By E.T. MOORE SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - A top-end restaurant wants patrons to feel like royalty, being served exquisite food by attentive servers in a sumptuous setting. Shaharazade's Tea Room and Restaurant, a new establishment in Shepherdstown, comes close to hitting this mark. Although my party had complaints on our recent visit, overall, we were pleased. I predict Shaharazade's will only get better as the restaurant matures. A few minutes after my seven-member party was seated at Shaharazade's, we were in agreement on two points: n This was one of the most beautiful and exotic restaurants we had been in. n We were upset at how we were being served.

A meal at Aqua 103 in Hagerstown's north end is a delight to your senses, but you must be prepared to pay the price of fine dining brought to you with a little flourish and much skill.

The building looks like a standard office building, making the inside of the restaurant a surprise.

Don't mistakenly call Flying Pie Co. a pizza shop. This one is more special than that - it makes pies. The company's Potomac Street location has seen a bunch of other restaurants come and go, but I think this one might just stick around for a while. My friends, Pap Ricka and Mack Aroni, recently invited me to join them for dinner. As with previous versions of the restaurant, there are two sections to the place. We entered through the door on the right into the bar area. We wanted dinner, so we didn't stop, but it was inviting enough to contemplate future after-work stops for a beer.

Mullendore had contacted town officials to express concerns about the ability for deputies to enforce the noise and loitering proposals.
