Encantada Closes at American Visionary Art Museum, New Café to be Announced Soon

| January 25, 2019 | 0 Comments

Vegetable-centric restaurant Encantada has closed after three and a half years at American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM). AVAM announced the closure yesterday.

Encantada was owned by Baltimore-based couple Robbin and Tanya Haas, who still own two Birotecca locations. They also formerly owned Nickel Taphouse.

“AVAM’s third floor restaurant space was always conceived as an extension of the spirit and visual delights found throughout our museum — literally a place to sit with people you love and ‘digest’ your visitor experience and to have fun immersed in deliciousness,” said AVAM Founder and Director Rebecca Hoffberger in a statement. “We dedicated our cafe to our beloved Baltimore farmer/master whirligig maker Vollis Simpson and his wife Jean — a perfect place to sit, drink, and watch it dance in the wind. We look forward to continue to offer our visitors of all ages a joyful eating experience, to be announced soon. We wish every renewed good health and future success to brilliant restaurant visionary Robbin Haas, along with his wife Tanya.”

Plans for a new operator for the museum’s third-floor café space are in development and will be publicly announced in the next few weeks.
