The restaurant soon to be formerly known as Pabu will continue to serve Japanese food (and Japanese booze), according to an article by Baltimore Business Journal‘s Sarah Meehan. Still, the name and menu are going to change. That ends some of the suspense regarding the fate of Pabu and Lamill, the two Four Seasons eateries that are closing this week, to be reopened under the control of Alex Smith and George Aligeorgas, who run nearby Ouzo Bay.

Smith said that the Pabu replacement, to open by September, will focus on bigger entrees and strive for a “fine dining experience.” The bar will be renovated, but Smith hopes to keep the impressive alcohol list.

A new cafe will open in Lamill’s place early next week. The new spot will double the capacity of Lamill and feature more made-to-order items in an effort to bring “it up to the Four Seasons standard, which is very nice quality, very high-end.” Ouch. That’s some kind of oblique insult aimed at Lamill.
