Luckie's Tavern is coming

Elizabeth Large beat me to the punch by a matter of hours. Here's a link to her insightful, informative post.

Luckie's is coming to the space formerly occupied by the Lodge Bar in Power Plant Live.

Opening day is Sept. 19.

Just to set the record straight about VIN & Luckies. The Chef from VIN was fired in the same fashion that Cordish loves to fire people that have put their heart and soul into "their" places. The person that will be working at Luckies is the Sous Chef... Not the man that had $20000 of his own money invested in VIN.

The Cordish's of this world will never change. Just look at the Power Plant do they have one tenant left that isnt a Cordish entity. We all know the reason for that.............

I keep telling you, Sam. You're in dyer need of doing an investigative piece on the Corrdish operations.

Sounds like ddabusiness agrees.

Expose, Sessa.

think about, i think I am not sure they have to give a percentage of thier profits to the city in exchange for that sweetheart deal they got. its kind of funny when it is time to look at thier books all of sudden it just thier books to look at no other vendors. Nothing to compare to ...I hate to sound suspicious but it does seem kind of funny

While it is sad to see an actual fine dining restaurant leave Towson; let's be real -- VIN was never going to survive with the horrible wait staff and pricing for the area. While the menu was creative and Chef Patternote an up and coming food player (perhaps his timing wasn't right??) -- VIN was not the type of place people serious about food were going to enjoy (again, terrible wait staff always an issue) and therefore, the pricing was always going to become an issue -- especially because the quality of food seemed to go down over the past year. Perhpas a bar atmosephere will be better suited to talents and tastes
