With Mother's Day in the offing, consider Sunday brunch as a great gift. Actually, brunch seems like a well-deserved indulgence any time of year, for any of us.  The sit-down-and-be-served Sunday brunch at The Kings Contrivance Restaurant is easy and effortless. Except, of course, for deciding what you want to order. But then you get to enjoy a bit of the bubbly while you ponder what goodies you want next. Part of the attraction of The Kings Contrivance, which opened in 1962, is the charming Federal-style mansion that is its home.

Food *** (3 stars) Service *** (3 stars) Atmosphere *** (3 stars) Howard County, which, for whatever reason, is long on franchise eating places and short on fine dining, has had one notable exception since the 1960s: the Kings Contrivance. It was one of the first restaurants in the area to offer Continental dining, and now is one of the last. There's a sense of a different era about this place, even though the 1890s mansion has just gone through a major renovation to make it seem as fresh as a shiny new penny.

The excitement Mary Tomasetti felt when she heard that a Harris Teeter store was coming to the Kings Contrivance Village Center had faded over the months as she waited for demolition to begin on the vacant buildings where the upscale supermarket would be built. "It has taken so long," said Tomasetti, 84, who lives nearby. "I really began to give up. I didn't know if it was going to come here anymore." Tomasetti's worries were put to rest as the arm of a backhoe began clawing away yesterday morning at the bricks, aluminum siding and roof of the vacant building that formerly housed a Safeway grocery store.
