In Bloom restaurant closes in South Baltimore

Eight months after rebranding, In Bloom has closed its doors in South Baltimore.

The restaurant at 1444 Light St. is closed until further notice, according to messages on its website and phone line.

Baltimore’s restaurant industry is as competitive as it’s ever been — and it’s putting some eateries out of business.

"Changes coming, so In Bloom will be closed until further notice. We apologize for any inconvenience. Private [p]arties that have been booked will still be honored," the restaurant's website reads.

A message on the restaurant's voicemail conveys a similar sentiment: "We're currently undergoing a transition and are closed for dinner and brunch service."

Husband-and-wife owners Kevin Perry and Cecilia Benalcazar have owned the restaurant since 2012, when it first opened as Liv2Eat. That changed in August, when a makeover and a new name led to the birth of In Bloom as the owners looked to breathe new life into the restaurant.

Blooming Deli is expected to open within the next week, serving catered lunches, as well as breakfast and lunch for sit-in and carry-out customers.

Shortly after the rebrand, they opened Blooming Deli next door at 1448 Light St. Blooming Deli remains open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Benalcazar was not immediately available to comment.
