Fells Point resident and architect Bryce Turner wanted a way to give back to his local Baltimore community amid the coronvirus pandemic.

As restaurants begin to resume outdoor dining after months of being closed to the public, Turner saw an opportunity to help convert parking spaces into dining areas for Fells Point restaurants.

“We certainly want to help wherever we can … We have a little extra time right now, so we’ve been able to do it and we’re really pleased to do it. I live in Fells Point, so it’s a little bit about trying to think globally and act locally,” said Turner, who is the president of BCT Design Group.

Baltimore Sun reviewer Christina Tkacik thought the crab cakes at The Choptank were bland, the french fries were “cardboard-stiff,” the calamari had too much Old Bay (if there is such a thing) and the atmosphere was stuffy.

Fells Point’s Peter’s Inn is back and as lovable as ever

A few years ago, I interviewed Karin Tiffany, the co-owner of Peter’s Inn, for a feature on restaurant personalities, and we got to talking about what’s important to her as a restaurateur.

She said she never takes her customers for granted, that she and her husband/business partner, Bud Tiffany, recognize that going out to eat is expensive and they take it seriously that people are willing to spend their money on their food, at their restaurant.

“Some things on my menu might cost what people make in an hour. That’s your hard-earned money. It’s a big responsibility.”

That stuck with me, and I thought of it again last year, just after Christmas, when the Fells Point restaurant caught fire. The damage was severe enough that Peter’s Inn, which had at that point been open for over 20 years, was forced to close for nine months to make all the necessary repairs.
