Update on the Brass Elephant
I just spoke to Randy Stahl, the Brass Elephant owner who's been at Remomo in Arundel Mills Mall since 2005. He says that he and his partner, Jack Elsby, now at the Milton Inn in Sparks, would like to sell the building and lease the restaurant space back.
The Brass Elephant could then use the capital, he said, to make much-needed improvements like putting in an elevator and a first-floor bathroom. In an ideal world, the partners would hold on to the business and its liquor license until the economy improves.
I asked him if more than the building was for sale -- specifically the restaurant, the catering business, and the liquor license.
"For the right price," Stahl said almost reluctantly, "they're available."
