Creme  will reopen soon with a new look and a new name.  Ezra Tilaye, who owns the Mount Vernon restaurant with his mother, Tegist Ayalew, said that the new concept will be called Ware House 518, a nod to one of the many businesses that have been housed at 518 N. Charles St. over more than a century. Baltimore diners know this address for Louie's Bookstore Cafe and Ixia, the two restaurants that occupied the building's ground-floor space before Ayalew and Tilaye opened Creme, a version of their popular restaurant on U Street in Washington, back in 2010.

Boutique investment firm Hardesty Capital Management moved this month from its longtime home in Mount Vernon to a new office in Hunt Valley, which it said offers more modern conveniences and room to grow, while being closer to its customer base of wealthy Maryland families. The firm has looked to add clients, even as the rising stock market has helped drive its assets under management to more than $900 million, a record for the business. President Chad Meyer, who was hired as chief marketing officer last year, said the 14-person firm is looking to hire more people on the investment side to handle the increased funds, as well as staff that would help bring in business from other parts of Maryland and southern Pennsylvania.

If an English country squire or a wealthy industrialist of the Gilded Age were to have an in-town home, 106 E. Chase St. would fit the bill to a tee. Built in the 1880s, the detached, three-story Romanesque-style home fits well among the other elegant residences in Mount Vernon. "This house is one-of-a-kind and irreplaceable," said listing agent Julie Canard of Long & Foster Real Estate. "There is no way you could duplicate this, for millions of dollars. " The home's original owner, George Jenkins, was enamored of the skill and craftsmanship of builders who emigrated from Europe.
