Unexpected quality in a medium-priced restaurant. Our theory is that the “medium-priced” restaurants in this country are not very good and if we are right, there is a fantastic business opportunity in that theory.
1608 Crafthouse is a contemporary, casual, “farm to table” restaurant featuring regional Southern cuisine with an emphasis placed on the bounty of the Mid-Atlantic region.
The theme and decor capture the relaxed casual feeling of the Chesapeake Bay/Shore drive area. Featuring a scratch kitchen 1608 will offer a competitive price point for entrees, burgers, appetizers, soups and salads.
