Umami Global Bistro opened on Frederick Road in January.
Rehan Khan was excited to turn the former Tiffany’s Pizza on Frederick Road into a sit-down restaurant, but renovations forced him to keep the building closed for more than two years. “We had to gut out everything, start all over,” he said. After replacing virtually everything in the place, including building a brand-new kitchen, Khan opened Umami Global Bistro on January 25. While he kept the pizza and burgers, Khan’s restaurant specializes in Mediterranean cuisine like shawarma, falafel, hummus, gyros and babaganoush. Umami uses all organic meat, and the lamb and beef is all grass-fed. While going the extra mile for those ingredients is a lot of work, Khan believes the freshness and health benefits of unprocessed food is worth it in the …

Sean Dunworth said that nothing will change with the restaurant.
(UPDATED TUESDAY) Sean Dunworth, the co-owner of Catonsville Gourmet and founder of Regions, has sold Catonsville Gourmet. Dunworth said he couldn't speak more about the sale or the details because the deal was still being finalized. The popular Frederick Road seafood restaurant was sold to restaurant owner Craig Rinkerman, who Dunworth said does not own any restaurants in the area.

The Frederick Road restaurant owners needed more space that they could utilize year round.
While many patrons loved the covered deck upstairs at Ship's Cafe, the space was only used during the days when the weather was nice. But owners Jim and Sharon Andrews have needed more seating year round and can't expand anywhere else on the Frederick Road property. "We're bursting at the seams," Sharon Andrews told Patch Wednesday. So the owners decided to enclose the deck, adding siding and windows. Now, they have seating for 32 all year, she said. The upstairs area still feels like a outside seating, with eight double windows that can open when the weather is warm. The screens are invisible, giving dinners a better view of Frederick Road. The room will soon be open to diners every day after a few more finishing touches are made to the …
