Patrick's of Pratt Street to reopen full time
West Baltimore residents rejoice -- Patrick's of Pratt Street is back.
The Irish pub, which has been only open sporadically for the past year, has new management and could reopen as early as March 14th.
The new manager/chef is Zu Tudhope, a former sous chef who plans to bring in a better beer selection and make the menu a little less upscale. The interior will remain the same, she said.
"We're not trying to change it too much," she said. "We want to make it more accessible to the community." ...
Patrick's will be open Tuesdays-Sundays, with brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
The bar has been in the Rowley family for several generations, but has sat idle for the past year while current owners Patrick and Anne Rowley focused on their newer location in Frederick.
"They'll be able to fully focus on Frederick while I run the Baltimore location," Tudhope said. "Everyone that I talk to always misses the place. It has such a great feel."
