The Wine Market Bistro in Locust Point will close its restaurant next weekend after nearly 14 years in business.
The restaurant at 921 E. Fort Ave. will close March 17, owner Chris Spann confirmed in an email. The wine shop portion of the business, as well as a bar inside the shop, will remain open after the dining room closes.
“I am proud of the unique history Wine Market has in the hospitality industry in Baltimore,” Spann wrote. “I am blessed to have worked with a who’s who of talented Baltimore chefs.”
The bistro opened in 2004 serving modern American fare and wines from its adjacent shop.
Until it closes, the Wine Market will offer $13 off all wines from its featured list.
We love a good anniversary. Baltimore is about to host a huge, weeklong celebration for the 200th anniversary of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Unless they're traveling by frigate, everybody and his brother is going to be passing through Locust Point on the way to Fort McHenry. Also celebrating ¿ Locust Point's own Wine Market Bistro, which is marking its 10th anniversary this month with various promotions and by feting diners with complimentary hors d'ouevres and wine tastings.
