Most recently, Regi’s brought on a new chef, TJ Garrish.
Morstein said as patronage from customers outside of Baltimore has dwindled, nearby diners have kept Regi’s afloat. He said he’ll miss the relationships he built with Federal Hill neighbors over the years.
“The neighborhood is so supportive, and the neighborhood is my core clientele,” he said. “I feel like I’m letting them down… It’s very sad. It’s a very sobering experience.”
Morstein said he intends to keep the restaurant open until it sells. The sale includes its liquor license, furniture, equipment and inventory.
“This spot won’t be vacant for long because it’s like the gateway to Federal Hill,” he said.
