The Highlandtown building that once was Haussner's restaurant is scheduled for auction next month. "I just think it's a good time to do this," said Joseph Schultz, the owner of the roughly 28,000 square foot building, which he bought in 2011. The market is improving, he said, and interest in Highlandtown among investors is high. He's selling the restaurant building, which he said needs to be renovated, along with three other properties at the intersection of Eastern Avenue and South Clinton Street.

What a difference four decades, a bad number, the war on drugs and reality television made: In 1975, National Geographic magazine devoted 27 glossy pages to the hidden charms of Baltimore. In 2014, the National Geographic Channel devotes an hour to the city's degeneracy and proclaims Baltimore "the Heroin Capital of America. " Some Baltimoreans might have saved that old National Geographic, from February 1975, because it provided a great boost to the civic ego. Numerous photographs accompanied Fred Kline's glowing prose.

Good news for Abell is bad news for Highlandtown . Plans to convert the old Haussner's space into a microbrewery have been scrapped. The news that brewer Stephen Demczuk had signed a lease for the oldCapital Beverage Corp. bottling plant in Abell means that Demczuk won't be going into Haussner's after all. Last June , Demczuk was considering Haussner's as the site for a German-style "guest-house" and microbrewery. Demczuk's plans were supported by the Highlandtown community and business associations.

Marie Cox from Bel Air was hoping someone would have the recipe for the creamed spinach that was served at Haussner's restaurant in Baltimore. Sadly, the restaurant closed a number of years ago, but many of their most popular dishes live on in people's memories. Cox said she has tried many recipes for creamed spinach but she has not been able to duplicate the special flavor of the restaurant dish. Carol Hannan from Kingsville had the recipe for the Haussner's creamed spinach that she said was published in the Sunpapers many years ago. She does not know the exact date.

A FRIEND of mine who runs a major art gallery in New York said the other day he'd heard there was this amazing restaurant in Baltimore that had paintings all over the walls.Well, that was easy. It was Haussner's, of course. More than a restaurant, the pride of Eastern Avenue has been a local landmark ever since the late William Henry Haussner -- a newcomer from Bavaria -- founded it 67 years ago. He married another immigrant from Germany, Frances Wilke, in 1935, and Mrs. Haussner, now 83, still drops in at the place every week.

Haussner's is always special.This venerable Baltimore restaurant is special for its longevity, its legendary art collection, its wide-ranging menu, its slightly crusty waitresses, its picture-perfect bakery case, its brimming baskets of homemade breads on every table and for its ability to bring patrons -- locals and out-of-towners -- back and back and back.Haussner's is virtually unforgettable. Tourists, I would wager, remember it long after they've left the Inner Harbor. And for area residents, it remains essential Baltimore: comfortable, consistent, friendly -- a nice restaurant, but certainly not pretentious or intimate.

HAUSSNER'S restaurant, the Southeast Baltimore landmark that closed last year with a great crescendo of civic sadness and an eye-popping art auction, could be busy again soon - but don't expect to have lunch there. Maryland Community Kitchen, which prepares and delivers thousands of free hot meals to homebound low-income Marylanders with HIV or AIDS, might soon move its operation into the vacant Highlandtown restaurant. The agency won't serve meals on site but will package and deliver them from there.

Lois Barnes of Joppa requested a recipe for the house dressing served at Haussner's restaurant, which has closed. "Hope someone who knows that recipe will respond," she wrote. Joyce Corriggio of Aberdeen responded. "Throughout my childhood, we dined at Haussner's restaurant every Saturday evening after a day of shopping ... on Howard St. In the early days, Haussner's served a small complimentary salad of mixed vegetables and hominy marinated in their vinegar dressing. Of course, the same dressing went over cucumber salad.

Walter Gilliam's streak began in 1952, eight years before Cal Ripken was born. He hadn't missed a day of work at Haussner's Restaurant until last month, when his glaucoma became such a problem that his doctor ordered him to stay home.Mr. Gilliam, 74, works one day a week now, after years of working five and six days a week in the Haussner's kitchen. He started there when he was 15, at the sandwich counter, and worked his way up to chef. During his 43-year stretch without a day off, Mr. Gilliam once went 12 years between vacations.

For what reason is Highlandtown now called Canton? I live in Harford County now but grew up in Highlandtown near Haussner's restaurant and Eastern Avenue. I went to school at Sacred Heart of Jesus in Highlandtown. Highlandtown was in the higher elevation in Baltimore with boundaries that included Hudson Street and Fait Street up to Dean Street and the underpass next to Greektown and from Pratt and Baltimore Streets to Patterson Park Avenue and around the park. Canton was always further south down to Boston Street and the water.

(1926-1999) Haussner's was certainly admired for its cuisine, which combined traditional German specialties like Wiener schnitzel a la Holstein with Mid-Atlantic fare such as crab cakes and terrapin stew. And people still dream about the dessert selection, especially the strawberry pie. But Haussner's was loved for being Haussner's, a one-of-a-kind dining destination, every inch of it decorated with works of art collected by William Henry Haussner's wife, Frances Wilke Haussner.

When a friend told Brad Siegler and Kim Murray that a brewery in Baltimore was throwing a party for the public Saturday afternoon, distance was not a factor for the Columbia couple. "It sounded fun," Murray said at the Peabody Heights Brewery in Abell, where beers like Red Cent Amber and Knuckle-Buster IPA flowed freely, as a rock band played and a mobile food truck sold chicken and waffles. The party was also a coming-out party for the six-month-old brewery and its partners, Stephen Demczuk, J. Hollis Albert and Patrick Beille.
