Who Says You Need To Eat In A Shopping Center? Three Big Restaurants Opening This Month

Highland Inn in snow
We ate delicious Facci pizza tonight picked up in a shopping center, so you know that I'm joking about the headline.

But check out the photo above of the Highland Inn covered with snow.  Christina snapped the photo last week in Highland.  She said they had just put the sign on the building.  Since then, they have added landscaping and exterior lighting and finished the parking lot.

That's a scenic spot with the new restaurant built into an old home.

Right now, we're waiting for three new restaurants with serious aspirations -- Brian Boston's Highland Inn on Rte 216, Cindy Wolf's Petit Louis on the Columbia lakefront, and the White Oak Tavern, well, in a shopping center on Rte 40.

Does anyone know when the restaurants will open?

In October, Boston told Richard Gorelick that they would open the Highland Inn by early December.  This month, the Foreman-Wolf folks said they'd open Petit Louis by the end of the year.  The White Oak Taven folks have said they're opening within a week.

According to their facebook, White Oak will be second week in January. Apparently they are waiting on the health inspector, who was supposed to come this weekend.

I've been walking by and noticing progress at Petit Louis. I doubt they can be ready to open by the end of this year, though work is moving quickly. I just posted a photo of the new facade here:

Had lunch at Roland Park Petit Louis today, staff said Columbia opening will be January, but would not commit to a specific date.

On their Facebook page, Bistro Blanc is advertising that they will honor any reservations made for Father's Day at the Highland Inn as the Highland Inn has permanently closed. It appears to be true...the Highland Inn's Facebook page has disappeared.
