The historic Chesapeake building at 1701 N. Charles Street once housed its namesake restaurant, a popular and memorable Baltimore dining destination. After over two decades of vacancy, The Chesapeake restaurant has reemerged in its original historic building as re-imagined by the owners behind Milk & Honey Market.
Positioned midway between the north and south along the eastern seaboard, Maryland’s local cuisine varies in influences while remaining thoroughly American in style—a theme carried throughout The Chesapeake, from its food and drink selections to its décor and atmosphere. Drawn to the history of its ideal location in the vibrant Station North Arts and Entertainment District, and building upon a collective focus on locally and sustainably sourced fare, the team is pleased to put this once iconic landmark back on the map.
The 130 seat restaurant with a 19 seat bar is now open for dinner service Monday through Saturday. In addition to the restaurant and bar, the entranceway serves as a cafe for busy commuters and area businesses seven days a week from 7am to 3pm serving coffee, pastry, panini and salads.
The Chesapeake has created 43 permanent jobs, hiring almost entirely from Baltimore City and working closely with Baltimore Integration Program and Humanim.
