A bittersweet farewell to Frank M. Reid at Bethel AME
Baltimore Diner

The Reserve is now 1542 Gastropub

The Baltimore Sun

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.

1542 Gastropub has a new website, a new Facebook page and a new Twitter account (@1542Gastropub)/.

You can read about the restaurant's rebranding efforts here.

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.
