Baltimore native to open Easy Like Sunday for brunch, lunch by next spring – Baltimore Sun

Easy Like Sunday, a restaurant specializing in breakfast and lunch, will set up shop in the village of Cross Keys next spring.

Caves Valley Partners, owner and developer of the retail, residential and office complex in North Baltimore, said Wednesday it signed a lease with restaurant owners for the 2,700 square foot space where Village Square Cafe recently closed.

The restaurant plans to serve breakfast, lunch, and brunch, with an emphasis on local ingredients and gourmet coffees.

“We love brunch,” Sean MacCuish, the restaurant’s owner with his wife, Anna, said in an announcement.

The owners, who also host an Easy Like Sunday in Charlotte, North Carolina, expect the menu to include items such as shrimp and grits, lemon and blueberry ricotta pancakes, chicken fried and cornmeal pancakes, plus mimosas and craft cocktails.

“We don’t like to stray too far from the classics, because any breakfast lover can appreciate the simplicity of pancakes and eggs — it’s the use of quality ingredients like caged eggs and maple syrup. 100% maple that makes all the difference. said MacCuish.

Anna MacCuish grew up in Baltimore, where her family operated the G&A restaurant. Sean MacCuish, the head chef, is from San Diego and has worked in the restaurant business since he was 16 years old. The couple plans to move their family to Baltimore.

Arsh Mirmiran, who is leading the redevelopment of Caves Valley, said the tenant will help continue the center’s long-standing tradition as a brunch hangout.

“Easy Like Sunday is a perfect fit for Cross Keys,” Mirmiran said in a statement. “The vibe, local roots and creative menu will draw customers from all over Baltimore.”
