Joe's Crab Shack will open its fourth Maryland restaurant at Hunt Valley Towne Center, the mall's developer, Greenberg Gibbons, said Thursday.
The seafood restaurant will open this fall, adding to locations in Abingdon, Greenbelt and Gaithersburg. The 325-seat restaurant will feature a playground under an enclosed patio and a menu of crab and other seafood dishes.
Earlier this week, Hunt Valley's developer had announced that women's apparel boutique Eilieen Fisher will open its first Baltimore-area store at the mall in September.
In other retail openings, Cycle Gear Inc., the nation's largest chain of motorcycle apparel, accessories and parts, is opening a store in Laurel, with grand opening events in early June.
The store will host a "Support the Ride" night from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 1, with all sale proceeds 10 percent of all sales donated to the American Motorcyclist Association.
"The new Laurel store represents our ongoing commitment to support America's motorcyclists," Dave Bertram, chief executive of Cycle Gear, said in a statement. "Being nearly equidistant between Baltimore and Washington DC, the Laurel store is in prime position to serve vast numbers of riders in urban and suburban regions alike."
