The Grille at Maple Lawn has opened in the space that was formerly Venegas Prime Filet. Venegas closed in June, leaving a vacancy in the anchor position at Maple Lawn, a 600-acre mixed-use, planned community in southern Howard County. The Grille is the first of two major openings at Maple Lawn. Coming in February is the Polo Club, an Indian restaurant from the operators of Baltimore's Ambassador Dining Room. While the Grille is occupying a pre-existing building, the Polo Club will operate in a new building, currently under construction.

The days are getting shorter, and we're all struggling to settle back into our fall routines. Just when we needed it, there's Ananda, the thoroughly disarming, even magical, new Indian restaurant in the faraway kingdom of Maple Lawn in Howard County. You'll get up from your meal at Ananda, maybe a bit reluctantly - really, it's so cozy and comfortable here, you might want to linger - feeling refreshed, pleasantly full and extremely satisfied. I say pleasantly full because American diners can feel weighed down by Indian food.

Ananda, a new Indian restaurant from Binda and Kehar Singh, the brothers who own the  Ambassador Dining Room  in Tuscany-Canterbury, is now open in Howard County's Maple Lawn community.   Ananda, which serves a menu similar to the Ambassador, is in a quiet-opening, or soft-opening, phase -- the low-key method some restaurants use as they work out kinks and train the staff. The official opening will be in a few weeks, Binda Singh said. Ananda is open daily from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Ananda is at  7421 Maple Lawn Blvd.

It's almost as if Tim and Emily Higgins willed Maple Lawn into existence. A planned development of homes and businesses on 600 acres in southwestern Howard County, the neighborhood had yet to be advertised when the couple went in search of it more than four years ago. At the time, they both worked in Gaithersburg near a similar mixed-use project called Kentlands. They admired its emphasis on neighborliness, with tightly packed houses built within easy walking distance of recreation, restaurants, shops and offices.

Officials said the county executive worked with the Howard County Economic Development Authority to present options and expressed his desire to keep the firm in county. "Ken Ulman truly stepped forward," Levy-Yurista said.

Owners of Looney's Pub in Maple Lawn were fined $5,000 by Howard County's liquor board for a series of infractions during the first few months after the establishment opened in spring 2009. The fine was imposed Monday by the County Council, sitting as the liquor board. The council members normally hear only unusual or serious liquor cases, leaving the majority to an appointed Alcoholic Beverage Hearing Board. Looney's problems began opening day, March 14, 2009, when two county police officers saw children playing the bar's electronic games.

Some restaurants have, apart from everything else, a likable quality. Diners pull for it and want it do well. On a recent Saturday night, the Grille at Maple Lawn was full, early-evening diners were smiling and there was the hum of general contentment in the air. All of the basic ingredients are in place. There's a warm, energetic atmosphere, a hospitable staff, and an appealing, accessible menu that easily mixes American and Mediterranean dishes - "Ameriterranean cuisine and beyond," is how the Grille puts it. You can get a filet mignon, if you like, or paella, a house specialty.

For 10 years Sandy Thomas had been running a 2-mile circuit most mornings around her North Laurel neighborhood of Hammond Village to stay physically fit, but in 2006 life handed her a detour. Her husband, Jim, died that year from skin cancer, and the ranch-style home where they had lived for nearly 40 years and raised five kids suddenly seemed too big. So she sold the house in 2007 to her son, Mark Thomas, and moved to Hanover, Pa. Sandy Thomas, who is fit and youthful at 71, continues to run in her new community.

For an agricultural operation that is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, Maple Lawn Turkey Farm is adept at blending the old and the new. Tried-and-true methods still prevail at Maple Lawn. But the Fulton farm also embraces modern concepts, such as raising free-range birds and using large arrays of solar panels to generate enough electricity to offset what it consumes each year. And just in time for Thanksgiving, the turkey farm's success story will unfold on the airwaves Tuesday in the debut of a new half-hour TV series featuring farms across the state.

These days, Maple Lawn is more than the turkey farm in southern Howard County owned by the Iager family for more than a century. The mixed-use planned community of homes, offices, businesses and stores is about 20 percent finished and is expected to be completed over the next decade or so. The community of about 700 acres lies in Fulton, a rural area about midway between Baltimore and Washington. The design, with residences close to the street and sidewalks everywhere, is geared toward fostering over-the-fence neighborliness and pedestrian traffic.

After months of waiting, members of Voters for Common Sense Growth, an organization opposed to the proposed rezoning of 91 acres in Maple Lawn to high-density residential, presented their case to the Howard County Council at a hearing earlier this week. "They are passionate and organized, and certainly have given us something to look at," said Council Chair Jen Terrasa following more than 90 minutes of testimony on June 17. The hearing was one of four the County Council scheduled on comprehensive zoning, a once in a decade process that allows land owners and the Department of Planning and Zoning an expedited avenue for zoning changes.
