On Dec. 8, the much anticipated food hall R. House will open in Remington. The $13 million food hall which previously housed an historic car showroom and garage, was designed by social entrepreneurs at Seawall to create an opportunity for talented chefs to more easily and effectively launch new restaurant concepts.
R. House’s permanent stalls will include:
Dave Sherman’s breakfast and coffee concept, Ground & Griddled
Amano Taco, a taqueria featuring authentic Mexican tacos
Heather Chung and sister Unmi Kim’s casual Korean Barbecue concept, BeBim
Farid Salloum’s modern take on Mediterranean street food, ARBA
BRD, a fried chicken joint
White Envelope, Federico Tischler’s modern style of arepas, a Venezuelan comfort food
BLK // SUGAR and Little Baby’s Ice Cream– two dessert brands with experimental flavors in one stall
Hilo – Baltimore’s first poke place
Melanie Molinaro’s vegetarian and vegan street food concept, Stall 11, powered by Urban Pastoral
R. Bar, a craft concept led by Aaron Joseph and Amie Ward
After Dec. 8, R. House’s Market and Bar Operating Hours will be:
- Monday – Thursday: 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. or Close
- Friday: 7 a.m. – 12 a.m.
- Saturday 8a.m. – 12 a.m.
- Sunday: 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. or Close
- R. Bar opens at 3 p.m. weekdays, and 10 a.m. on weekends and has the same closing hours as the market.
While these spots are already set, chefs interested in testing out new concepts can take advantage of R. House’s fully outfitted pop-up kitchen for up to two months.
“Call it an incubator or a launchpad,” says Peter DiPrinzio, General Manager, “this space is a way for local chefs to bring their ideas to life and find their start.”
The expansive 50,000-square-foot-space features15-ft.-tall windows, roll-up garage doors, and 350 seats in 12,000 square feet of wide-open seating with sofas, high tops, low tops, communal tables, booths, patio seats, and bar stools.
“We’ve designed this space so that anyone can come in and find their ‘spot,’” explains DiPrinzio. “By calling ourselves ‘R. House, this space has the potential to become a ‘third place’ for our guests.”
For those looking to host events, the LEED Silver Certified venue also has “The Garage” which boasts 6,000 square feet of open space for events such as private parties, community gatherings, and bike-in movies.
“We imagine this space will become a place for community and celebration,” added Stephanie Hsu, Marketing and Events Manager. “The Garage is a blank slate, so it can be reinvented for each event.”
