Fast-Casual Bobby Flay Restaurant a Highlight
Towson, Maryland (October 10, 2013) – Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, the Cordish Companies and Heritage Properties announced four new restaurants joining Cinemark Theaters in the new Towson Square entertainment center in downtown Towson.
Bobby's Burger Palace, Bonefish Grill, BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse and Hanabi Japanese Restaurant join the $85 million project on Joppa Road between Delaware and Virginia Avenues.
These best-in-class restaurants join the previously announced 15-screen Cinemark Theater, Nando's Peri-Peri, La Tagliatella and On the Border Mexican Grill and Cantina.
"Towson Square is bringing quality entertainment and new international restaurant choices to the lively transformation of downtown Towson," said Kamenetz. "It is truly Towson's time. Over $770 million in new offices, luxury apartments, shops and restaurants are completed, under construction or in development in downtown Towson."
Towson Square's movie theaters, restaurants and an 850-space parking garage are on track to open late summer or early fall 2014.

Towson Square is projected to create 1,530 jobs, including 660 construction jobs and 870 permanent jobs once the theaters and restaurants open.
