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.

Mango Grove will open its new Columbia location on Stanford Road on Valentine's Day.
The news of the opening was posted late, late Sunday night on the restaurant’s Facebook page. The keeper of the How Chow blog, who has been assiduously following the journey of Mango Grove to its new location, posted the news early Monday morning. Mango Grove is calling this a soft-opening, with a limited menu.
A vegetarian mainstay in Columbia known best for its dhosa, a kind of Indian crepe, Mango Grove closed its original location in August 2011 after 15 years to make way for new development.
It's a good day all around to visit How Chow. On Monday, the site launched a ten-part Welcome to Howard County, full of good eating information for new and old Howard County residents and for residents of neighboring counties, too.
