3 Unexpected Restaurants Now Close in Maryland

3 unexpected restaurants now close in Maryland due to a rise in crime in the surrounding area, sources are confirming.

Three of Chef Ashish Alfred’s Baltimore restaurants will be closing following the shooting of a 16-year old down the street from his restaurant.

Duck Duck Goose, Osteria Pizza, and Anchor Tavern, located in Fells Point, a neighborhood in Baltimore, Maryland, will all be temporarily closed.

Chef Alfred posted a statement to his customers explaining the reasoning behind the closures, thanking them for their service, and expressing hope for a future reopening.

“For the past 7 years, you’ve welcomed my staff and me into your lives through our food and service,” the statement began.

Alfred went on to detail why he chose to make Baltimore his home and the “incredible journey” watching the city turn into a “dining Mecca.”

“I’ve stood tall as a champion and a voice for our incredible city and for what I believe to be right.”

“My team and I have served you through riots, floods, a pandemic, and not too long ago one of my most talented waitresses found herself struck by a stray bullet just steps away from Duck Duck Goose after finishing work.”

“Through it all,” Alfred continued.

“I have found a way to create memorable experiences for the hardworking people of this city and for those who come to visit.”

“However, given the recent events in Fells Point, I feel it’s in the best interest of my businesses, my clients, and the incredibly hardworking people on my team for us to simply ‘press pause’ briefly while the city works to remedy the safety concerns of Baltimore so we can once again feel at ease.”

Alred ended the statement by expressing his optimism for the future, along with the staff’s eagerness to get back to work.

“We cannot wait to serve you again, Baltimore.”

An unexpected restaurant now abruptly closes 7 locations in one state after revealing plans to shutter a total of 36.

TGI Fridays is closing a total of seven restaurants in one state as part of the company’s ongoing growth strategy.

This comes after the chain abruptly closed 36 locations across 12 states in at the beginning of the year, per The-Sun.

The restaurant chain will pull the plug on seven locations across the state of New Jersey in the coming weeks.

Today, Fridays will welcome in famished diners at its location in Brick for the final time.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Weldon Spangler, CEO of TGI Fridays earlier this week.

“We are at the helm of a pivotal moment that will allow us to explore boundless advancement, expansion, and innovation to keep delivering ‘That Fridays Feeling’ that our fans know and love.”

Before the closures, TGI Fridays had about 270 US locations, according to the company’s website.

“As part of the store closures, TGI Fridays is offering more than 1,000 transfer opportunities, which represents over 80% of total impacted employees,” the company previously said in a statement.

“Our top priority has always been delivering a superior experience for each and every TGI Fridays guest, and we’ve identified opportunities to optimize and streamline our operations to ensure we are best positioned to meet – and exceed – on that brand promise,” said Ray Risley, US president and chief operating officer, in the release.

Eight other locations were sold to former CEO Ray Blanchette, a longtime stakeholder who will acquire the previously corporate-owned restaurants.

The sale comes as major changes have been made to the brand’s leadership, including the news of Weldon Spangler being made CEO.

“As we continue along our path of transformation to revitalize the Fridays brand and implement a long-term growth strategy, we see a bright future for TGI Fridays,” said Spangler in a statement.
