This newly opened Phoenix restaurant is a double comeback. First, it's the return of a landmark dining destination. It's also the return of a chef. For decades, Peerce's Plantation was a landmark, family-owned Baltimore County dining destination before it closed in 2001. A short revival under new owners didn't take, and Peerce's faded into memory, along with dozens of other bygone favorites. Then, a stirring. In 2008, Joe Bivona purchased the property as a venue for his Signature Catering company.

Leave it to Irene Hofmann to stand out in a crowd, even the lunchtime crowd at Roland Park's Petit Louis Bistro. The Contemporary Museum's executive director has her own distinct style, drawing from the mid-20th century. Her love of that period also led her to buy a house from that era in Greenspring Valley, where the 39-year-old continues making style statements. Self-described style:: "Diane von Furstenberg meets Bettie Page" The look: : Black ribbed cotton/modal Michael Stars turtleneck.

The setting sun peeks through the large bay windows in the living room of Irene Hofmann's home in Owings Mills. Strewn across the black dining room table are tiny booklets of literature, or lifestyle tracts: a sort of collection of miniature place mats and the food for thought they provide. The brief words on the small folder paper are often satiric in nature, a twist on the Christian tracts that inspired them. Hofmann, the executive director of the Contemporary Museum, sorts through them with artists Lisa Anne Auerbach, who conceived the collection, and Fritz Haeg.
