An email was forwarded to me announcing Wednesday night's reopening of Kaufman's Tavern in Gambrills.
I gave Kaufmann's a call, and manager Daniel Carr confirmed that the sprawling restaurant would be open on Wednesday, Aug. 31, the first night since Hurricane Irene came through town and knocked Kaufmann's for a loop.
Irene did a number on Kaufmann's, smashing a tree down on a car its lot and generally playing havoc with the expansive deck area that had been remodeled only this past spring. Kaufmann's lost a lot of food, too, Carr said.
Carr said he wasn't surprised that I had never heard of Kaufmann's, which has been open since 1937. "We're a little off the beaten path," Carr said. Kaufmann's has been under its present ownership for the past eight or nine years, Carr said.
Are there other restuarants that are still working to ge themselves open?
