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.

The Oregon Grille
is turning 15 this fall and the Hunt Valley restaurant is celebrating with a dining promotion.
Diners who spend $50 at the Oregon Grille can receive a complimentary bottle of cabernet or chardonnay. Or they can spend $50 and get their next $15 free. Coupons for the offer are on the restaurant's website
and Facebook page
. One coupon per table, of course. The offer continues through Nov. 9.
The Oregon Grille opened its doors in a renovated 19th-century stone farmhouse in 1997. Known for its prime dry-aged steaks, large lobster and seafood, and award-winning wine, the restaurant features five fixed-price menus, including lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch, bar/light fare, party and wine menus.
And, in case you were wondering, the Oregon Grille's website advises, "In the tradition of fine dining, we require gentlemen to wear jackets after 5 p.m. in the dining room. Lunch is casual."
