The Catonsville restaurant closed in late June after four years of operation. Serving a menu of international cuisine, Regions was a spin-off project from the owners and chef of the popular Catonsville Gourmet, which remains in business.
A message posted to the restaurant's website said, "It has been an amazing ride so it is with heavy hearts that we announce Regions Restaurant will be closing our doors for good on Sunday, June 29th." The message also informed patrons that their Regions gift cards will be honored at Catonsville Gourmet.
"It was a good little restaurant," said owner Craig Rinkerman. "It was just one of those things," he said about the decision to close. Rinkerman said he plans to lease out the Frederick Road space to a new group of restaurant operators. (Lloyd Fox, Baltimore Sun photo /July 16, 2010)
After only four months of operation, Joey B's Bar & Grille has closed. The restaurant, which featured variations on Sicilian rice balls on its menu, along with build-your-own burgers, panini, and hot turkey sandwiches, opened in mid-August.
A message posted to Joey B's Facebook page said, "It is with great regret that we had to close down Joey B's. We loved our patrons and appreciate their loyalty. We enjoyed our time being part of Federal Hill and will miss the area tremendously."
Joey B's was owned by Joseph Bivona, who operates the Grille at Peerce's Landing in the old Peerce's Plantation property on Dulaney Valley Road. An employee at Peerce's confirmed the closing at Joey B's and said Bivona was out of town.
