'Today' show weatherman's visit caps a heady couple of weeks at the Dundalk restaurant.
Costas Inn has been a celebrity magnet over the past couple of weeks, with many high-profile guests stopping in, including former Ravens football player Tony Siragusa as well as several current players. NBC's Al Roker, the weatherman for the Today show, stopped in last week and had what he said during a WBAL radio interview were crabs "the size of your head." "We've had a relationship with Cathy Lee Gifford for years, and we've been on the Today show twice because of her," said Pete Triantafilos, whose family owns the North Point Bouelvard eatery known for its crabs.

A Dundalk institution, the Costas Inn on North Point Boulevard and the restaurant's stuffed lobster tail gets selected among the top local crab dishes.
The cover of Baltimore magazine’s July issue, “Crabtastic!” is a shout out to the city’s best and most creative crab dishes. Noting that there’s never anything wrong with traditional steamed crabs, dishes from 26 area restaurants are highlighted – everything from Canton Dockside’s crab pretzel to Mathew’s Pizza’s crab pie in Highlandtown. Closer to home, Costas Inn’s stuffed lobster tail made the cut – with a half-page photo, too. Here is Baltimore magazine’s take on the Dundalk institution: “Known for classic steamed-crab-and-mallet suppers, Costas Inn (4100 North Point Blvd., Dundalk, 410-477-1975) also has a thing for crab imperial—a heap of crab slathered in creamy white sauce offered atop shrimp, orange roughy, the fish du jour, or …
