InPLACE Design Creates Dual-Concept Renovation for Baltimore Restaurateur

by Katie Lee

Baltimore — Construction is underway on the new restaurant fit-out of Wayward Smokehouse and Curious Oyster located at The Avenue at White Marsh in Baltimore. The project, a contemporary dual-concept restaurant and bar is a renovation of an existing building.

The renovation of the former Don Pablo’s Mexican Restaurant includes extensive modifications to the exterior and interior of the building, creating a unique brand identity for each restaurant. Both restaurants blur the line between outdoor and indoor with garage doors and accordion windows that lead to outdoor dining areas.

According to Dustin Watson of inPLACE Design, the architect of record, Wayward’s design reflects rustic imaging focused around the fire and the soulful recipes behind the food. The project uses the ancient Japanese technique called Shou Sugi Ban as a siding material. The charred surface of Wayward BBQ, representative of the process of barbecuing, contrasts with clean un-charred wood that highlights the outdoor dining.

Curious Oyster’s design looks toward the Chesapeake Bay for its influences with classic rustic charm and a contemporary approach.

“We are excited to announce our expansion to Baltimore County with Wayward Smokehouse and The Curious Oyster,” says a spokesperson for Wayward Smokehouse. “We look forward to sharing our passion for authentic style Texas BBQ coupled with fresh sustainable regional seafood in our newest endeavor The Curious Oyster. Our mission is simple: through elevated hospitality, we create unique brands that provide memorable experiences for our valued guests.”
