No. 100: Woman's Industrial Kitchen
Reviving the historic lunchroom at the Woman's Industrial Exchange sounded like the kind of impossible task issued to heroines in fairy tales, like picking lentils out of the ashes. But Irene Smith, who gained an ardent local following with her Souper Freak food truck, has pulled off a happy ending. The tomato aspic and chicken salad are back.

Stone Mill Bakery will open a cafe space in Stevenson Village. Both the existing cafe at Green Spring Station in Lutherville and the wholesale bakery in Clipper Mill will remain in operation. There is no announced date for the opening.
The Lutherville cafe opened in 1998 (with the name Appetite). It emerged out of Ecole, a bakery that Stone Mill founder Billy Himmelrich used on weekend nights as a cafe serving a fixed-price menu. There were formerly Stone Mill cafes in Mount Washington and Roland Park.
