According to a press release that was sent out:
Phillips Seafood opened in 1980 with great fanfare as the flagship restaurant in the Inner Harbor. Phillips was the anchor, and heart and soul of Harborplace for three decades, as legions of Baltimoreans familiar with their Ocean City venue flocked to the restaurant downtown. Phillips growth and success made national news over the last 30 years and consistently placed its Harborplace facility in the top 100 highest grossing independent restaurants in the country.
Phillips’ move to the Power Plant will open a new chapter for the popular seafood restaurant. The interior will boast two full bars with a layout conducive to hosting private parties and will provide a full-service, classic seafood dining experience. In addition, there will be an exciting outdoor hard shell crab deck on a barge directly in front of the restaurant. The Power Plant location is scheduled to open in the Fall of 2011.
Steve Phillips, President and CEO of Phillips Seafood Restaurants, stated, “We are extremely excited to be working with visionary David Cordish and The Cordish Companies to help us bring an exceptional visitor experience and create a festive and communal atmosphere for our guests. Phillips is a natural fit in the space and can help enhance the excitement and action already taking place on the east side of the Harbor.”
“Phillips Seafood is a name synonymous with Baltimore and classic Maryland-style seafood,” stated Blake Cordish, Vice President of The Cordish Companies. “We are thrilled not to lose them as an anchor in the Inner Harbor, to welcome them to the Power Plant and to bring together two families, the Phillips and the Cordishes, who share a rich history in the redevelopment of downtown Baltimore.”
