Hampden Loses Dogwood Restaurant Suddenly

It’s official: Dogwood Restaurant has closed for good. Like that! (I just snapped my fingers.) The owners said they only made the decision this weekend, implying that the staff couldn’t have had much notice regarding their sudden unemployment. The owners blamed the closing on “three very poor weeks of revenue.”

On my very first trip to Dogwood, I only tasted the water. After looking at the prices on the menu we got embarrassed and left. But it entered my list of places to suggest to well-off friends, and I have since eaten there on someone else’s tab. The food was delicious and everyone was very friendly.

Dogwood’s unique commitment to “second-chance” employment enabled the restaurant owners to receive a grant from the Baltimore Community Foundation Fellowship Program.  The restaurant closed before for a time, but it sounds like this time it’s really for good.

    What a shame. I’ve eaten there a few times and have found it lovely.

    Hmmm, “three very bad weeks of revenue” sounds like a normal event in the restaurant business. There are good months, and bad months, and if you are good the former outnumber the latter. But if their finances were that close to the edge, somebody was not on top of things.
    Too bad; it sounds like the city lost a good eating place.
