No I haven't been but could not get over the review in the local paper. This sounds like the place that I have always wondered why it does not exist in Baltimore. Here we are euphoric over local produce and foodways and some restaurant actually thinks to serve a crabcake in the cast iron pan it was cooked in? A cast iron pan? How did that get into a restaurant? I don't think think I've heard of one of those in a restaurant since the departed fried chicken joint "The Spot" closed in Smoketown years ago. How great is that! Serving cucumber salad as a side? I thought only Jimmy's in Bridgeville Delaware had figured out that that was something special around here.
If only it's as good as homecooking can be.
I can only wish it is the rightfull heir to Richard Caton Woodville's "Politics in an Oyster House", Thompson's Seagirt House when it was a trolley park destination, maybe Hasslinger's, Connolly's, or Gabler's, or the long gone oyster place on Howard Street that I wonder if it was the inspiration for Mama's on the Half Shell.
I admit that I have only been to The Spot, Connolly's, Gabler's, and Mama's but I am looking forward to trying Thames Street and hope the execution of the idea equals the idea.
Has anyone been? What did you find?
