I'm behind the times here, but the former owners of Blob's Park in Jessup have reopened as the Bavarian Brauhaus in Hanover, taking over the space that had been Gunning's.
This is a German restaurant, and its Facebook page says that it is open for business. Steve gave me a heads up in early September. I'm just getting my in-box under control. Richard Gorelick had written in June about the plans.
In that article, owner Max Eggerl had said there wouldn't be space for the polka dancing that had been a major part of the Blob's Park experience. But the menu on their Web site looks like a broad selection of German and American food from sausages to schnitzels to a crab cake.
(Update: Headline fixed from "Blog's Park" to "Blob's Park." You can see where the blogger's mind lies.)
Has anyone eaten at the Bavarian Brauhaus? How is the food? How is the beer selection? Thanks again to Steve for the tip.
7304 Parkway Drive South
Hanover, MD 21076
NEAR: This is right on the Howard County line. It's basically Rte 103 just off Coca Cola Drive. You can take the Coca Cola Drive exit south from Route 100, then turn left on Rte 103. It's near Timbuktu. If I read Google Maps correctly, the Bavarian Brauhaus is just in Anne Arundel County, but it's the part that I claim.
