Tavern on the Square, O’Donnell Square that is - now open

You know the restaurant space on O’Donnell Square, sure you do!  Formerly Razorbacks, Rick’s American and the last incarnation was Fins on the Square.  The boys, because if you are under 30 to me you are still boys, Mel Carter and Brett Lockard of Blue Hill Tavern renown are partners in Tavern on the Square (TOTS).  Top toque is Blue Hill Tavern’s former executive sous chef, Jeremy Thatcher, who isn’t afraid of showing his penchant for bold flavors.

The partners took over ownership of Fins on the Square in the early fall. Carter took the first week of 2012 to refurbish the space and change over to Tavern on the Square.  An extended bar, black wood trim and seating combined with the “rosemary sprig” color paint for the walls create a subdued back drop to A.  Audrey Bodine’s Baltimore photographs.
