A New Restaurant is Coming to the Former Cafe Hon Space in Hampden

More than two years after Cafe Hon closed on The Avenue in Hampden, there are signs that a new restaurant may be close to taking its place.

The Baltimore Liquor Board recently posted a notice in the front window of 1000 W. 36th Street, where Cafe Hon operated for 30 years, saying that the board has received an application for a new restaurant license and will hold a public hearing in City Hall sometime “on or after” July 4.

The notice states that the applicant, John Anthony Foreman of PubCo LLC, is seeking a Class “B” Beer, Wine and Liquor license and requesting to provide live entertainment and outdoor table service. A trade name for the new business is pending, the notice states.
