Brian Bruso's opened his cozy Canton restaurant, named for a Robert Frost poem, in 2000. The restaurant, which introduced the wonders of the wood-fired grill to many Baltimore diners, will close up  sometime in the last week of September, according to Bruso.

"We're moving on to new adventures," Bruso said, who told me he'll be doing some catering even after he relocates to New England.
