The Chameleon is changing. Jeff Smith has sold his restaurant, a major player in Baltimore's farm-to-table movement, to executive chef, Andrew Weinzirl. The restaurant will now be known as Maggie's Farm; new signage should be appearing any day now at the Lauraville restaurant. The news is not a complete surprise. Weinzirl, formerly of the Wine Market in Locust Point, took over the Chameleon kitchen from Smith back in the spring, and the transition to Maggie's Farm began shortly after.

Joe Flacco's Hail Mary pass in Saturday's division game may have saved the Ravens' season, but it appears to have emptied the tables in Baltimore restaurants. Baltimore bars did clean-up business on Saturday, but restaurants lost customers, as patrons called in to cancel reservations, according to anecdotal conversations with local restaurant owners. Blame it on bad timing. The division game began at 4:30 p.m., which was perfect, in theory, for planning a Saturday night restaurant dinner -- if the game had ended in regulation.
