Chicken Rico adding downtown location

The operators of Chicken Rico in Highlandtown are opening a second Baltimore location at 55 Market Place.

Chicken Rico will open in the long-vacant space in The Shops at Harbor Park that was formerly Baja Beach Club, a nightclub that closed in 2008.

The downtown location could be open as early as September, according to Fernando Sanchez, one of the principals in Chicken Rico, which has additional locations in Langley Park and Waldorf.

Best known for its Peruvian-style charbroiled chicken, Chicken Rico has been a perennial cheap-eats favorites in Baltimore since its opening on Eastern Avenue in 2004.
