Fall Preview: 7 Bar and Restaurant Openings in Baltimore

Fall may be traditionally known for bringing cooler air and the changing colors of the leaves, but this year in Baltimore, it's going to be known for bringing a major influx of new bars and restaurants to the area. Below are seven newcomers to look forward to — let us know what you think when you try them out.

Cunningham’s: This American-inspired restaurant will open in the Towson City center in "early fall." Led by chef Chris Becker, the menu will follow in the Bagby Restaurant tradition of featuring local and sustainable meats and produce (1 Olympic Pl., Towson; 410-244-1311).

Mission BBQ:  As part of a massive expansion plan, Mission BBQ plans to open one of a restaurant in the Canton Crossing shopping center this October. A small beer selection will be available for purchase with your brisket, pulled pork and mac 'n' cheese (3501 Boston St.).

Nickel Taphouse: By the end of the year, Robbin Haas, the restaurateur behind the successful Birroteca, will open his next venture in Mount Washington in the former location of Blue Sage Cafe and Wine Bar. Rumor has it the taphouse will feature over 30 beers and 50 varieties of wine, which sounds right up our alley (1604 Kelly Ave.)

Oliver Speck’s: This BBQ-focused restaurant recently opened in the Bagby Building in Harbor East to high acclaim. The carefully chosen beer menu highlights some of Baltimore’s favorite local options from Stillwater and Union Brewery, and there are plenty of cocktail and bourbon options to choose from as well (507 S. Exeter St.; 410-528-8600).

Shoo-Fly: On the bottom level of this new Belvedere Square diner will be a bar that complements the hybrid comfort food and classic diner menu.  This marks the third opening for Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen and Artifact Coffee (510 E. Belvedere Ave.)

Sweet Caroline’s: After 12 years as Pazza Luna, this Locust Point restaurant has been remodeled into a fresh, local tavern that opened mid-August. There are plenty of beverage options including many cocktails worth exploring this fall (1401 E Clement St.; 410-244-1401).

World of Beer: Locust Point is about to experience an exponential increase in beer options as the World of Beer prepares to open its doors this October. Prepare for a large selection of craft and national beers, live music and more (1724 Whetstone Way).
