Out…Elevation Burger at Harbor East

Elevation Burger has moved out of Harbor East, where, apparently, the chain could not make ends meet after less than a year.  Perhaps moving to another part of town, where another popular lunch joint with organic and enviro-friendly choices (Ahem, Whole Foods) isn’t already a few steps away, would be a better maneuver.

In…Diablita

Looking for an excuse to ride the new Charm City Circulator?  Well, take a trip to Diablita Cantina on the newly developed section of Central Avenue, just north of Little Italy.  Diablita’s does not appear to be gunning for green business awards, but they do a lot of things right.

For one, the new owners of the space (also of Red Star) have made great use of the historic Holland Tack Factory building with their new Mexican themed restaurant.  By using reclaimed materials to design the restaurant, this section of the once industrial structure is transformed into a comfortable meeting space.

In addition to the thoughtful interior, Diablita’s wins praise for a menu including both meat and meat-less options and, with accommodating chefs on board, they can also provide plant-only tacos, burritos and a signature vegan coconut rice. -All you have to do is ask.

For refreshments, they offer the faved local Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA on draft and American solar powered Anderson Valley Brewing Co. Beer in bottle along with many others.

Last, but not least, Diablita’s margaritas are not the frozen commercial margaritas served in wide bowl glasses with a suckling straw, but each is made fresh with a hand press juicer and served, sans straw, in the perfectly sized cocktail glass.

They told me they were just closing down for renovations, that they would reopen later in the year, what was your source of info for this one? If its just someone noticing the storefront is closed, hopefully they’ll be back!

Their site is the source. They no longer list the Harbor East site. Rumors are that another business has already bought the Harbor East site:

Damn! I was really hoping they’d reopen. I work at Laureate, so the location is like a block from the front door, made pretty sweet lunches, and the vegan burger was pretty rockin. We’ll see if they open another location, apparently the guy who owns the place is loaded. I’m not entirely surprised the place closed though, they had a promotion where people could have as many free hamburgers as they could print out coupons. Not smart when your employees let people walk in with a stack of 20 and say its for their whole office and give them 20 free 2 patty burgers.
