NOTE: Please allow two weeks to ship.
Man, the history of the now bygone Martick's is the stuff of legend. From rowhouse to grocery store to speakeasy to legit tavern... all before becoming a French restaurant. John Waters and his Dreamland performers used to hang out here in the 60s and 70s. Morris Martick was a character and a half... for those of you lucky enough to have been there, well, you KNOW.
I couldn't possibly say much more than the reams of ink spilled about Martick's, so I encourage you to Google it and prepare yourself to be amazed. I will pilfer the introduction from it's Wikipedia entry here, just as a highlight... ahem...
Martick's Restaurant Francais (previously known as Martick's Lower Tyson Street Tavern) is a defunct restaurant and historic building in Downtown Baltimore, Maryland. The 2,860 square-foot Federal style building was built no later than 1852. After serving a variety of uses over the decades, the structure opened as a French restaurant on July 9, 1970. Over its decades as a bar and restaurant, Martick's was known as an artists' refuge, "a tiny isle of Bohemia set in a conservative city. "So steeped in the particular culture of its city in the 20th century, the restaurant was referred to as "the Natty Boh of French dining in Baltimore."
