The Towson restaurant Blue Grotto, which only opened earlier this year, has closed. I reviewed the restaurant for our July issue and had a decent meal there (the focus was Mediterranean and Greek cuisine), though the service was below par.
When I called the restaurant today, the man who answered said they were clearing out the space as we spoke. He said it was closing for various reasons, but he didn’t elaborate.
It’s too bad. The restaurant, which was once a Sunny Surplus store, offered an upscale vibe for Towson. There are no plans for the space to date. First, VIN folded; then Paolo’s; now this. But Cafe Troia seems to be thriving in their new spot—a positive for the area.
