Peter’s Inn, the Fells Point restaurant that closed due to a fire in December, reopened on Tuesday evening.
Located at 504 S. Ann St., the bar and restaurant — a staple of the dining scene for more than two decades — opened its doors after months of renovations. In late December, a small trash fire in the middle of the night led to the closure.
“We’re just happy to be back at it,” said owner Bud Tiffany, who owns the restaurant with his wife, chef Karin Tiffany.
Restaurant fires break out in an instant, but the road to reopening often takes much longer than expected. At notable Baltimore bars and restaurants such as Charles Village Pub, Blacksauce Kitchen and Peter’s Inn, rebuilding has taken months, not weeks.
