EAT Bar & Restaurant Opens in LP
EAT, which is an acronym for ‘eggrolls and tacos,’ opened last weekend at 1371 Andre St. in LP! The new bar and restaurant takes over a space vacated by In Like Flynn Tavern. EAT has a Mexican/Asian fusion menu. A sushi bar will open within a month and by the spring EAT will add a soft-serve ice cream machine with a carryout window on Beason St. The signature drink at EAT is its margarita using a house made mix.
Local hospitality veterans Doug Campbell, Michael Leeds, and Spike Owen are the owners of EAT. Campbell and Leeds are co-owners of pizza and whiskey bar Barfly’s in Riverside.
Currently, EAT is open every day at 4pm. It will soon open for lunch at 12pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. MORE
THB Bagelry & Deli Opening at McHenry Row
Baltimore area-based bagel shop THB Bagelry & Deli has announced it will open its seventh location at McHenry Row. Iron Rooster recently downsized its space at the shopping center, and THB will occupy approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of the 7,000 sq. ft. retail suite that was previously entirely Iron Rooster. THB will take over the northern corner of the space. The menu at THB features fresh bagels, breakfast and deli bagel sandwiches, coffee, cream cheeses, omelets, paninis, soups, salads, and sides. Work is already underway on the new THB. Iron Rooster remains open. THB has not yet set an opening date. MORE
Leashes REQUIRED for Dogs in Latrobe Park
Reminder that there is a leash law in Baltimore City. All dogs must be on a leash, eight (8′) feet or less when entering or leaving a fenced-dog-run or off-leash-area. Any dog found “off-leash” outside of an established fenced-dog-run or off-leash-area will be subject to Baltimore City Leash Laws and associated fines. The LPCA has requested five additional signs from the city that indicate that all dogs in Latrobe Park must be on a leash. Additionally, dogs are also not to be running off leash behind FSK.
Note: Solar flood lights were recently installed in the dog park for increased visibility and safety.
- Write down or take a picture of the serial number of your bike; you can find it either stamped on or on a sticker on the under side of your bike. This will help the police if it gets stolen.
- If you lock bike outside, do not use cable lock as it will get cut. Use a folding lock or a U-lock. A heavy duty chain lock is good too.
- Be sure to weave the lock through the front tire, middle column of bike AND back tire.
Reimagine Middle Branch
Reimagine Middle Branch is a community-driven initiative to reconnect South Baltimore to its shoreline. Within the project area are 19 neighborhoods, 30 parks, and more than 11 miles of shoreline. Reimagine Middle Branch extends from Curtis Bay and Brooklyn in the south to Cherry Hill, Lakeland, Westport, Mt. Winans, and St. Paul west of the water; north to Carroll-Camden, Pigtown, Barre Circle, Ridgely’s Delight, and the Entertainment District; and east to Sharp-Leadenhall, Otterbein, Federal Hill, Riverside, Locust Point, South Baltimore, and Port Covington.
Historically, the Middle Branch had a gradual, natural, and resilient shoreline edge typical of the Chesapeake Bay. Over time this edge was reshaped and hardened by industry and infrastructure, resulting in a shoreline that today is thin, fragmented, and impacted by trash, highways, vacancy, and erosion. Likewise, the neighborhoods of South Baltimore that surround the Middle Branch are disconnected from one another and the water due to historic disinvestment, transportation infrastructure, and industrial uses. Despite this physical isolation, these neighborhoods are diverse and vibrant communities.
Our Baltimore Comprehensive Plan
Our Baltimore is a comprehensive plan to guide physical development of the City over the next ten years and beyond. The plan is based on community input and values, with a focus on topics related to urban planning. This planning process is being led by the Department of Planning with support from an Advisory Council and Community Engagement Leadership team. Why is this planning process important? Baltimore has a long history of inequity. This plan starts with this history. With your vision and ideas, this plan will identify what equitable neighborhood development looks like and map a concrete set of recommendations to move us towards this goal. Learn more.
If you have any issues to report or discuss with the Baltimore Police, contact our area representative,
Officer Torres. Text or call him at 443-681-0757.
