Uspscale Eclectic Italian Restaurant/Ultra lounge

A little modesty goes a long way ...

face paced....hah

It's located at Eastern and Exeter streets in Little Italy, where Petalo's once was. On the corner near La Scala.

Thanks. EL

I hope their face pace exceeds expectations of the United States Postal service, where the lines really are cold.

Yeah, I love how they say hot AND cold line cooks, how many cooks apply to work the salad station? Yes, I'm a cold line cook, no hot food or pastries, just salads....and the occasional sandwich.

Uh, I hear they are hiring at Panera...

Can't say I've ever had sushi at an Italian place, even if it is uspscale!

Thank heaven an upscale Italian ultralounge is finally opening in Baltimore so I know where to go when I'm in the mood for sushi.

Zevonista, you beat me to the punch. I'll have to console myself at Ra with a hearty bowl of linguine putanesca.

Zevonista, I saw it last week advertised (never went in) at one of those mall type restaurants near Ft Myers Fl. It seemed to be just as pseudo Italian as it was pseudo sushi.

I also was just shaking my head at it.

I find it hard to comment on pseudo sushi (or Italian for that matter) when the vast majority of us probably have never had the authentic kind.

My favorite restaurant related Craigslist ad is this one: http://baltimore.craigslist.org/mis/1339128291.html

I've heard from liquor rep's that the management/ownership is an inexperienced group from DC, that they intend to turn it into a lounge/live dj venue late-night and that it will basically try to compete with Mo's.

Anonymous-

The residents of Little Italy are watching this carefully. We are working with all local restaurants to keep Little Italy a family dinner-oriented area with family dinner-appropriate entertainment. We are also working with city officials to prevent any restuarant from becoming a late night/DJ/dance venue. And..do yourself a favor..don't get any one of started on Mos. I've personally had Mo's patrons pissing on my sidewalk, so you can imagine what I think.

I look forward to seeing this high-concept, face paste team. Joking aside, there has been some construction and other visible improvements going on outside. At least it isn't rotting like the place on Pratt next to the Dodge Garage, right?

I am a resident in Harbor East that spoke to a large restuarant vendor. The vendor mentioned that the restuarant is beautiful on the inside and the patrons will love what the owners have done to the space. I heard that their menu will be one of the best in the town. Lets see????

This just sounds like a better fit for Power Plant Live. Or Towson.

sounds too hip for me, already.

JP - that ad is a riot! I really have to find time to look at craigs list!

I love it!!!! just what baltimore needs, somthing different tired of the same ole thing.

I moved here from Italy six months ago and Im really excited about having Itaian sushi again!

What's the difference between a lounge and an ultralounge? Shinier things?

Hey Fellow Bloggers!
I’m a Baltimore City resident and restaurant enthusiast.
Your posts gave me a good laugh, but also reminded me of the critics of XS Breakfast and Sushi Café.
Everybody said, “breakfast and sushi???” and now XS is one of the most popular places to eat in the City!
I’m excited to see what this new “Restaurant and Ultra lounge” brings to one of my favorite parts of the City – Little Italy!

Corey,
My guess would be that the ultralounge has higher prices than a regular old lounge has.

Judging by all the exclamation marks in the comments, there appears to be a lot of excitement about this place!!!

So many user names, so few IP addresses. EL

Just what the city needs..something new and refreshing..little Italy is just a little boring

The city and little Italy needs something fun and different. Looking forward to checking out a new restaurant that isn't a chain is isn't afraid to try something new. I've heard the menu is supposed to be awesome. Can't wait to try it out!

"I've heard from liquor rep's that the management/ownership is an inexperienced group from DC."

Maybe they can hire the management team from Phat Pug...

I'm pretty sure that any place touting itself as upscale isn't.

At the Little Italy Community Organization meeting last night, the owner described the dining area as having more of a Pazo feel, and he is specifically NOT looking for a live entertainment license. The "ultralounge" section will be downstairs (the old Lucky's, for those of you familiar) as a coffee/wine bar that he is describing as mellow and candle-lit, although it will be open later than the main restaurant. Best of all (IMO), he's keeping the big porch for outdoor seating.

LI needs something different? Because a neighborhood made up of Italian families and Italian restaurants are too ordinary or something? How about some really trendy Ethiopian places there? Or a very hip martini bar/sushi joint - now that's really different!

I stopped by this morning to meet the owner very nice guy! He even kindly gave me a tour of the entire building!! I've never seen anything like that before!!!! The place is amazing ,the way things look this could the hottest place in Baltimore!!!!!!

I'm sorry, but posts that contain extraneous exclamation points!!!!!!!! and superlatives like "hottest place in Baltimore"--**before** the place has even opened--just come across as shills.

I dont know guys????? The owner showed me the inside of the mop closet and I think it's DEFINITELY most possibly the hottest mop closet in Baltimore!!!!?!?!?!?!!!

Laughing about the mop closet - but meant to ask, did anybody else hear that the Tremont won an award for 1st runner up America's best bathroom?

I was going to put this under the bathroom post but I can't find it now!

Italian "sushi", better known as crudo, has been around for ages and is simply the freshest seafood usually garnished with high grade olive oil, citrus and fresh herbs

Ha I work there and it is the best resaurant in the area.....the food is always lovely

I must have mis-heard, thought Crudo was the bouncer who operated their lovely velvet rope line.

the captcha agrees: protects her
wonder if they're contextual like google ads?
