Odenton to Get its Own Po' Boy Restaurant

The Po' Boy Shop and Cafe D'Orleans is one of five new tenants at the Village at Odenton Station.

Enthusiasts of New Orleans cuisine will be getting a new addition in Odenton.

The Po' Boy Shop and Cafe D'Orleans has signed a lease at the Village at Odenton Station, and will fill nearly 3,600 square feet of ground floor retail space.

Patricia Palumbo of Metropolitan Management Company, who helped broker the lease, said the shop is one of five tenants to sign on at the Village in the last month. All of the tenants are in various stages of building out their space or obtaining permits, Palumbo said.

The restaurant would be the second of its kind to open recently in west Anne Arundel County. The New Orleans Kitchen and French Market opened in May on Telegraph Road in Severn and has been well received.

Other new tenants at the Village at Odenton Station include:

  • Odenton Dental Station, LLC (2,356 square feet.)
  • Global Health Pharmacy (1,145 square feet.)
  • Odenton Station Cleaners (1,081 square feet.)
  • A Better You MediSpa, LLC (2,700 square feet.)

The Village at Odenton Station is a mixed-use complex that includes 235 apartments. People have been signing leases at the apartments for several months, and negotiations for more retail leases are ongoing.

The area definately needs more gourmet restaurants but if they hope to survive very long, it must have better prices than the one on Telegraph. You can't charge fine dining prices for a McDonalds atmosphere and last long unless the food is really outstanding. New Orlenas kitchen is good but not that good..

Not impressed so far with the tenants that are filling out that space. No Starbucks or other coffee type shop.

@Joe and George - agree... and for coffee - not the longest hours - but the MARC station has a coffee shop right near the ticket office. They are really great people and have some wonderful treats, too!

Just feel like there could be some better tenants besides the obligatory dry cleaners, oriental nail spa, Subway restaurant, and Chinese restaurant. I can't imagine that there is too much of a market for an independent pharmacy these days...unless they are a front for a marijuana dispensary. That little strip is a perfect location for a Starbucks.

I also think we could use a few more "high end" restaurants. Maybe a wine bar type place? I could also see Trader Joes or MOM's in that center - right there on the corner, in that circular part.

Agree with Joe on the weak retail tenant line-up so far -- not very commuter-oriented. Take issue with George though. I am a big fan of New Orleans Kitchen. Yes, some things are not cheap, but the sandwiches are huge and worth the price. They probably only need to add smaller sandwiches at a lower price point, like they do with their gumbo and jambalaya. As far as atmosphere, one of the best Cajun/Creole joints in DC area for many years was Louisiana Express in Bethesda and it was just a hole in the wall, but always packed.

Where is this located in Odenton??

This is the Village at Odenton Station, near the MARC Station and just a little bit east of the fire hall.

Really weak tenant list already. We now have 5+ pharmacy's within a 2 mile radius and another cleaner place. I was thinking it would be more like the center in Annapolis where Chop House and Gordon Beirsch is or like Waugh Chapel or the Crofton one. Kind of disappointing.....Guess we can hope the other development on Piney Orchard will deliver.

"oriental" Really? :-\

Odenton Station Dental is excited about becoming a part of The Village at Odenton Station in January!
Tim Lemke (Editor) November 28, 2012 at 04:52 PM
Keep in mind, this represents about 20 percent of the retail space at the Village at Odenton Station. So if you're not doing flips over these tenants, there will be more to come over time.
Bob Lowther November 30, 2012 at 12:25 PM
Tim is correct, much more to come!

Hopefully they will have better hours and not be closed for a month or times when people really want to come for a visit!!! I look forward to it.
