Townhouse Kitchen + Bar, which opened in Harbor East the spring of 2012, was the first entry into the Baltimore market for the Chicago-area Restaurants-America group, a multi-concept restaurant operator.

On Friday, the restaurant's website was down for maintenance and calls placed to its published phone number were redericted to an unspecified extension.

Signs that have been taped to its doors since Wednesday say simply "Townhouse Kitchen + Bar is Closed Today."

Still, it is not clear if the Harbor East restaurant, which occupies a retail space in the Eden Building, is closed permanently.

Calls made to Restaurants-America were not returned.

A representative for Artios Retail, the Bel Air-based firm that leases retail space in the Eden Building, directed questions to lawyer Roger Sullivan. Sullivan, whose office is in Bel Air, did not return calls or emails seeking comment.

Last year, Restaurants-America closed three of its restaurants in Dallas, including a Townhouse Kitchen + Bar, within days of each other without warning or explanation, according to reporting by the Dallas Business Journal.
