When one loses a favorite restaurant, it's human nature that the next occupant of the space sometimes has one strike against them immediately, because they are associated with the unfortunate circumstances that made the space available. In this instance, I'd like to give the new guy in the space previously occupied by Ras Doobie's a fair chance, and I encourage Chowhounds to do likewise.
In line with that, does anybody know if the new place is open yet, what sort of place it is, and has anybody tried it yet? If somebody has more info than we got in the thread about Doobie's closing, please post.
As much as I miss Doobie's, Baltimore can always use another good restaurant, and if the new place is Chow-worthy, I'd like to see them make a go of it.
