Three New Restaraunts for Frederick

Rex’s Downtown Grill – according to the FNP, Rex’s will open within weeks at the old The Deli spot on Patrick Street and will feature “sandwiches, salads, milkshakes, smoothies, draft beer, local craft beers.”

Market Street Fusion – also in from the same FNP article, Market Street Fusion will open in the old Griff’s spot on Market St, and feature “burgers and other items but will focus on seafood, sometimes with a French influence.”

The Golden Beak – is opening in the old Quiznos spot on 40 and features the “freshest / most tasteful rotisserie chicken and side dishes at an affordable price point.” Thanks to Diane and BK for the info on this one.




I got a sneak peek of Smashburger today. It was really good. Of the chain fast casual burger places in the area (e.g. 5 Guys, Elevation Burger) it’s the best. The best burger in town still goes to Wags though.
