The former Bar Q space is reborn as a fish shack called Choptank tonight. Named for a river in Maryland where the owners and the culinary consultant, Kevin Patricio, grew up, the joint references the Chesapeake Bay region with crab chowder, Old Bay seasoning, and Baltimores Ostrowskis Polish Sausage, served with soft pretzels and mustard, Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld wrote in the magazine this week. The spot will open with a full bar Sunday through Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to midnight, and Thursday through Saturday until 1 a.m.; brunch and lunch will eventually follow. Check out the dinner and cocktail menus below, then preview the interior and some food in our slideshow.
