An early morning fire on The Avenue damaged a much-loved Hampden restaurant, but the owner said it would return.
According to the AP, a fire started in the kitchen of Holy Frijoles just before 2 a.m. Owner Geoffrey Danek told the Baltimore Sun that the restaurant would normally be open at that time, but it closed early. In a Facebook post, Danek said no one was injured in the one-alarm blaze.
In addition to Mexican food, Holy Frijoles’ relaxed atmosphere makes it an inviting neighborhood hangout. The pinball machines in the back were another added attraction. Danek said the 20-year-old restaurant would return.
“We’ve made it this far and I’m ready to spend the next 20 years with you Baltimore,” he wrote.
