A new restaurant named Fork & Wrench will open soon in the Canton location where Good Love, and more recently, Pur, used to be. An industry insider who has been inside told me that Fork & Wrench is like nothing he's ever seen in Baltimore. Co-owner Andy Gruver doesn't deny it. "I don't see any place like this around here," he said. He and Jason Sanchez, formerly of Good Love, have spent the last two years hand-crafting the interior themselves. Gruver called on some of his film industry friends, mostly set designers, to help out with the interior.

Cyrus Keefer has left Fork & Wrench. The chef's last day at the Canton restaurant was Sunday. Keefer moved from Birroteca to Fork & Wrench last May, when he took over the kitchen from the restaurant's original chef, Sajin Renae.   Keefer said he will be re-teaming his former employers, Andrew Dunlap and Sean White, for whom he worked at 1542 Gastropub, their ambitious but short-lived successor to The Reserve in South Baltimore. "It broke our hearts to walk away from [1542 Gastropub]

Spoons in Federal Hill is glamming it up. The menu has expanded, and a new (old) face is in the kitchen. Champagne Tony is back in town. The Federal Hill cafe, which opened in 1999, has shifted gears slightly. Spoons will still operate as a classic coffeehouse during the day, serving breakfast and sandwiches, the kind of place where folks curl up with a laptop for hours. Laura Lippman will still be able to come in to pound out a Tess Monoghan procedural. But at night, Spoons gets a little more romantic, a little Lady and the Trampish, maybe.

The owners of Canton's Fork & Wrench have signed a 10-year lease for a restaurant space at Union Wharf, the Bozzuto Group's new luxury apartment complex on Wolfe Street in Fells Point. The yet-to-be-named restaurant will open sometime in the spring of 2014, according to Andy Gruver, who opened Fork & Wrench in the spring of 2012 with Jason Sanchez. Sanchez will be a partner in the new restaurant, too, Gruver said. Early-stage planning for the restaurant, which Gruver and Sanchez will be building out themselves, calls for a hybrid market and dining space.

An argument at an Annapolis Thanksgiving dinner ended with a 27-year-old woman stabbing her half brother in the neck with a serving fork, police said. Police said the stabbing took place in the 1100 block of Madison St. Shenika Allsup, 27, and Deonte Antionio Wallace, 23, had been arguing. When the spat escalated, she used the fork as a weapon, according to a police report. An officer who responded found Wallace in the parking lot of an apartment building, clutching his neck and wearing a bloodied white T-shirt, the report shows.

WHITE man speak with forked tongue," observed several generations of Hollywood Indians, all of whom seemed to know what they were talking about even though present-day moralizers would probably convict them of political incorrectness in the first degree.To this day, the words come back to me whenever I contemplate the history of American racial relationships. All unwhite Americans would surely be better equipped for survival if they had grown up in homes with that Hollywood-Indian wisdom framed in needlepoint over the velveteen settee.

At the Fork & Wrench, the new bar/restaurant in Canton, spirits are laid out in an antique general-store display case. The beer flows from a custom-made, steampunk-esque tap. Old-time woodworking tools hang throughout the bar for effect, and cute knickknacks abound - a raised shelf filled with secondhand books here, old matchboxes tucked away there. There are porcelain dolls and misshapen canteens and vintage photographs. It all looks very pretty, but it also looks very tired.

After returning from a trip to London and Prague, I have a question: How and when did we (Americans) develop a different way of using our knives and forks? I think the European way seems much more efficient. For readers less well-traveled than you, let us distinguish between the American and European styles of eating. A right-handed person eating in the European manner holds the knife in her right hand, the fork in her left. With the tines of the fork facing down, she pins the food to her plate and uses her knife to cut. Then, still using the fork in her left hand, she conveys the food to her mouth, the tines still facing downward.

Today's etiquette topic is: Proper Table (burp) Manners.I have here a letter from Jean Gerdes, who teaches family and consumer science to sixth-graders at the Donegal Middle School in Marietta, Pa. She states:"I would like to ask your help in teaching my students the importance of good manners. I have found that if they can see how good manners might help them in their future, they are more motivated to learn and practice them. It would be a great help if you could write a brief letter about what is involved in your profession and how manners, particularly table manners, impact your career."

A truly ironic position by our County Executive Kevin Kamenetz who proclaims the environmental positives of trees (Towson Times, May 1, "Kamenetz plans to increase county forest county canopy") yet makes the decision to destroy 10 acres of hardwood trees in Mays Chapel Park in order to build an elementary school there. This man is a true snake oil salesman, who is willing to destroy the infrastructure of one community to benefit his political agenda in another. Obviously common decency is lacking.

It took almost 56 years, but I've finally mastered my table manners, and in the process learned something about the curious and controversial history of the fork. And all it took was two hours of bearing up under Carol Haislip's patrician gaze as she waved the silver instrument of torture with the twisted prong known as a "butter pick" through the air, perilously close to my throat. Possibly, the danger was all in my mind. It's true that I lack the higher, lower and intermediate social graces - I am a child of the lawless '70s, after all. And it's equally true that I had never fully grasped silverware's potential for inflicting bodily harm until I attended "Fish Forks and Finger Bowls," a seminar that teaches table manners to adults.

Drivers who buy their car insurance through the Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund, the state's auto insurer of last resort, seem always to be the door mats of the State House, but that comparison might be too generous. Rugs get a little respect every once in a while. For years, we have groused that MAIF customers — and there are about 36,000 of them on any given day — are legally fleeced by premium finance companies. Under state law, MAIF must collect insurance premiums in advance, but since most customers don't have the money for a year's worth of coverage (on average, at a cost of about $1,800)

"Hi Guv'nor," a customer greets the silver-haired Mark Danenmann, presiding at Fork Hardware, where he's been a fixture longer than the nuts and bolts he shelves. People call the store "Mark's," because hardware and Danenmann's own brand of local wisdom have been hand-in-hand for 45 years. In the Harford Road community of about 80 homes, he's known as the unofficial mayor, dogcatcher and chief of police."Fork was never a town," Danenmann said, "just a post office location. No Andy Griffith, no Barney Fife.

The crowds have found Fork & Wrench, a white-hot new spot on Boston Street. They're enjoying the smartly constructed launch menu from executive chef Sajin Renae, formerly of Vino Rosina. It's a model first menu, small enough for a new kitchen to manage but with a good balance of the everyday and the edgy — hanger steaks and seared tuna Nicoise on one hand, rabbit pie and seared Magret duck breast on the other. But folks are also piling in to bask in the beauty. Fork & Wrench is a knockout.
