they're part of a meal, it becomes a special occasion. So when Bistro 491 closed and then reopened as Abel Brown, a new oyster house concept, I knew I had to go check it out.

Dine & Dish: Panda Express cooks Chinese for the calorie-conscious

On a recent trip to Panda Express, I zeroed in on the 250-calorie or less options - which make up about half of their entrees.

Dine & Dish: Calvert's sunset dinner whets appetite

Calvert's is definitely a special occasion kind of place, but many may not know that the restaurant offers a prix fixe menu from 5 to 6:30 p.m. that makes it easy for discriminating diners with thin wallets to enjoy the experience too.

Dine & Dish: Whole Foods has whole lot of treats

Walking in Augusta's new Whole Foods for the first time was almost like Christmas or the first day of vacation. So many pretty fruits and vegetables! A salt bar, freshly ground nut butters, beautiful pearly seafood - and oh, those scallops!
