Woodberry Kitchen Team Just Signed a Lease on a Remington Location

Woodberry Kitchen

The controversial development of Remington continues as Amy and Spike Gjerde, the duo behind the unintentionally Al Borland-themed farm-to-table restaurant Woodberry Kitchen, have signed a lease at what used to be a tire shop across from Charmington’s

We don’t have many details about the as yet unnamed venture, but according to the Baltimore Sun, it will be an “an extension of the intensive butchering program at Woodberry Kitchen” and it will share space with a non-profit and Single Carrot Theater. And I’m guessing it will be on the expensive side.

Remington residents — any hopes for the new restaurant? Anyone miss the tire shop?

    “Controversial.” Hah. All because of two very loud, obnoxious bullies. A vast majority of the rest of us think this is a very good thing. And for the record, the tire shop was very handy–got many a tire changed there. Nothing but love for James and Lynn.

    I once had work done at the tire store, and they were great, so I’m a bit sorry to see it go. But I’m sure the new restaurant will be very nice.

  • Rachel Monroe

    agreed — they were the nicest tire people ever.

    We in Remington couldn’t be more thrilled to get not just a new (badly needed) restaurant and local butcher (first in Baltimore?) but Woodberry… Fantastic! (sorry to see a local tire shop shut, but there are a plethora of car related businesses up and down Howard south of 25th that make this strip less than friendly to pedestrians.)

    Just because a lease was signed does not mean the project will be completed.They signed a lease last year for a building on West 36th street and after about 6 months walked away with no word to the real estate agent or landlord. Phone calls and emails were never returned.They did lose a deposit.

    I’m really confused—I’d also like to note that Spike, et. al, also signed a lease at the old Pharmacy building in Hampden (corner of 36th and Chestnut), then defaulted on their lease and threw the keys back to the landlord. Also, what the hell ever happened to the eye-sore of a building they bought on Falls Rd that was supposed to be a premium burger joint. All this history to emphasize…Don’t hold your breath, Remington!
