Leaders of Baltimore’s Chinatown Collective had what they thought was a promising idea for their second annual Charm City Night Market, coming up on Sept. 21.

They identified a prominent building where they envisioned painting a large mural, hoping to help draw people to the West Side district where the event will take place. The building owner agreed to it. Best of all, an artist collective from Washington D.C. offered to paint it for free.

But it’s not happening–not this year, at least.

Months after owners decide to keep restaurant, The Dizz is closing, up for sale

Diners were relieved in April to learn the owners of The Dizz, a beloved corner restaurant in Remington, had ditched plans to put the eatery and building on the market.

Now, the restaurant is shutting down. A post on The Dizz’s Facebook page signed by co-owner Thomas L. Basta Jr. said the business is closed as of today.

“[W]e would like to thank all our wonderfully [sic] customers for your support over the years and to all of our employees,” the post said.

Michael S. Levine, who previously served as the listing agent when The Dizz was put up for sale in 2018, said the building and business are once again on the market.
