Jason Ambrose, the co-owner and founding chef of Salt , has agreed to purchase a tavern on Haubert Street in Locust Point. "It won't be anything restaurant-y like Salt," Ambrose said. "It will be a 'bar with food.' " There isn't enough room inside the small establishment for tables, he said After seven years running the kitchen at Salt, Ambrose turned over day-to-day kitchen operations to Brian Lavin . Ambrose won't close on the property until early November, he said, and the liquor board must approve the transfer of the liquor license to Ambrose from the property's current owners, Inga and Adam Gardner, who operate a bar at the location named The House . Ambrose said he hopes to have the Locust Point bar open in early 2014.

This week's episode was not short on drama. And I don't know about you, but I was still traumatized by last week's stripper scene. Apparently when Phaedra feels bad about something she shows up with peace offer. Just like she brought Kim gifts, she stopped past Kandi's boutique with a cake. Such a Southern lady. They have a few laughs about the stripper's talent and perhaps he should be in Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum. Kandi makes light of the situation by asking Phaedra what she would do if she could please herself.

First, there was the hip, oh-so-clubby atmosphere of Club Ten Ultra Lounge: groupings of cushy sofas around sleek coffee tables, dramatic lighting, and the throb of the club music. There were the oh-so-chic guests, clustered around the glowing glass bar, sipping champagne and martinis. And then there were the clothes. Outfits included baby Ts atop skinny jeans tucked into high boots, filmy tunics floating over rhinestone-embellished pants, bohemian layered skirts, low low cut dresses, and lots of tops with cutout backs.
