Alewife Baltimore Opens Thursday, Sept. 16th--UPDATED
Owner Daniel Lanigan has reported that Alewife Baltimore, the new beer bar restaurant at 21 North Eutaw St. (the former Lucy's/Maggie Moore's, originally the Eutaw Savings Bank Building, built 1857) will open to the public at 4 PM on Thursday, September 16th. There will be two days of "soft" opening tests by invitation, typical for new restaurants.
Baltimore Beer Week in mind. The beers will be available in sample 5-ounce glasses and full servings, but don't get ambitious--Lanigan said that if anyone attempts to order all forty in one sitting, "We won't let 'em. Forty five-ounce samples, that's over 12 pints in three hours." (Not to mention the expense...)
Lanigan described the restaurant's planned cuisine as "New American, or as I call it, New Viking." We'll just have to come on by next week to find out just what that's all about, won't we?
