The vacant Canton property where Yellow Dog Tavern operated from 2007 until its sudden closing last spring will be turned into an Asian fusion/Vietnamese restaurant.
The sale of the two-story commercial building at the corner of Potomac and Foster streets is scheduled for settlement on Tuesday, according to Amy Pelleteir, the agent representing the buyer, Linh Ha.
Pelletier said that Ha, who goes by the name Su Su, will be developing the restaurant with her sister, who has owned restaurants in Vietnam and Germany. There are no plans for extensive renovations to the property, but the owner is planning to furnish the interior with decor she is importing from Vietnam, Pelletier said.
At its meeting on Thursday, the board of liquor license commissioners for Baltimore City approved the liquor license transfer for the new restaurant, whose name has not been decided. The board also approved a license transfer at another vacant Canton restaurant property, the former Geckos on Fleet Street. The new restaurant will operate as Fleet Street Tavern, which is not to be confused with Fleet Street Kitchen or Fleet Street Market.
Geckos, a popular neighborhood Mexican restaurant, closed in September after 14 years.
