Our friend the Charm City Cook, Amy Langrehr, let us know today that a new casual French restaurant, Le Garage Beer Bar & Frites, will open this spring in the space formerly occupied by The Dogwood Restaurant on The Avenue in Hampden. 

The restaurant’s chef, Sarah Acconcia, comes with experience from 13.5 % Wine Bar in Hampden and Maggie’s Farm in Lauraville.  Local architect SMG will rework the space to include a 60-seat dining area, an 18-seat bar, and a french fry stand that will be available at street level, in the restaurant’s store-front space.

“What we’re trying to do with the space is to make it warm, approachable and cozy,” Acconcia told The Baltimore Sun.
