A province, a river, a son

Helmand is the name of a province in Afghanistan, and it's also the name of a river that has special meaning to Baltimore restaurateur Qayum Karzai, who visited it often as a youth. Karzai named his Mount Vernon restaurant after the Helmand River and also after his oldest son, Helmand Karzai, now 32, who operates the family's restaurants B and Tapas Teatro. The Helmand was also the name of the restaurant Karzai owned in Chicago, before he relocated to Baltimore.
