Steven Rivelis found himself in an odd position the other day. He was sitting outside The Elephant, the restaurant he co-owns at 924 N. Charles St., having a drink when a woman approached him to offer her condolences for their closure.

When he informed her The Elephant is actually still very much open, pointing to an “OPEN” sign on the door nearby and diners inside, she said he was wrong. She had read the coverage of the Mount Vernon eatery’s impending demise and was certain they had shut down, despite what he was telling her. (“There are people eating dinner in the window, you can see that,” he says he protested.)
