A glimmer of hope regarding ChokChai?

File under complete speculation:
At the end of February, I spoke to the owner of ChokChai, who told me he was hoping to open in a week, pending some issues with BGE being worked out. Obviously to those who have been paying attention to our local Thai eatery, this has not happened. Today however, there was extensive BGE work going on just outside ChokChai's new location. The entire street was dug up. Again, just speculation, but I had all but given up hope.

Darlin' Clementine

It looks like investors have finally caught on to the fact that Hamilton is full of affordable real estate and hungry people. Recently opening in downtown Hamilton is Clementine at 5402 Harford Road, which we know is in the heart of Hamilton, and not in Lauraville as was reported by critic Elizabeth Large in the Baltimore Sun recently. Clementine is open for business, and word is that Christopher Curmudgeon approves. Here's a copy of the menu.

According to the Sun article, there's also a major transformation going on at the Hamilton Tavern, which is owned by one of the partners at Brewer's Art. Elizabeth Large has done me wrong before with her less-than-accurate reviews. Please don't toy with me Lizzie ....
