Bagby Pizza Co. is part of Bagby Restaurant Group, which also owns Cunningham’s in Towson. The restaurant group, owned by Smith’s family, isn’t planning any changes to that restaurant and cafe, Smith said.
As for the Bagby Pizza space in Harbor East, Smith said Atlas Restaurant Group, which owns a number of Harbor East restaurants, plans to open a new spot there.
Alex Smith, Blake Smith’s cousin who owns Atlas Restaurant Group, took over two Bagby Restaurant Group concepts in Harbor East last year, transforming Fleet Street Kitchen and Ten Ten American Bistro into Tagliata and the Elk Room, respectively.
“We’ve pretty much turned the reins over to Alex downtown,” Smith said. “It’s going to just go better with his current concepts there.”
