Tavern on the Square has opened in the Canton. It's in the old Fins space.
Mel Carter, the general manager and part owner of Blue Hill Tavern, also in Canton, purchased Fins last September and, for a few months, kept things as they were. Right after the new year, Carter says, he closed the property for one week.
Fins reopened on Monday with a cosmetic makeover, a new menu and new name. The new interior, Carter says, is decorated with black wood furniture and trim and vintage black-and-white photography of old Baltimore.
Carter describes the menu at Tavern on the Square as "contemporary American bar fare with a focus on game oriented dishes." Look for sliders with Cuban pork belly sliders, venison chili, duck confit spring rolls, wild boar ragout and pheasant pot pie.
Tavern on the Square is at 2903 O'Donnell St. The phone number is 410-675-1880.
