Brown's Wharf, Fells Point. Hours: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays to Wednesdays; 8 a.m. to 3 a.m. Thursdays to Saturdays. Call 276-5751.Rosalie Spence, owner of the Deli, is a familiar face. Visitors to the Brown's Wharf shop quickly recognize her from the days when she sold hot pretzels and popcorn at the Brokerage and in Fells Point. Now she sells Belgian waffles, raisin nut logs, bagels, breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and desserts at a friendly storefront on Thames Street.The Deli just opened three weeks ago, so it's not without new business pains -- a wait here, no seafood salad there -- but don't let that stop you from trying the healthy-sized combination sandwiches that come with creamy coleslaw and chips ($5.50)

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.

THE BUSINESSES that make up Baltimore's nascent "Digital Harbor" have been housed mostly in old industrial buildings recycled for new uses. Now, a local development team is formulating plans to extend the waterfront revitalization by building half a dozen structures that will fill a gap along the Fells Point shoreline while continuing the scale and character of the surrounding historic district. Struever Bros., Eccles & Rouse and Constellation Real Estate are working with the design firm of Cho Benn Holback & Associates to create a master plan that will guide development of 4.7 acres along both sides of Thames Street between Bond and Caroline streets.

John Houser III reviews The Waterfront Hotel in Fells Point, which is not to be confused with the new Waterfront Kitchen that opened late last month just two blocks west on Thames Street. Nor should the Waterfront Hotel's current menu be confused with that of the Waterfront Hotel under its previous ownership. The Fells Point property changed hands in February, and things have changed, for the better, Houser says. Here's his review of The Waterfront Hotel .

Ann Costlow opened the original next to the Charles Theatre in 2004.

If anyone was paying attention, which they probably weren't after a few sips, all they needed to know about the Horse You Came In On revealed itself in the saloon's first hour of business. That's when a silver-haired dude in a black hat rode a horse through the front door and up to the bar. And nobody minded. It was Aug. 7, 1972, the waterfront streets of Fells Point weren't yet synonymous with bar-hopping, and Ken Piaskowski, a friend of the new saloon's owner, was happy to help. "We got a little crazy," Piaskowski says, still proud of how he paid $20 to borrow the pony.

The city's Board of Estimates is to vote Wednesday on a plan for a hotel on the historic Recreation Pier in Fells Point, calling for the city to alter an ordinance to allow the Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank-backed hotel to proceed without a public promenade around the property. Instead of the promenade, Sagamore Development Co., controlled by Plank and Chevy Chase developer Marc Weller, would be required to make improvements to Thames Street, from Ann Street to South Broadway and in front of the pier, according to the agenda for Wednesday's Board of Estimates meeting.

Beatty Development Group President Michael Beatty has sold the Thames Street Wharf office building in Harbor Point to a California-based real estate company for $89 million. At $341 per rentable square foot, Monday's sale of the 8-story building to KBS Realty Advisors, sets a Baltimore record, said Bo Cashman, a senior vice president of the institutional properties group at commercial real estate firm CBRE, which represented the seller in the transaction. The previous record was set in 2005, when Georgia-based Wells Real Estate Investment Trust II Inc. bought the home of T. Rowe Price, 100 E. Pratt Street, for $316 per square foot.

Fells Point is known for a lot of things - cobblestone streets, fun bars, seafood - but Italian fare is not among them. Anastasia, the newest offering from Kali's Restaurant Group, could change that. The restaurant, which opened in January in the Thames Street space vacated by Meli (also a Kali's Group venture), bills itself as an "Italian bistro" and also as an upscale nightclub. Those two identities don't fit together perfectly, but as a restaurant, Anastasia gets the important stuff - the food and service - just right.

A development group backed by Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank could breathe new life into a stalled plan to transform the landmark and long-vacant Recreation Pier in Fells Point into a luxury hotel. A representative of Sagamore Development LLC presented plans for a 128-room hotel with a restaurant and a pool during Wednesday's annual meeting of the Fells Point Main Street organization, according to people who attended the meeting.

The developer of Harbor Point has placed Thames Street Wharf, the Baltimore offices of Morgan Stanley, on the market. Morgan Stanley is the primary tenant in the 277,000 square-foot building, the first in the planned 27-acre Harbor Point development. The building opened in 2010 on 1.3 acres at 1300 Thames Street. The asking price was not disclosed. Beatty Development Group LLC is looking to recapitalize the debt and equity for the $100 million building and is using commercial real estate company CBRE to "generate interest," said Marco Greenberg, vice president at Beatty, in a statement.

I was not prepared for the sheer candlepower of Harbor East when I went in search of some early Christmas spirit this week. Moving along Albemarle Street, where the holiday lights burned hot and bright, I made some mental comparisons with the old Howard Street and its department stores. Hands down, Harbor East outperformed the staid department stores. The place had a nighttime energy - and the circle at President Street reminded me of a kind of Times Square bustle. The traffic was maddening but there was no getting away from the reality that this part of downtown Baltimore is an authentic December destination.

Few development projects at highly sensitive locations have had the preliminary attention accorded to the site of the old AlliedSignal chemical plant on the Inner Harbor. Instead of dropping a wrapped package at City Hall's doorstep, AlliedSignal and its local advisers have held extensive negotiations -- involving real give and take -- for 10 months. Not everyone between the harbor and Fells Point is satisfied, but so far, so good.The AlliedSignal rendering calls for a mixture of housing, offices, shops and public facilities on the 27-acre site.

THE PROBLEM : Streetlamps along the Harbor Promenade in Fells Point have been unlit since 2006. THE BACKSTORY: Michael D. Williams was not the first person to write to Watchdog about the unlit streetlights. Most of the public walkway that runs along the waterfront from Federal Hill to Canton has plenty of light, but a stretch that starts at The Crescent apartments to where Thames Street dead-ends at the water had been in the dark. Williams, a Canton resident who runs along the path, said he first noticed the problem in September.

We really should have known better. Last Friday night, a friend and I strolled into Thames Street Oyster House, the Fells Point restaurant that has served the most delicious seafood in the neighborhood since opening in July 2011, without a reservation. What were we thinking? It was just before 8 p.m., and the first floor was buzzing with dinner dates and anxious diners waiting for prized tables to open. Upstairs was booked for the night, so the downstairs bar area was our only option, according to our smiling hostess.

The Kali's Restaurant Group will open Anastasia, an Italian restaurant, in the Thames Street location where it used to operate Meli. The menu of approachable Italian food - think pastas, panini, charcuterie and gourmet pizzas - is from executive chef Ryn Dorsey. The wine program will offer bio-dynamic and sustainable options, according to Tracey Wise, the restaurant's general manager. When Anastasia opens, it will serve dinner only but will soon add lunch service, and eventually breakfast service, too, Wise said.
