Other Reviewer Richard sent me a list of other forgotten restaurants, one of which was the Spice Company in the Colonnade. He's right, which is probably one of the reasons it closed last Wednesday. (His other nominations were Copra and Robert Oliver.)
Joe Chen, an owner of the Moulin de Paris French Bakery in Severna Park, will be opening a new restaurant there. ...
Chen has big plans for the Spice Company space. It will be a Euro-Asian restaurant, a "boutique bistro," and a wine bar. He plans a soft opening March 1, with a grand opening April 2.
Don't hold your breath; he says there's a lot of work to be done.
Alizee will have a sushi chef, and a specialty will be French-sushi fusion. (Hey, I just report this stuff.) Entrees will be priced from $18 to $65. When I asked what you would get for your $65, he said, "Something with foie gras."
Alizee's problem will be the same as the Spice Company's, unless something changes: With no outdoor signage, it risks becoming another forgotten restaurant.
