Stone's Cove Kitbar features ChefTenders and Appetapas

A new restaurant named Stone's Cove KitBar has opened at the Boulevard College Center in Owings Mills.

This is the second Stone's Cove KitBar; the first one opened last year in Herndon, Va.

The KitBar concept is credited to its founder and CEO, B.J. Stone, whose idea of a combination kitchen and bar, or KitBar, sprung from his observation that guests at a party love to congregate in the kitchen while the host is preparing dinner.

Stone’s brainchild, Stone's Cove KitBar, puts guests around one of the restaurant's open-kitchen stations, where they are served by a ChefTender, a combination waiter, bartender, chef and entertainer.

The menu's highlights are Appetapas, shared plates that are not quite appetizers and not quite tapas, and Edibations, a foursome of little nibbles on porcelain Appetapa spoons.

There are additionally things on the menu of contemporary American food that KitBar calls sandwiches and entrees.

Other tenants at the Boulevard College Center, a mixed-use project near Stevenson University, include Outback Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill and Edo Sushi.

Stone's Cove KitBar is at 10997 Owings Mills Boulevard. For more information call 410-205-7258 or go
