Phillips Seafood alerted state regulators Friday that it would lay off 120 workers as part of its move from Harborplace, but the restaurant plans to hire back as many of those employees as it can when it reopens in its new Inner Harbor location several weeks later.

Phillips, the last remaining original tenant at Harborplace, is closing that Baltimore restaurant Sept. 15. It expects to reopen within six weeks at the former ESPN Zone space at Power Plant, it told the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. The company did not return a call seeking comment.
