For someone with a resume that includes work in the kitchens of the now-closed Pavilion at the Walters, the Polo Grill, Linwood's Due and Rothwells, chef Mark Hofmann's newest venture is something of a surprise. People who have followed Hofmann's career know that his specialty is casual food with a decidedly upscale accent. But when he opened his own restaurant, he settled on a neighborly place where he probably sells more hamburgers than grilled tuna nicoise. Henry's Bistro (named after Hofmann's son)

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.

Every once in awhile a restaurant opens up with such promise it makes a food critic's heart sing.The new Rothwells is one of those.Promise isn't perfection, so there are things to carp about -- a dinner served at room temperature here, a waiter undereducated in the food there. But when Rothwells is good, it's very, very good.The loyal customers who followed Mark Hofmann when he left Due to open Rothwells must have been surprised at his new place. Due, sister restaurant to Linwood's, is known for its rustic chic and its casual but upscale northern Italian menu.

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue.The new Pavilion restaurant at the Walters Art Gallery has taken all of these traditional June elements, added some marvelous food, and created a dining space that you will want to patronize until death do you part.The "something old" is the spacious proportions and classical detailing of the dining room, built into what was once the back garden of the Hackerman House, now the Walters' gallery of Asian art. The "something new" is the clean white airiness of the space, and the touches of Industrial Age design in the metal trim.

Make it two for Linwood and Ellen Dame.Last week, the Owings Mills restaurateurs opened their long-awaited second spot -- Linwood's/Due (pronounced Doo-A) -- a Northern Italian trattoria next door to their Cafe-Grille. Although it's more casual than the original, Due, 25 Crossroads Drive, does have a similar open kitchen that allows diners to peek in as executive chef Mark Hofmann (formerly of the Pavilion) prepares Tuscan-style osso buco with garlic mashed potatoes or saffron risotto with grilled vegetables.

Mark Hofmann has taken over the now-closed Phoenix Grille at 3493 Sweet Air Road in Jacksonville and plans to open Henry's Bistro there. The former chef of Due and Rothwells is hoping to open his new restaurant by Valentine's Day, after completely renovating the space with the help of his father, an architect, and his brother, a landscape designer. Hofmann spent part of last summer in Europe, scouting out French bistros. His menu will include classic dishes like steak frites and braised lamb shank with good soups and salads.

New Rothwells comes with a solid backgroundMark Hofmann's credentials are impressive: executive chef at Due, a stint at the Pavilion at the Walters, sous chef at the Polo Grill and at Linwood's.

Padonia Road, where Palermo's Grill used to be.Hofmann describes his new restaurant, which opened last week, as "upscale casual." It specializes in regional American cuisine, with pizzas, meats and seafood from a wood-burning grill.
