A new restaurant will take over the former Button space in Canton next month — just in time for drinks by the water.

Raw & Refined Cocktails and Eats is slated to open in May at 2723 Lighthouse Point, according to its Facebook page. The kitchen will be led by Chef Patrick Morrow, formerly of Bluegrass Tavern in South Baltimore. Dominic Lascola, who owns El Bufalo Tequila Bar & Kitchen in Canton, will be the operator.

The restaurant will breathe new life into a spot that’s undergone multiple changes through the years. The property was home to Canners Row before it was acquired by developer Scott Plank’s War Horse Cities, which evicted Canners Row last spring for failing to pay rent.

It then became Button, a neighborhood-focused bar and cafe intended to complement the recently renovated Swim Club, also owned by War Horse Cities. Before that, the building had hosted another eatery and a residential real estate office.

Beyond Swim Club and the Raw & Refined space, Plank, a former Under Armour Inc. executive, owns a swath of other properties along the waterfront, which he acquired in 2017 for more than $22.5 million. See full post here…

The owner of On the Hill Cafe in Bolton Hill has plans to open another restaurant in the neighborhood, according to documents filed with the city’s liquor board.

Chef George Dailey and his wife, Realtor Jessica Dailey, have applied for a liquor license for a new restaurant called CookHouse, which would take over a space at 1501 Bolton St. that was formerly home to B Bistro.

CookHouse will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week as well as brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, a proposed menu attached to the application shows.

Possible breakfast options include Belgian waffles, avocado toast and steel-cut oats, while the proposed lunch menu features a range of sandwiches like Banh Mis, French Dips, Reubens and the “CaliVeg” (with pickled vegetables, mashed avocado, goat cheese, greek yogurt and sprouts), as well as soup and salad options.

The proposed dinner menu offers classics like steak frites, Beef Wellington, crab cakes and sole meuniere with brown butter sauce and lemon. Sticky toffee, bread pudding, beignets and apple tarts are on the proposed dessert menu.

Though the application includes a bar menu with a list of classic cocktails, George Dailey said in an email that he has since decided to apply only for a license to serve beer and wine.

Cookhouse will have indoor and outdoor seating, according to the application. In addition to On the Hill Cafe, Dailey also owned Centro Tapas Bar in Federal Hill from 2010 to 2012. Learn more here…

The worldly menu was inspired by Chef Patrick Morrow and owner Dominic Lascola, who wanted the food to have Latin American and Caribbean influences.

Taco Bravo: We’ve seen a number of Tex-Mex spots sprout up in Baltimore County throughout the past few months, but the latest taqueria in the Padonia Village Shopping Center has a more authentic slant. The new Timonium hangout from the owners of Taco Daddy Cantina in Frederick and Gaithersburg opened earlier this week, highlighting white fish ceviche, corn tortillas filled with carnitas and lamb barbacoa, Estrella Jalisco Mexican beer, and smoky mezcal margaritas. Interior touches like hung greenery and bull-riding decor cement the theme. 31 E. Padonia Rd. Ste E. 443-689-7979


Tiki Barge: Memorial Day Weekend marks the official return of many harborside bars around town, but this outdoor drinking destination won’t be one of them. Owner Dan Naor recently confirmed to The Sun that the Inner Harbor barge, which includes its own bar and swimming pool, is not reopening this summer. Since its debut in 2010, the floating marina bar became known as an oasis to sip tiki drinks while taking in panoramic views of the city. However, soon after opening, it was met with complaints from HarborView residents about noise, illegal parking, and other disruptive behavior. There’s no word yet on whether Tiki Barge will make a comeback in the future, but the property is listed for sale at a price of $1 million and we’ve heard rumors of a possible local buyer. 500 Harborview Drive
