Today brings news that the chef and co-owner of the destination restaurant Volt in Frederick is also preparing to open a soup-and-sandwich concept on the city’s Carroll Creek Promenade within a matter of weeks. Voltaggio is calling the casual 30-seat restaurant Lunchbox and promising “fast food done right.”
It will be located in the old La Dolce Vita spot on Carroll Creek.
But wait there’s more:
Voltaggio also has an idea for a diner, yet to be named, that he wants to open on E St. in Frederick in what used to be a car dealership. The restaurant’s due date: March or April.
And what of the North Market Kitchen?
Plans for the $2 million North Market Kitchen, once on hold , are going forward after Frederick’s mayor and Board of Aldermen recently changed the city’s code to allow businesses to break up hefty water and sewage fees into four equal installments. “The first project is becoming the last project” to launch, says Voltaggio, who now hopes to introduce North Market Kitchen in fall or winter of next year.
