On Monday, Joe DiPasquale, owner of DiPasquale’s Italian Marketplace in Highlandtown, announced its plan to open a second location, but smaller market in Federal Hill.
The new market and eatery at 500 Harborview Drive will feature an array of baked goods, pastas, meats and cheeses, but at a reduced selection than what is sold at the original location. It will also feature a more modern ambience and full service-bar, making it unique and more suitable for the HarborView community.
Following the opening inspection, which is expected to take place within the next week, the market will open to the public. DiPasquale is aiming for a May 10 opening, if all goes according to plan.
The new flagship location will provide indoor seating for 40 patrons and outdoor seating for when it’s simply too beautiful to dine inside. The market will open daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., with the possibility of hours being extended during the summer season.
