The Greene Turtle at McHenry Row Accepts Buyout, Will Close at the End of March

| March 17, 2017 | 1 Comments

The Greene Turtle at McHenry Row has accepted a buyout and will close at the end of the month. The Greene Turtle, which has 22 locations in Maryland, was an original tenant of McHenry Row when it opened in 2012.

The Greene Turtle released the following statement:

The Greene Turtle is closing its McHenry Row restaurant at 1606 Whetstone Way, effective March 31. The corporately owned restaurant opened in February 2012. We have been proud of the opportunity to serve residents and visitors at McHenry Row over the past five years. However, we have accepted an offer to vacate the space from the landlord/developer, who is making other plans for this retail location.

We are exploring the possibility of opening another site in the area. In the meantime, we invite Greene Turtle fans to visit our five other restaurants in the Baltimore area, located in Fells Point, Hunt Valley, Owings Mills, Towson and White Marsh, any of our 22 other locations in Maryland, or our additional restaurants in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, West Virginia and Washington, D.C. McHenry Row-based members of the GT Mug Club can collect their Greene Turtle mugs at the restaurant anytime before the close of business on March 31; their membership will be honored at any of our 45 other locations.

We wish to express our deep appreciation to the McHenry Row community for their support, and we look forward to welcoming them into one of our other locations soon.

The Greene Turtle at McHenry Row downsized in 2015 from its original 7,000 sq. ft. space when Piaza opened its 2,000 sq. ft. location in a space that was formerly part of The Greene Turtle’s restaurant. Piaza also recently accepted a buyout and will close on March 24th. Piaza owner David Crocetti told that he was not looking to sell but this “attractive opportunity” presented itself.

Sarah Slosson of 28 Walker, McHenry Row’s owner, told that the new operator of the spaces will be announced in the next couple of weeks.
