Vegan Restaurants ‘Liora’ and ‘Double Zero’ Close at the Inner Harbor

| April 26, 2023 | 0 Comments

As first reported by The Baltimore Banner, vegan restaurants Liora and Double Zero at the 414 Light Street apartment tower at the Inner Harbor have both closed. The two restaurants were connected and owned by California-based Matthew Kenney Cuisine (MKC).

The two restaurants opened in July 2021 in a 4,500 sq. ft. space. Double Zero was a pizza restaurant and Liora was a “vegan take on Baltimore cuisine.”

A sign on the front door of both restaurants says the restaurants are temporarily closed, however General Manager Kari Bryan told The Baltimore Banner that they are both “permanently closed.”

The article went on to say:

She added that she and the restaurants’ executive chef hope to open another plant-based concept in the old space without help from Kenney. “It really hurts our hearts to do this,” she said of the closures. “We want to bring something amazing” to the building, she said.

Ramen Utsuke remains the only retail business open at the tower, which opened in 2019.

Light Street Cafe was announced for the building last year, but told they are no longer pursuing the space.
