About Us

In everything we do, Ampersea aims to bring to life an authentic, modern Maryland dining experience.

From working with local Maryland farms, craft brewers, and winemakers to supporting the community through the exciting programs of Living Classrooms, like Project SERVE and Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students (B.U.G.S), we believe a dining experience is about bringing family, friends, and a community together. Ampersea is a place where people can connect over a well-crafted drink and a meal that is locally grown and cooked from scratch. We hope you'll join us to enjoy this beautiful waterfront dining experience!

Chef Nelson Morton

In the kitchen, Chef Nelson Morton puts a modern spin on Maryland classics using local ingredients from mid-atlantic purveyors alongside ingredients grown in the Living Classrooms B.U.G.S greenhouse. Having cooked most of his life, Chef Morton follows in his mother’s footsteps as an executive chef. He prides himself on integrating classic French culinary techniques with a soulful culinary palate in his cooking. We hope you can join us to enjoy his delicious Maryland fare.
