The Rowhouse Grille is coming along

rowhouse grill

Or at least I think that's what it's going to be called.

I'm talking about the new bar and restaurant that's replacing the Light Street Station (1400 Light St.).

You all know how I loved the Light Street Station.

I do like the name Rowhouse Grill, and I hope I'm correct here.

I Googled the name "Rowhouse Grill" and didn't come up with it, which means the name is an original idea. Those are hard to come by these days.

I thought I had one once, but I found out that somebody else had thought of it first ...

My next question is, what will they serve at the Rowhouse Grill? Barbecue, I assume. But you know what they say about people who assume things.

I think having a bar/restaurant here will help connect the Cross Street area to Fort Avenue. Right now, there is a pub-less gap between Don't Know Tavern and Muggsy's Mug House on Light Street, if I correctly recall. The Rowhouse Grill would help plug that gap.

It will also connect even further when Charlotte's reopens and don't forget the Rub at the very end.

This is a great thing to see in South Baltimore.

There is a liquor store in between Don't Know and Muggsy in case you can't make it the TWO BLOCKS without a beer!

You might be on to something here. A "plug the gap" campaign encouraging a bar to be placed on every block in south Baltimore so that there isn't any two block dry stretch

No way this place can compete with J&P's...just not possible...

good news. anyone know when it's slated to open?

& if light street is approved for one-way, single-lane southbound traffic (south of cross st) to extend the sidewalks by four feet on both sides, all the food options along light are going to be gems. . .dining al fresco, anyone?!

lowercase m-

missed you last night at the party.

what do you know about making Light Street one-way? Is that even a possibility? I think that would be awesome however the city moves a little slow nowadays.

lower M would that push all Northbound to Charles/williams? I don't know if thats good or not? Id rather them turn charles/cross/light into walking only (even if just on weekends) kind of like Beale St in Memphis- with car traffic only on certain times.


My friends restaurant. Email me and I will let you know.

hello i am patrick, one of the owners of the rowhouse. first we are deciding on a name this week with "the rowhouse" being the leading vote getter. we are doing a continental elclectic menu along with a small bar food menu. our exec. chef opened chilli peppers in the outer banks, and we are very excited about his talent. the first floor will be a causual bar setting with tv;s throughout. the second floor will have a more formal dining room and a 25 foot celling lounge bar. i will keep everybody posted on opening date and name. we are hoping the downstairs will open by april 30..
