The restaurant closed last December and owners had been looking for new partners.
It's official: the New Orleans Kitchen and French Market is gone. Owners said the eatery, which enjoyed a short but popular run in its spot on Telegraph Road in Severn, will not re-open. The restaurant had stopped operating last December but owners had indicated they were seeking new financial partners. The New Orleans Kitchen only opened in May of last year with New Orleans native Rusty Evers manning the kitchen along with several family members. It became well-known in the area for its po' boy sandwiches, gumbo and beans and rice.

Sisters Gina Wortz and Sharlee Fleshman have combined their love of pets with their love of Italy in forming the online store "Dog Italia."
Gina Wortz and Sharlee Fleshman are of Italian descent. They come from a long line of entrepreneurs. And they both love animals. So it was a natural fit when the sisters decided to go into business together, launching an online store featuring pet-related products with an Italian theme. Dog Italia offers a series of healthy and organic treats for dogs and cats. There's a peanut butter canoli for dogs, for example and tiny biscottis. (A biscotti for your scottie, perhaps?) And the pair sell a host of other products designed to spoil pets and their owners. They are the real deal. Their maiden name is Castricone, and they proudly descend tout their ancestral roots from the Abruzzo region of Italy. "We just wanted to go back to our Italian …

Hundreds of baby chicks arrived in Gambrills on Friday, ready for customers looking to raise fresh eggs in their own backyards. More than 300 chicks are now on sale at the Gambrills General Store.
