Three Ellicott City Businesses are Rescued by Gordon Ramsay

In a special episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back titled “Save Our Town,” Ramsay and the crew renovate three separate businesses in Ellicott City, Maryland, a town that was hit by massive floods in 2016 and 2017.

Guest Stars during the episode include interior designer Nate Berkus, former Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame baseball player Cal Ripken Jr., former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith and the Maryland National Guard.

During the preview for the episode, Ramsay says, “I’m going to save an entire town,” and the National Guard is seen helping out.

The two-hour episode of 24 Hours to Hell and Back: Save Our Town, which promises to be Ramsay’s “biggest rescue yet,” airs on FOX on Tuesday, May 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.


The Phoenix Upper Main Brewpub Was Renovated

What is now called the Phoenix Upper Main Brewpub previously consisted of two separate businesses, the Phoenix Emporium and the Ellicott Mills Brewing Company. During the renovation, the businesses were merged and renovated.

Reviews for The Phoenix Upper Main are positive overall with a 4.4-star rating out of a total of 630 reviews on Google. Recent reviews mention the nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

“Charm of Old Ellicott City. Great place to have simple drinks and socialize. Reasonable price for dishes..and good service. Makes me want to come back,” one reviewer wrote.

The menu for the Phoenix Upper Main includes crab soup, crab dip, fish & chips, chicken tenders, roasted toasted crab dip sandwich, and deserts like Snicker’s Caramel peanut butter pie, key lime pie and flourless chocolate cake.

Phoenix Upper Main is currently open for carryout on Tuesdays through Saturdays with a special to-go menu, and beer and wine are also available for pickup.

Jaxon Edwin Social House Was Also Rescued by Ramsay

Jaxon Edwin is a barbershop, coffee bar and game room that received renovations and updates by Ramsay and the team. Jeff Braswell, the owner of the business, said that though the coronavirus pandemic has affected his life in the past few months, he has always planned to watch the episode with his family and is glad he can still do that.

“You want to be around the people you love,” he told the Baltimore Sun. “It’s going to be an emotional episode, but it’s going to be exciting for the town.”

Jaxon Edwin is currently open, offering haircuts for essential workers. They require the customers to make an appointment online, wear a face mask, and document that they are essential workers. They are also offering small plates and cocktails for carryout on Sundays from 3 to 8 p.m.

  • Frank Rondeau created an Excellent Customer Service Experience!

    On paper the clients and my requirements were not a match.  Frank’s ability to create a match by identifying unrealized commonalities was remarkable.  I recommend working with Frank as a value proposition for all parties.

    Thank you,

  • Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!

    After the year of 2020, like so many others, the job that I worked so hard for had come to a halt. I had been looking for a similar job since to no avail. I am very glad I contacted Patrice & Associates for help.  Eric Coultoff really wanted to help find the right job for me. He even helped improve my resume.  He was in constant contact letting me know the process of it all and gave me multiple updates.  Within a week I received an interview and Eric helped me prepare for it.  I am now employed due to that interview and I thank Patrice & Associates, specifically!     Thank you, Michael Fossaceca Thank you Eric Coultoff very much for helping land me a great job!
  • Mr. Piroozmand really cares and took the time to coach me through the process. 

    Hamoon Piroozmand is hands down the best recruiter that I have ever worked with thus far in my career.  Hamoon did a really great job of making sure that the fit was right between the company I got hired with and myself by getting to know me and what I wanted out of the next company.  His passion for his work really shined when I was going through the interview process.  Hamoon was always responsive as well.  I was also interviewing with other companies at the time, outside of the recruiting that Hamoon did, and applied the techniques that I had discussed with Hamoon, I got final offers on all interviews.  I took the offer that Hamoon presented me with, even though the other concepts paid more because I trust the fit.  Overall, Hamoon will ask you to do things that other recruiters will ask you to do, but there was accountability and follow up throughout the whole process and if you're serious about getting the job, follow his plan.  It works!
    Sincerely,
    Kristin Barrett
