Best Comeback (actual)

The Chesapeake

1701 N. Charles St., (410) 547-2760,

Dormant even longer than its sci-fi neighbor on North Charles (Lost City Diner), the Chesapeake reopened this year after more than 24 years. What was once an upscale meat-and-potatoes-plus-seafood place where your grandparents dined has been reborn as a vaguely locavore-friendly establishment with great promise. Only up and running since the first week of July, the restaurant continues to tweak and refine its offerings—presently including roasted chicken, rockfish, and Peking duck—and on our latest visit, a bartender mentioned possible future happy-hour discounts on bar snacks. Our fingers are crossed that prices will move down a smidgen, but that’s mainly because we’d be so pleased to spend more time here. Owned by the same folks as Milk & Honey Market (a CP staff favorite), we expect good things to come.
