Rye Street Tavern Reopens for Private Events, Targets 2022 Restaurant Reopening

| September 2, 2021 | 0 Comments

Rye Street Tavern at the Sagamore Spirit distillery at 301 E. Cromwell St. in Port Covington has reopened for private events, however its public restaurant remains closed. NoHo Hospitality Group, the New York City-based restaurant group by Chef Andrew Carmellini that ran Rye Street Tavern, is not currently involved.

NoHo Hospitality Group is still the food and beverage partner at Rec Pier Chophouse at The Sagamore Pendry Baltimore, which has common ownership with Sagamore Spirit.

“Sagamore Spirit has remained in touch with NoHo Hospitality Group as we work through our planning process for Rye Street Tavern,” said Sagamore Spirit President Brian Treacy.  “For the near future, Rye Street Tavern will operate solely as a private event space. Sagamore Spirit will communicate progress as we prepare for a full reopening of Rye Street Tavern in 2022.”

NoHo Hospitality Group did not respond to requests for comment.

Sagamore Spirit announced in May it was halting operations at Rye Street Tavern to “take time to pause and reimagine Rye Street Tavern as a more integral part of the Sagamore Spirit experience and the exciting redevelopment in Port Covington.”

Sagamore Spirit also has a cocktail bar, Nineteen O’Nine, on its campus.

The area around Sagamore Spirit remains a heavy construction site as work is underway on Chapter 1B of the multi-billion dollar Port Covington Development. Cromwell St. is closed in front of the distillery.

Chapter 1B is expected to wrap up next year.
