Mongolian Grill to Open in Can Company, Five Other Locations

Three local businessman, including a physician, plan to open six create-your-own stir-fry restaurants, the first of which will open in the Can Company this fall.

The partners will invest $350,000 to $550,000 to open each BangBang Mongolian Grill location, says Dr. Shawn Dhillon, who practices internal medicine at Union Memorial Hospital. That makes for a total investment of $2.1 million to $3.3 million for the new businesses.

BangBang Mongolian Grill will replace the former Austin Grill, which closed nearly a year ago at The Can Company. The 4,000-square-foot restaurant will seat 140. Lunch will cost $10 and dinner around $15.

The second Mongolian grill will open at 15752 Annapolis Rd. in the fall. Dhillon expects the remaining four spots to open by the end of next summer. Dhillon and his partners, John Stautzenbach and Bob Bernotas, are scouting locations in Baltimore and Harford Counties, including Hunt Valley, Timonium, and Bel Air. The partners are eyeing strip malls anchored by a grocery store and open-air malls.

Dhillon says his professional focus on managing cardiovascular disease drew him to what he believes is a healthy dining option. Diners at BangBang Mongolian Grill get to choose how much beef, poultry, seafood, vegetables, or noodles are in their dish to suit their dietary needs. Dessert options will include a frozen yogurt bar.

Baltimore's BangBang Mongolian Grill is an affiliate of a restaurant in Iowa.

Last night, I passed a "Coming Soon: Chipotle" sign in the window of one of the empty storefronts in 1209 N. Charles, right next to the Starbucks. They must be anticipating the demand from all the new students. Those two blocks between Mt. Royal and Biddle are now the busiest stretch of Charles Street. The Chiptole will certainly add to that.

This leaves, I believe, just one vacant space left to fill in 1209 N. Charles. There is also a retail space currently being built out on the ground floor of 1201 N. Charles. It looks really nice, so far. I think residents have already started to move into the apartments on the upper floors.

Great news on Anthropologie. Is Express still slated for Harbor East? Between those two and the existing stores, Harbor East should soon reach the point where going out to suburban malls will become unnecessary for downtown residents.

Also, the interior of the Brio Tuscan Grille on Pratt Street is progressing nicely. I'm excited for the added street life brought to Pratt Street by Brio, Starbucks, and Nature's Table. Hopefully, the coming loss of Filene's is resolved quickly.

An entity called Enoteca Crivello has applied for a liquor license for 802 N. Charles Street, the former location of Indigma, which moved across the street. This is the building that housed Donna’s, MyThai, and Indigma before it burned down last year. The repairs are nearing completion. I have heard that Donna’s is returning for sure; Indigma, again, moved across the street; and now this new place, Enoteca Crivello, will open in the old Indigma spot. I am keeping my fingers crossed that MyThai re-opens; it was the most fun and vibrant of Charles Street’s many, many Thai restaurants.

Looks like they may have applied for outdoor table service, as well - something that Indigma did not have.

EDIT: Just finished reading the docket - MyThai is also on the docket requesting a hardship extension for their liquor license, so it looks like they'll be back, as well. Good news.

Agreed!!! This would be such a boon for Pratt St. retail if it happens.

I noticed yesterday that a "Coming Soon" sign for Tutti Frutti is posted in the window of 1209 North Charles Street next to the recently opened Chipotle. The retail space in the adjacent building is all but built out, as well. It looks really good. In total, it looks like there are three or four retail spots still available on that block; although, I imagine the Chick-fil-A that was announced a short while ago for that area will probably end up in one of those spaces.

Actually, according to this article, Pet Valu will take the remaining space in the building. I haven't seen any work taking place on the other spaces, though.

The front entrances of both the Four Seasons and the Legg Mason tower in Harbor East are closed off for construction. The Four Seasons construction is for the new Anthropologie. I know J. Crew and MAC Cosmetics are coming to Harbor East, but I don't think either of them slated for the Legg Mason tower. Anybody know what is going there?

Also, it looks like the new sushi restaurant, Pabu, I think it is called, is close to opening in the Four Seasons

I was wrong. It is the J. Crew going into the Legg Mason tower.

New Greek Restaurant Opening in Harbor East

Opa! Harbor East is getting another new restaurant this summer.

Greek restaurant Ouzo Bay is opening at 1006 Lancaster St., which is the same building that houses Charleston. The 4,000-square-foot restaurant seat 140 inside and 70 outside, according to a liquor license Alexander Smith filed with Baltimore City.

The owners will invest at least $500,000 to open the Ouzo Bay, according to the liquor license application. The restaurant will serve modern Greek specialties, and specialize in fresh seafood.

Harbor East is home to Cinghiale, Arhaus Furniture, White House|Black Market and the Four Seasons Hotel in Baltimore. The area is getting a slew of new retailers this summer, including Anthropologie, J. Crew, Lululemon and MAC Cosmetics. The area and surrounding neighborhood of Fells Point have attracted a number of new eateries within the last year, including Waterfront Kitchen, Wit and Wisdom Tavern, the Inn at the Black Olive and Bond Street Social.

Now that nearly all the spaces on the east side of the 1200 block of North Charles Street are all filled, the west side of the street is filling up, as well. TriBeCa Coffee will at 1210 N. Charles later this year and Ooh La La Cupcakery is nearing completion a few doors down. That side of the block is already home to Aloha Sushi, Sammy's Trattoria, the University Center market, and a few other joints.

just realized that this article belongs in this thread, not the Baltimore Development News thread......





Under Armour may open Harbor East store
Baltimore Business Journal by Jack Lambert, Researcher/Reporter
Date: Thursday, October 4, 2012, 4:11pm EDT - Last Modified: Thursday, October 4, 2012, 4:32pm EDT


Under Armour Inc. may join the likes of J. Crew, Anthropologie and South Moon Under in the city’s posh Harbor East neighborhood.

The Baltimore sportswear maker’s hiring website lists a job opening for a Harbor East store manager. The listing, posted Oct. 1, does not say where the store will be located or when it will open.

Under Armour and the John Paterakis-led Harbor East Development Group team behind the ritzy waterfront neighborhood have not responded to multiple Business Journal requests for comments regarding the store.

Little space sits unleased in Harbor East these days. Anthropologie, J.Crew, Lululemon Athletica and MAC Cosmetics signed on in April for a total of 20,000 square feet. Anthropologie and J.Crew have already opened its stores, while Lululemon is scheduled to open on Oct. 12. One potential location for a retail site could be on the ground level of the Legg Mason tower at 100 International Drive.

J. Crew, Harbor East Marina and Patrick Sutton, a high-end furniture store, currently occupy part of the 53,000 square feet of retail space in the Legg Mason building. Some retail space in the tower remains vacant.

Still unclear is what a location in Harbor East means for Under Armour’s proposed 25,000-square-foot flagship store at its Locust Point headquarters. The plans are part of a proposal by Under Armour (NYSE: UA) to expand the waterfront campus by 400,000 square feet.

The old Donna's spot in Mount Vernon was just plastered with "Coming Soon: Charles Luck Design Studio" signs. www.charlesluck.com

I guess Donna's isn't coming back unless it goes in one of the other spots, but regardless, it'll certainly be missed on that corner, as it has been already.

Somewhere, somebody I know had spoken to Donna and she was not interested in coming back to the location.

I've pieced together that impression, as well. I wonder why she lost interest.

In any event, the Donna's space will be occupied by Charles Luck Studio and the old Indigma space will house a new coffee bar called Dooby's.
