Call it Langermann's Junior. The same team behind Langermann's in Canton - chef Neal Langermann and partners David McGill and Mark Lasker - have opened a new restaurant in South Baltimore. The location, 1542 Light St., was recently the home to 1542 Gastropub and before that, the Reserve. Langermann's on Light, as it's known, was open on Monday for bar service. Dining service was to begin on Tuesday. What's on the menu at Langermann's on Light? Pretty much the same fare, we've been told, as at the original Langermann's: Southern-inspired cuisines like Charleston shrimp and grits, maple smokehouse-rubbed Duroc pork chops, Cape Fear scallops and Miss Ellie's fried green tomatoes.

Peter Bowe and his wife, Barbara Stewart, chose their waterfront townhome for its location. An end unit at the tip of a pier in the HarborView complex, the home soars next to Baltimore's harbor, affording spectacular views, a stellar seat for Pier Six concerts and a quick, five-minute commute to Bowe's job as president of Ellicott Dredges in South Baltimore. “I describe it by saying you can fish out of every room in the house except the kitchen,” quips Bowe. “You look out the window every day, and you're connected to the city and the water,” Stewart continues, “but it's remarkably quiet.” Bowe, 58, and Stewart, 51, a retired executive at JP Morgan, share a life goal of spending more time with friends and family, and this house, which they purchased a year ago, is an idyllic spot.

A South Baltimore man filed a lawsuit Monday against a city police officer, accusing the officer of punching him repeatedly during a June arrest — an incident that was captured on video. Kollin Truss and Officer Vincent E. Cosom argued a few moments before the arrest, but a woman with Truss had separated the pair, and Truss was apparently walking away from police when they decided to make an arrest. "This attack was completely unprovoked and served no legitimate law enforcement purpose," Truss' attorneys, Ivan J. Bates and Tony N. Garcia, wrote in a complaint filed in Baltimore Circuit Court.

For a third day running, several hundred residents in South Baltimore were without power Wednesday, as Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. crews continued working to address heat-related failures to the city's power grid. Issues first began to arise in Canton, Upper Fells Point and other neighborhoods around Patterson Park on Monday afternoon, during a sweltering start to the work week, and have continued - on and off - since, residents and BGE officials have said. As of Wednesday afternoon, some residents had spent more than two dozen hours without air conditioning, as temperatures have reached into the 90s. About 7 a.m. Wednesday, a failure occurred on an underground cable after a high energy demand coupled with the heat to overwhelm it, said Rachael Lighty, a BGE spokeswoman.

Poverni Sheikh Group and Meisel Capital Partners are planning 26, mostly one bedroom apartments, as well as 12,000 square feet of retail in the 1 East Lexington Street property, and two adjacent parcels on Lexington and N.
