Meli has closed in Fells Point. A representative from the Kali's Restaurant Group, which leases the space in the Admiral Fell Inn, confirmed the closing. Kali's Restaurant Group will reopen the space after some renovations with a new concept, which is still being developed. Construction on the space is due to start after Kali's opens the old Admiral's Cup -- no relation to the Admiral Fell Inn. That opening could be as early as this Saturday. Meli opened in 2007 to positive reviews.

There's a lesson to be learned in Fells Point's past and present along its main business street. South Broadway, between Aliceanna and Fleet streets, looks like a scene out of World War II Eastern Europe. On both the east and west sides of the street, the once-familiar rowhouse businesses are gutted. Steel beams support what remains, a thin brick crust of 19th-century brick facades. Stand on Broadway, and you'll see straight through to Regester or Dallas streets. But not for long. After decades of waiting and unkept promises from past developers, residents are now looking to a rebirth here, with 159 new apartments constructed in two sets of blocks behind the old shop fronts.

The woman found stabbed to death this week in Fells Point was a popular and longtime waitress at an upscale Italian restaurant. Baltimore police released the identities of three homicide victims including Claudia Parodi, 40, who officers found Monday night with multiple stab wounds to her chest and arms. She was killed in her home in the 700 block of S. Bond St., about two blocks from the Fells Point waterfront. Police had been called by a co-worker who hadn't heard from Parodi for several days.

John Houser III reviews Nanami Cafe in Fells Point for Friday's Live section. Yes, this is where Kawasaki was. It looks all new and shiny. This is the Ann Street space where Kawasaki used to be. With a great view of the water, Nanami makes for a romantic destination for (sushi) lovers, John decides. Here's a link to his review.

Dirty Carrots, whose all-vegan salted caramel cupcakes and whoopie pies, have become a popular presence at farmers' markets, is opening a full-time bakery cafe in Fells Point. Dirty Carrots joins three other Baltimore Farmers' Market vendors who have recently spun their market success into fixed locations. The Verandah, a retail and lunch spot on the Avenue in Hampden, is from Radhika Sule of Roland Park Rustic Gourmet. Nikki Lewis' marshmallow treats are now served at the Mallow Bar, a dessert cafe she opened February in Rosedale.

Bond Street Social opens Thursday night in Fells Point. This is the old DuClaw space in the Bond Street Wharf building, although you'd have trouble recognizing it. The few hundred friends and neighbors who turned out for Bond Street Social's Wendesday night preview party got a feel for the space, which has been radically transformed. The urban lodge look has been introduced into a space that DuClaw tried to make work as a suburban sports bar. Upon its closing, the DuClaw operators honorably acknowledged their formula, so successful elsewhere, was wrong for the neighborhood.

When you park at a sign in Fells Point that says "2 Hour Parking Limit in Area #16," please pay careful attention to the preposition (which I italicize for those of you who, like me, didn't pay much attention in sixth grade English). It does not mean move your car to another space before your two hours is up — it means evacuate your car from Area #16 entirely or you will be ticketed $52. Do not evacuate on Area #16, no matter how strong the urge! Prepositions make a critical difference in Area #16, and those you evacuating in the street will surely get a citation.

It was just a year ago, on a cold and moody November morning, that I met with Fells Point residents outside a sad construction pit at Broadway and Aliceanna Street. A developer had razed both sides of a once-familiar block of shops. Our group looked around and hoped for a promising future, but I remained more than a little skeptical. I've always reverenced the fragile nature of Fells Point's ancient, little-changed streets. For decades, the neighborhood seemed preserved by its own poverty.

A new restaurant will open in the Living Classroom's Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Museum in late October. Waterfront Kitchen will feature a menu of "spirited American cuisine" designed by Jerry Pellegrino of Corks and will "emphasize seasonal ingredients," some of which will be grown by students in Living Classroom 's BUGS (Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students) program in a greenhouse located on the school's nearby Caroline Street campus.  The new restaurant, which will seat 75 inside and 100 outside on a waterside promenade, is owned by Charles Nabit and Michael Klein.

From its waterfront perch at the corner of Thames Street and Broadway, Barcocina might occupy the most enviable real estate in all of Baltimore. With views of the harbor on one side and historic Fells Point on the other, the restaurant provides a glimpse of Baltimore at its most attractive. With those vistas and that central location, Barcocina's owners would have been forgiven for playing it safe in the kitchen, sticking with crab cakes and bar food. Instead, the restaurant has adopted a modern approach to Mexican food, serving creative twists on familiar dishes like tacos and seviche.

As a new business, "MiY Home" and "Sleep Lab Z," we are very excited for the Red Line coming two blocks from our store ( "MTA announces series of 'open houses' on Red Line," Sept. 16). We purchased two connected abandoned buildings in the back of Fells Point (Douglass Place). One factor in doing this was that Baltimore was putting in a Red Line and people could get around and visit us without getting into cars to go shop in the furniture stores outside the city. I know the Red Line is controversial, but many of my neighbors and business peers have planted down roots in homes and businesses along the stops because this project moves Baltimore closer to being a world city.

The Scunny Memorial Paddle, which ran from Sept. 16 to 21, turned out to be even less fun than Christopher Furst, a marketing director for Power Plant Live, thought it would be. And the novice kayaker didn't go in expecting the 175-mile kayak trip was going to be a day at the beach. "In all honesty, it was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. I've played every sport, baseball, football," Furst said, "but this was sheer endurance, paddling eight hours a day in an uncomfortable position.

Walking through Fells Point, Jamie Hubbard often stared at Pearl's, a bar on the corner of Aliceanna and Wolfe streets. Pearl's was a dive that offered cheap beer and pool tables, but Hubbard always envisioned more, especially given the prime location between Fells Point and Canton. “It just seemed like it wasn't living up to its potential,” Hubbard said recently. Earlier this spring, he and partner Mike Maraziti (the “Mike” of One-Eyed Mike's, where Hubbard is also the general manager)

Shuckers of Fells Point is closing. Co-owner Andy Rosenthal said that the restaurant's lease was up and it's not being renewed. Shuckers' last day, Rosenthal said, will be either June 30 or July 31. Shuckers opened in 2005 in the Brown's Wharf complex, in what has always seemed like a can't-miss waterfront location in Fells Point. But Shuckers actually lasted longer than its predecessors, Timothy's and Piccolos. #sigshell { padding: 10px; float: left; width: 320px; height: 52px; margin: 20px 0px; display: block; }

Even though he was a child during rock 'n' roll's hedonistic late '80s, Jack Barakat hopes to inject the same party-hard attitude into the Fells Point bar scene. The 26-year-old guitarist of All Time Low — which started in Towson and has blossomed into one of pop-punk's most known bands — is now a co-owner of The Rockwell, the bar-lounge hybrid that originally opened as Vale Tudo last November. (The name change, which became official in June, aims to better reflect the rock vibe, according to management.)
