The latest word is that the Indian restaurant Ananda will open in Maple Lawn in the near future.
That's what the Maple Lawn developer told folks at a race in the neighborhood over the weekend. There was that weird point last week where the new restaurant building seemed to be listed for rent. But the developer said the Indian restaurant would open, and the liquor board is still scheduled to consider Ananda's license on February 11.
In other news, Mission BBQ is coming to Columbia. I have that from a reliable source, although I didn't take notes so now I'm not 100% sure of the location. Mission is a local chain with locations around Baltimore. They're replacing something that closed recently.
Buffalo Wild Wings is replacing the Don Pablo that closed near the Target off Rte 175. Am I right that a Chicken Out closed in Columbia, maybe on the back side of that same Target? My faulty memory says the Mission BBQ is replacing a Chicken Out. Maybe someone knows the story or the timing.
