    Comings and Goings
    •The Karzai family—owners of The Helmand, Tapas Teatro, and b. Bistro—know a thing or two about running a successful restaurant. So when they announced plans to open a new place in the former location of The Chesapeake, excitement was high. We got a sneak peek at Pen & Quill (1701 North Charles St.) during Artscape, when co-owner Helmand Karzai (pictured, nephew of outgoing Afghan president Hamid Karzai) opened up a few tables inside and out to sample the goods. The limited menu included beef tongue steam bun ($8), halibut crudo ($15) , and beet salad ($9). Karzai tells us that, barring any construction setbacks, they’ll be opening the doors  the first week of August. Named after the cocktail lounge in the original Chesapeake (and, coincidentally, sharing the first initials of Helmand’s father and co-owner Qayyum and Qayyum’s wife Pat), the Station North restaurant’s kitchen is led by chef Bella Kline—previously the sous chef at The Chameleon and most recently at Chicago’s Michelin-starred Longman & Eagle. Helmand tells us to expect an “eclectically creative new American style menu,” outdoor seating not unlike Tapas Teatro, and an interior décor that takes from its art-heavy surrounding neighborhood. As Karzai emphasized, “you’re gonna know that you’re in Station North.”
