After last winter's devastating fire in Mount Vernon that shut down several businesses - and could have claimed the Helmand and Thairish restaurants had it gotten even worse - one of the hard-hit restaurants is planning to reopen next week. Baltimore Magazine reports this in a recent Twitter posting, and on CityPeek. The new location will be right across the street from the old location. Best wishes to Ann and Tony Chennamoor. I'll be back soon!
