HarborQue BBQ & Catering
will be serving its Carolina-style pit BBQ in a new, larger location in Federal Hill early next month.
The restaurant will move to 1125 S. Charles St., the former spot of Kirby’s Szechuan if it gets its beer and wine liquor license approved Sept.12.
Owner Kelley Stewart says she hopes the new spot will bring her more business by putting her closer to sports fans attending games at M&T Bank Stadium and Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
“I like the fact that it’s right in Federal Hill. We’ll gain more exposure.”
The new spot will seat 75 inside and another 20 outside, versus 50 seats at the current spot.
Developers planning a retail and apartment project in Locust Point have acquired HarborQue’s current site at 1421 Lawrence St.
Stewart employs 15 at HarborQue and Out of the Blue café, on the corner of Hull and Fort avenues.
HarborQue’s menu items include pulled pork, pit beef and smoked turkey breast. The menu will be more or less the same at the new spot but Stewart says she will add brisket, which is now a special weekly item.
