When Baltimore restaurateur Casey Jenkins opens the Birdland Sports Bar & Grill on Belair Road this month, it will be one of a few sit-down restaurants along the commercial strip. But he, and many others, hope it won't be the last. City, county and neighborhood groups are coalescing around efforts to revitalize the U.S. 1 drag, a corridor once known for its car dealerships and now a hodgepodge of rim shops, takeout joints and convenience stores. Some $5 million in city, state and federal money is being directed to street improvements, a first step to drawing new business to the area.

Remember the Krispy Kreme craze of the 1990s? Maryland got its first Krispy Kreme store in 1998, and you'd have thought they were giving away Cronuts. There were hundreds of people in line on a Tuesday morning in November, when the first Baltimore-area shop opened on Belair Road in Fullerton. The fame of Krispy Kreme had spread fast and wide after the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based doughnut company began offering franchises in 1995. Before then, the melt-in-your-mouth doughnuts had enjoyed only regional fame.
