Pratt Street Ale House eyeing Riordan's in Annapolis
In early March, we learned the Pratt Street Ale House is looking to expand into Annapolis and maybe South Baltimore.
I heard from several people that co-owner Justin Dvorkin was in talks with Brian McComas about taking over Taverna Corvino. Untrue, McComas told me. It's just a rumor. A popular rumor, but a rumor nonetheless.
I did, however, find out what space Dvorkin and Co. are eyeing in Annapolis: The old Riordan's ...
Riordan's closed in 2007 (I actually dug up an interesting Sun article about its final days. Might post that at some point this week).
Dvorkin is in talks with the landlord as well as Annapolis city officials, trying to figure out building updates, permits and such.
"We're hoping," he said. "We've got our fingers crossed."
