Fans of the New Orleans Kitchen and French Market in Severn have been waiting patiently for the restaurant to re-open after a holiday break.
They may have to keep waiting for their dose of po' boys and bread pudding.
Restaurant officials said this week that they will not open the doors again until they have secured another partner to assist in growing the business. The restaurant closed in December, explaining that owners were simply spending the holidays with family in New Orleans.
"We know that a lot of you are loyal patrons at our little restaurant and must be wondering when we are planning to reopen," officials said on the restaurant Facebook page. "As of yet, we haven't been able set a date."
The restaurant said it was seeking an additional partner to "assist us in better moving forward."
"Our plans for a Grand Opening include extending our menu incorporating additional choices from our many New Orleans family recipes," restaurant officials said. "We will expand and extend our catering services using our delicious recipes and years of experience to both businesses and families."
The restaurant said anyone interested in partnering with the business can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
