Restaurant owners and management were scrambling to return to normal operations on Tuesday morning. A few places were already doing business in the early morning.
Many full-scale restaurants were skipping lunch service, usually because of restrictions placed on driving and the suspension of public transportation. Among those posting notices on social media that they would be open for Tuesday dinner service (but not for lunch) were Crush, M&S Grill, Brewer's Art, Caesar's Den, Linwoods, The Wine Market, and Franc & Nic's West End Grille
Open for lunch and dinner on Tuesday: Milk & Honey Market, City Cafe, the Owl Bar and Midtown BBQ and Brew in Mount Vernon; Kooper's Tavern and Max's Taphouse in Fells Point; Jimmy's Seafood in Broening Manor; Alonso's, S'Ghetti Eddie's in Keswick; Claddagh Pub, Looney's and Nacho Mama's in Canton; The Miss Shirley's in Keswick, downtown and Annapolis; and Zia's Cafe in Towson.
Gino's in Towson is open on Tuesday and is inviting service men and women to come by for 50% off their entire check "in appreciation of working, preparing, and preserving our safety and comfort."
Also closed on Tuesday: Harborplace & The Gallery, Mondawmin Mall, Towson Town Center, White Marsh Mall. Restaurants in Harborplace with their own exterior entrances had the option of opening on Tuesday, but most stayed closed, with the exception of The Cheesecake Factory, whcih was open for lunch and dinner and La Tasca and M&S Grilll, which were opening for dinner.
J. Paul's and Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. will reopen Wednesday morning.
Most food trucks suspended operations on Tuesday.
