The Local Fry will close its Federal Hill location this year, after four years of serving specialty fries, rice bowls, wings and banh mi sandwiches on East Cross Street.

Elizabeth and Kevin Irish, the restaurant’s culinary team, plan to keep open the restaurant’s other location at The Rotunda in Hampden and “combine resources from both businesses,” the restaurant announced on Facebook on Saturday.

It’s not clear when its last day in Federal Hill will be — or whether that location is already permanently closed. The voice mail recording at the Federal Hill location said the restaurant was closed for the holidays and referred callers to the Rotunda location, at 711 W 40th St. The owners did not respond to a message left Sunday at The Rotunda.
