We’ve heard rumblings about a restaurant opening in downtown Baltimore owned by former Orioles catcher Rick Dempsey.  Now we have a name, Kettle Hill, and a scheduled opening month, April.

For you non-history buffs out there, Kettle Hill was captured by Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders in a battle on July 1, 1898.  The restaurant will be themed around America in the early 1900s.

Richard Gorelick of The Baltimore Sun reports that Dempsey will serve in an “ambassadorial role” with fellow owners Desmond Reilly and Kristopher Karr.

Still no confirmation on whether Rick Dempsey’s Home Run Holiday album will play on loop at Kettle Hill.  I would assume the Demper is still negotiating that one with Reilly and Karr.

“Kettle Hill will open in the old Babalu space in Power Plant Live,” according to Gorelick and they are “moving toward an April opening day.”
