, it seemed like things were quickly sliding down the toilet for Baltimore's restaurant industry just in time for Restaurant Week. Well, fear not, Brass Elephant isn't going anywhere. I just spoke to general manager Khalief Mack and he assured me the restaurant is still in business. The confusion comes from the fact that its building is for sale. After 26 years, the Brass Elephant wants to spruce things up a bit, and it needs money to do that; hence trying to sell the building and then lease it from the buyer.
