Jaffar Helie, owner of the popular but low-frills Roma's and Waterloo pizza restaurants in Howard County, has now opened Cazbar Kebap House , a small restaurant selling Turkish food. Its menu is modeled on a similarly themed restaurant in Baltimore, also called Cazbar, which is owned by a friend. If the two have their way, you'll see more Cazbar restaurants soon, Helie said. The Cazbar in Columbia occupies a prime location, practically across the street from Howard Community College, but it's hard to spot if you're driving by and don't know to look for it. When we visited, the restaurant had been open about six weeks.

And for Doner, this one was.Doner had built a sports bar in the lobby of its Detroit office in only three days in late 1993. Executives from G. Heileman Brewing Co. were coming, and Doner was pulling out all stops to woo an old client it lost during the advertising slowdown of 1990.Reclaiming Heileman's $7 million annual account was a chance to confirm that Doner had bounced back from the recession.
