The downtown Baltimore lunch crowd can look forward to two new fast-food spots opening in May -- Sushi Express and Crazy Kabobs. The new vendors will fill empty space in the food court at The Gallery mall across East Pratt Street from Harborplace.

As The Baltimore Business Journal reported Tuesday, the openings are part of changes that also include Saladworks closing about a month ago. Mall owner General Growth Properties is working on filling that spot to boost the seven-vendor food court’s occupancy from its current 85 percent, said General Growth spokesman Greg Harris.

At Harborplace, the plans for a new  and expanded food hall on the first level of the Light Street Pavilion are still on track, Harris said. The new eateries should open by the third week of June, including the return of Johnny Rockets across from the food court and new food court tenants Subway, Chicken Now and China Max.
