True Chesapeake Oyster House HAMPDEN Port Covington NEW HORIZONS Whitehall Mill, located along the Jones Falls—where a number of historic mills have been restored and reused—is being developed into a marketplace, offices, apartments and a new restaurant. Opening in fall of 2019, True Chesapeake Oyster House is a collaboration of two local oyster purveyors and chef Zack Mills, formerly of Michael Mina’s Wit & Wisdom. Chef Mills’ menu will revolve around oysters direct from True Chesapeake’s farm in southern Maryland—raw, steamed and in signature dishes like Classic Rockefeller and Semolina Fried Oysters—complemented by varied seasonal entrees ranging from yellow perch with caramelized peaches to grilled pork loin with ramp spaghetti. Baltimore’s skyline is continuously changing as neighborhoods expand, new restaurants are built and historic buildings emerge refreshed.
