Tony Foreman is our esteemed wine guru, consulting on his favorite vintners and vintages. Best known throughout Baltimore as a successful restaurateur and wine director, he is co-owner and founder of Bar Vasquez, Charleston, Cinghiale, and Petit Louis Bistros.
Foreman personally researched and developed the wine list for each restaurant and has been instrumental in menu development as well. His front of house staff is renowned for being thoughtful and unobtrusive, recognized time and again for superior service. The combined staff of over 300 employees has been a major driving force in putting Baltimore on the map in the world of fine wines and dining.
Foreman’s first venture was Savannah, which he started with his business partner Chef Cindy Wolf. It opened in Baltimore’s Fells Point in 1995. Savannah transitioned to a new location re-opening to what is now Charleston, Baltimore’s premier fine dining establishment and the only Forbes Four Star rated property in the entire state of Maryland. Petit Louis Bistro, a French restaurant in Baltimore’s Roland Park was Foreman’s next creation. Petit Louis is inspired, amongst others, by Bistro L’ami Louis in Paris and creates a convivial neighborhood restaurant renowned for its authenticity and superior service.
In November 2001, Bin604 was added to the portfolio; an innovative wine shop in downtown Baltimore, that was named Best New Wine Shop in the Country by Food and Wine magazine in 2002.
