I just got back from Sip & Bite, Baltimore's legendary greasy spoon, to check out rumors of its closure. I started getting besieged this morning by people who had seen paper covering the windows and wondered what was going on.
No one was answering the restaurant's phone, so I decided to do my own investigative reporting and head to the scene in Canton. Indeed, paper is on the windows. But, according to a flier on the door, Sip & Bite is closed for remodeling and will reopen Friday, Feb. 27, at 11 p.m. (That's not a typo. The flier said p.m.!) There's also a permit on the front window from the Division of Construction and Building inspectors stating that recessed lighting is being installed—fluorescent strip lights if you're curious. I guess now we'll get to see our food better.
