The Bagby Restaurant Group has released details about their two new restaurant concepts in the Bagby Building, along with the news that Christopher "Squints" Becker will be leaving the Wine Market to join its company as co-executive chef with Mark Davis.
The first, a contemporary bistro named TEN TEN, and located adjacent to Bagby Pizza Company, is tentatively scheduled to open in late August.
TEN TEN, a Bagby representative says, will offer "a warm urban setting with a contemporary American menu at affordable prices. It’s a neighborhood café, elegant bistro and eclectic tavern all balanced into one beautiful and inviting space. The varied menu is crafted to fit any mood from casual bites to special occasion, making it the perfect place for a quick bite, intimate meal for fun gathering place with friends."
The opening date for the second restaurant, Fleet Street Kitchen, an open-kitchen, farm-to-table style will be announced later this summer.
When Becker leaves the Wine Market, he will be joining Davis, formerly of The Woodfire in Severna Park and Baltimore Country Club who arrived at Bagby Restaurant Group last month. They will jointly direct the culinary elements of Bagby Pizza Co., TEN TEN and Fleet Street Kitchen, according to a represenative for the company.
