Trapeze (Maple Lawn) Closed??

Fulton Foodie | Nov 2, 200810:58 AM

Rumor surfaced this week that Trapeze might we went last night for dinner to get another bowl of Crisfield Seafood Stew. Engaged a young manager-type in a conversation and he said that they were "talking about it". Supposedly the owners, in an attempt to reduce cost, tried to get the landlord to "take back some space" - the restaurant is so big.
Dinner was slightly different - and we were definitely looking for "signs". The bread was not the suberb multigrain stuff they usually serve. The stew (off of the bar menu) was a smaller portion than in the past. Plenty of patrons in the restaurant and bar.
Got a call this morning from a friend who is connected to one of the employees - and the employee had just received the call that Trapeze closed after last night. Can anyone verify????
This is a shame for eaters in Howard County...the food was reliably good, it was a great "neighborhood place" and much more reasonable (and better service) than the Oz. Chophouse across the street. No doubt the economy has factored into this in a big way. The upscale development surrounding the retail center has certainly slowed down....although Trapeze surely drew from a larger radius.
Same people own the Bluestone in Timonium....maybe they'd consider finding a smaller place to open up in the Howard County environs when things get better...we can only hope!
