The Reserve in Federal Hill shut itself down at the end of February and reopened on March 9 as 1542 Gastropub.
The chef at 1542 Gastropub is Cyrus Keefer, formerly of Saute and Brasserie 10 South.

A menu of snacks, greens and meats and cheese is posted on the website. But there doesn't appear to be a regular menu of entrees. Instead, daily entrees and features are posted at the restaurant and on the Facebook page.
The snacks include the following: Creekstone Beef Carpaccio with chili-eggplant relish, Grana Padano cheese, aged balsamic and toast; tuna wonton tacos and a wood-grilled octopus pizza with cured lemon, olive, harissa and cucumber crema.
The greens plates are things like a cucumber and bread salad and strawberry and pickled asparagus salad with baby arugula and goat cheese.
Meats and cheeses can be gathered up for $5 each and paired with $2 accompaniments like truffle honey, olives, pickles and barbecued almonds.
1542 Gastrpub is at 1542 Light St. in Federal Hill. For information call 410-605-0955 or go 1542gastropub.com.
