If you want to try Sterling's tasty fare – people in Baltimore have been doing so for over 65 years – you'd better hurry. This Baltimore staple in the working class neighborhood of Remington is going on the auction block on July 7. Why? The reasons are probably myriad. It's a take-out place that's not quite where their customers live. Owner Dorothy Goff is getting older (as are we all!) and owns The Seasoned Mariner in Dundalk. That restaurant is located on prime real estate, Bear Creek and its interior needs a facelift; no doubt it rates as the better investment of the two establishments. Hot seafood sandwiches are best eaten right away on site, so they don't get soggy. The seafood sub is the way to go! A huge, crunchy fried shrimp, oyster, scallop and piece of fried haddock (or other combination) share space with a medium crab cake.
- Seafood: ""They" say to order 2 "halves" instead of the whole seafood sub . . . something about more/better distribution of seafood. A half is plenty for even the heartiest eater!"
- Best for Seafood Because: This neighborhood legend for over 65 years may get sold to another seafood restaurant when it goes on the auction block on July 7.
