Cunningham’s restaurant announced today that it will undergo a major rehaul this spring changing its name, look, and menu. Effective today, Cunningham’s, the restaurant, located at 1 Olympic Place in downtown Towson, will close and begin renovations to create a redesigned and rebranded restaurant.
Cunningham’s Cafe, located on the lower level, will remain open during renovations with a slight interruption to accommodate an expansion.
Patrick Sutton of Patrick Sutton Associates will design the new restaurant and it will feature an expanded bar and an intimate dining space. Executive Chef Jay Rohlfing will create a new menu, continuing to use fresh and locally sourced ingredients.
“Towson has changed over the past six years, and as you look around at the many development projects underway, I saw this as a unique opportunity to build on the success we have enjoyed at Cunningham’s while re-envisioning a new concept and new brand that meets the needs of the growing Towson community,” said Chef Rohlfing in a statement.
Cunningham’s cafe, which offers sandwiches, salads, artisanal coffees, baked goods and more, has become one of the most popular locally-owned eateries in Towson. The owners will double the size of the current location by enclosing the outdoor area for year-round seating.
The space also houses Cunningham’s Bakery, a wholesale bread and pastry division that provides baked goods to dozens of restaurants and grocers in the region. It will remain open and operational during the renovations.
Cunningham’s opened in November 2013, and Chef Rohlfing has been executive chef since 2016.
