Shoo-Fly, the much-anticipated “farmhouse diner” concept from celebrated Woodberry Kitchen chef Spike Gjerde, opens tonight in Baltimore’s Belvedere Square. The restaurant won’t be open 24-7 but plans to serve breakfast anytime, and will also keep a fried-chicken supper on its menu. Seasonal dishes from chef de cuisine Opie Crooks might include a Chesapeake crab roll, an oyster po’ boy or cast-iron catfish. Frozen drinks will incorporate a rotating selection of soft-serve ice creams, such as salty caramel and apple pie. The 5,000-sq.-ft. space will seat about 100 total in the restaurant and at the bar, and also serves as headquarters for the restaurant group’s canning and preserving operation.
Shoo-Fly is open 4 PM to 1 AM daily.
