You know that large vacancy next to Tapas Teatro and across from the Metro Gallery in Station North? After 25 years of dormancy, the location will reopen as the Chesapeake Restaurant in March.
But it won’t be quite the same. The new Chesapeake will be a farm-to-table affair and will share the space with a brewpub and a market cafe.
With the combined presence of Depot, Yellow Sign Theatre, Club Charles, Metro Gallery, and the Charles Theater, the 1700 block of N Charles St is a full-on cultural hotspot. And it could use another dining option — no offense to Sofi’s Crepes or Club Charles or Tapas Teatro (or the concessions at the Charles Theater) — but I wonder if this is it. “Farm-to-table” sounds rather expensive to me. And despite the Chesapeake’s co-owner assuring the Baltimore Business Journal that the new restaurant would be “accessible,” I have my doubts.
Let’s hope they at least keep the nostalgic “Chessie” decor.
