“We’re fine. We’re going strong,” said Waterfront Kitchen’s chef de cuisine Levi Briggs yesterday as he was preparing for a busy dinner service. Waterfront’s consulting chef is Jerry Pellegrino, whose popular Federal Hill restaurant Corks closed last night.
Jerry will continue to work with Levi on the new restaurant’s partnership with Living Classrooms’s BUGS (Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students) program. He will also hold cooking classes that had been scheduled at Corks at Waterfront Kitchen, located on a beautiful harbor-side spot in Fells Point.
Corks closed after 14 years because of “a dispute with the landlord over facilities repairs,” a press release said. The good news for diners is that Corks gift certificates and dinner reservations will be honored at Waterfront Kitchen.
