THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Chesapeake Restaurant Review

: For much of the 20th century, The Chesapeake was the place to dine. Thick-cut steaks, unabashedly rich seafood, and strong cocktails were the order of the day as milestones were celebrated, and sorrows drowned, in its swank, sprawling dining rooms. When it closed in the late eighties, it left many nostalgic and hungry fans behind. So it was major news when, after a quarter century, the old place showed signs of new life. With its exposed beams, handsome bar, high-top tables and maritime murals, the reborn Chesapeake is casual but classy, suited to Station North’s hipster-friendly vibe while honoring the Old Baltimore traditions of its predecessor. Seafood is still a major player, and you can still get a first-rate Prime New York strip and even the signature coconut cake “snowball” of yore. But the menu shows its 21st-century pedigree: shareable small plates, charcuterie, local craft beers, and plenty of focus on local sourcing and sustainability. Must-try items from chef Jordan Miller include shrimp and grits with wild mushrooms, Maryland chicken with braised greens, and buttermilk biscuits.
