Pabu Izakaya, an Asian restaurant in Harbor East's Four Seasons Hotel, plans to reopen next week after being closed since late January because of water damage.
Audrey Slade, director of public relations for Baltimore's Four Seasons Hotel, said the restaurant will reopen with a party on the evening of March 7. Normal service will resume on March 8.
Slade said the damage was caused by a burst pipe brought on by the recent cold weather. The restaurant originally hoped to reopen in to seven to 10 days, but the repairs took longer than expected.
"We wanted to make sure everything was done properly," Slade said.
The staff at Pabu has been staying busy during the closing, doing pop-up events at Belvedere Square's Shoo-Fly Diner and Artifact Coffee in Hampden.
While no big changes are in store for the menu, Slade said, the restaurant is planning special events and theme nights for the next few weeks to entice diners back to Pabu.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
