If you're ever planning on visiting Baltimore, make sure to include R. House to your itinerary. This newly-opened food hall is a feast of food and drinks made by several top local chefs, a one-stop culinary heaven for food lovers and hungry customers alike.
Set to be one of the biggest food halls in the city, R.House is surely a force to be contended by other local food halls in Baltimore such as Mount Vernon Marketplace and the Belvedere Market. It's not just a big space filled with stalls and tables and chairs-it's a $13 million project by Seawall Development Co. that aims to help local chefs establish their position in the community by providing adequate space to cook and share their dishes.
R. House made a home in the former auto warehouse of the Anderson Automotive showroom at 301 W. 29th St. And aside from the food hall itself, there's an office space and fitness studio above their premises.
In a statement by Peter DiPrinzio of Seawall: "The food hall is this European concept of having great food in one place and we wanted to replicate that. We wanted to do it in a way that fit Baltimore and fit Remington that was really showcasing great culinary talent."
R. House aims to be a place where you can feel at home, eating delicious food while mingling with the other members of Baltimore's local community. The whole design of the place was made through hand-in-hand collaborations with R.House's chef occupants, so that every stall is uniquely their own.
"We call this thing R. House - we want it to be welcoming like a home. We're trying to create just the friendliest, warmest place in the city. Our philosophy was not to be guests but to be neighbors in the community. We've worked really hard in the community over the years to listen," said John Constable, R. House's developer.
