Canners Row, a new restaurant and bar, is opening in the former home of the Baltimore Marine Center offices on Canton’s waterfront.
Located at 2723 Lighthouse Point East, across the parking lot from Bo Brooks Crabhouse, the red-roofed restaurant will open Wednesday or Thursday next week, owner Robert “Bobby” Alipanah said.
Canners Row will serve American cuisine including wood-fired pizzas, burgers and sandwiches. A portion of the bar near the entrance will be devoted to desserts and sweets. Small plates will range from about $8-$14, with entrees running $15-$32.
Shawn Kent will serve as Canners Row’s executive chef.
The restaurant will also offer beer, wine and cocktails, including several plays on crushes ($10-$13). The bar has eight tap lines and will serve beers from a number of local breweries, including Heavy Seas, Union Brewing Co. and Brewer’s Art ($5-$9 for 16-ounce pours or $7-$11 for 23-ounce drafts). Bottles ($4-8) will be available, too.
Named for the area that was once home to Baltimore’s canning industry, Canners Row has been in the works for about a year and a half, Alipanah said. He previously owned the now-closed Robert Oliver Seafood in Mount Vernon, now the home of Ryleigh’s Oyster.
Glass panels on three sides of the Canners Row building will slide open during warm weather. In addition to 85 seats inside, the restaurant will offer outdoor seating stretching around the building and on a covered deck in the back of the building. The deck backs up to a Baltimore Marine Centers pool, where Alipanah expects to serve members.
The restaurant will open for lunch and dinner starting at 11 a.m., and will tentatively close at 11 p.m. daily. Alipanah said his team will adjust the hours based on demand, including testing out breakfast hours about a month after Canners Row gets up and running.
