Food editor Suzanne Loudermilk already wrote about the menu and decor at Fells Point's newest restaurant/bar, aptly named The Point in Fells, which opened last Wednesday. This morning on my way to work, I got to take a sneak peek at some of the specials offered at the new place (formerly Poe Boys, which was formerly Miss Irene's).
According to its specials board, The Point offers 18 beers on tap. Plus, they have a Wednesday night special featuring half-off a bottle of wine with a purchase of any entree. Its Friday night happy hour (from 5-7 p.m.) features $4 drafts, $4 cocktails, and $2 shooters. Fairly decent deals.
I hope this place does well. It seems that there are certain spaces in the city that are just cursed—this building, on the corner of Thames and Ann, being one of them. Offering upscale cuisine (The Point has $18-24 entrees) is a challenge in a nightlife-haven like Fells Point, though the Kali's Restaurant Group has seemed to pull it off. But, the chef is experienced and the space remains beautiful and modern, so time will tell.
A good starting point could be its Friday happy hour scene, which can be a pretty solid indicator of a new place's longevity.
