I kind of forgot that restaurants close on July Fourth. Like it's Christmas or something. But they do. Good brunch places like B&O Brasserie, Victoria Gastro Pub and Golden West are all closed on July Fourth. All of the municipal market, including Lexington Market, are closed, too.
The Prime Rib, Blue Hill Tavern, The Milton Inn, the Manor Tavern, Woodberry Kitchen and Linwoods are taking the day off, too. The Foreman-Wolf restaurants -- Pazo, Charleston, Cinghiale and Petit Louis -- are closed. Petit Louis has been closed, without power, since the storm but expects to reopen July 5.
The Helmand, B in Bolton Hill and Tapas Teatro are all closed on July Fourth. So is Peter's Inn. Salt Tavern is on vacation this week and will reopen July 10. Sascha's is on vacation, too, and will reopen on July 9.
But the Oregon Grille is open.
In Fells Point, all of the restaurants in the Kali's Restaurant Group -- Kali's Court, Meli, Mezze, and Tapas Adela -- are open. Slainte is open for breakfast from 7 to 11 a m., and Kooper's and Woody's Rum Bar open at 11 a.m. for lunch. All three are open for dinner. Blue Moon Cafe is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In Federal Hill, Ryleigh's Oyster in Federal Hill is open, the newly opened Regi's opens at 9 a.m., and Mr. Rain's Fun House is open for lunch but not dinner.
Langermann's in Canton is open for lunch and dinner.
Downtown, Fleming's is running its 5 for $6 'til 7 menu all night long. The menu features five cocktails, five wines by the glass and five appetizers, each priced at $6. The new bar a la carte menu will also be available.
