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.

Tonight, Baltimore becomes a casino town. With the opening of the $442 million Horseshoe Casino Baltimore on Russell Street, the city enters an era of legalized slots, table games and poker that seemed impossible just a dozen years ago. Back then, people were busy drawing lines - first no slots at racetracks; then maybe, but no table games; then state-regulated slots at five locations and then six, along with everything else. Voters got their say, both on the matter of expanded gambling and then the location of the state's largest casino, Maryland Live, at Arundel Mills.

A cocktail bar in South Baltimore new to the scene, Bar Liquorice recently had a soft opening. It has been tweaking its dimly lit lounge aesthetic thanks to one Jeff Cahill, previously of Helen's Garden/John Stevens LTD while co-owner Tom Looney of Gypsy Queen food truck and Helen's Garden fame has been building the food menu. With these two realms in good hands, the cocktail list should be soon to follow. And indeed, Bar Liquorice has a noteworthy cocktail program featuring the time-honored "modern twists on the classics," from New Old-Fashioneds to Manhattans and Moscow Mule variants.
