Two restaurants have closed their doors after short stints in South Baltimore.

Breadbangers, the sandwich spot at 554 E. Fort Ave., closed after about six months in Riverside. And Umi Sake shuttered about a year into business at McHenry Row.

Both spaces have experienced their share of turnover in the last several years.

Breadbangers opened in June, replacing Tuscan Fresh, a sister concept of salad spot Nalley Fresh that lasted only a few months. Breadbangers brought a rock-and-roll vibe to the corner store with sandwiches like the Shrimp Start My Heart and Portobella Some Sugar on Me, plays on popular rock songs.

The restaurant was owned by Bluegrass Tavern partner Brett Marshall.

And Umi Sake, an Asian fusion restaurant at 1702 Whetstone Way, has also shut its doors. Umi Sake opened a year ago, replacing Red Parrot Asian Bistro in the McHenry Row development. The restaurant's original location in Cockeysville is still open.

The owners could not immediately be reached for comment.
