Best Bar for Nonsmokers

Helen’s Garden

2908 O’Donnell St., (410) 276-2233,

Posted 9/21/2005

Peacefully coexisting with the rabble in the heart of Canton’s O’Donnell Square is the popular and placid Helen’s Garden, sporting a cool yet comfy-cozy décor, an eclectic and tasty vegetarian-friendly American menu with different specials all the time, a nicely priced wine list, a serene little bar, and there’s no smoking.

There’s no need for special legislation; bar and restaurant owners are capable of independent thought and decision-making, and if there are other establishments you patronize elsewhere in this city that make you cough and come home with smelly clothes, say something about it to the management and use this place as a case study—they aren’t hurting for business.
