The former Ethel & Ramone’s in Mt. Washington re-opens tonight as Ethel’s Creole Kitchen, serving many of its popular dishes, including gumbo, plus new menu additions in its remodeled building.
After being shuttered for several months during the $600,000-plus overhaul, dinner service starts at 5 p.m. this evening, April 8, with lunch at 12 p.m. tomorrow, April 9. Brunch will follow soon.
Ethel’s food is described on its website as a mix of Cajun/Creole cuisine and local Maryland fare. Its chef/owner Ed Bloom was classically trained under chef Paul Prudhomme of Louisiana cooking fame.
The original restaurant started out serving coffee and tea 20 years ago, expanding next door 10 years ago. Its menu grew over the years.
The latest renovation includes an upstairs dining balcony, outdoor porch dining, a full-service bar downstairs, and an enlarged kitchen.
Reservations are requested at this time. Call 410-664-2971.
