Atwater's headed to Science and Technology Park at Johns Hopkins

Atwater's will open a restaurant at the Science + Technology Park at Johns Hopkins, an 88-acre mixed-use science campus under development in Baltimore's Middle East neighborhood. 

Atwater’s will take over the space in the Rangos Building that had been Cuban Revolution, which closed late last year. Opened in February 2013, Cuban Revolution was the first new restaurant to open in the emerging district, which is being developed by the Forest City-New East Baltimore Partnership.  

The new restaurant will have its formal opening in early October but will be open for business sometime in mid-September, according to a spokesman for the Forest City Enterprises, Inc.

This will be the sixth location for Ned Atwater's Catonsville-based group of cafes and markets. Other locations are in Catonsville and at The Shops at Kenilworth, Belvedere Square, the Bare Hills Retail Center and The Shops at Canton Crossing.

Atwater said that the Science + Technology Park is an attractive location.

"There is a lot of brain power there. It seems like a great place to be around," Atwater said. "They wanted someone to come in with healthy food. They made a sincere effort to get someone like us."

The East Baltimore location will have indoor seating for 75 and outdoor seating for 20. At first the restaurant will serve brekfast and lunch on weekdays, but may add dinner and weekend hours depending on demand, Atwater said.
