“We are just big believers in downtown Towson and we’ve worked tirelessly to create an atmosphere that’s detail rich and seeped in tradition,” co-owner Phil Gelso, a Towson University alum, said Wednesday.

Along with traditional seating, there is an “Elvis Room” that seats up to 10, and a private dining room with bar that can seat up to 50. Overall the restaurant has seating for 150 people. They won’t be on the Open Table site, but diners can call the restaurant to make reservations.

“What a terrific addition to downtown Towson,” said Councilman David Marks, who had lunch there on Wednesday. “People will appreciate the nods to Baltimore history and culture, as well as the outstanding food.”
