A new sign, replacing the old Griffin's Grill sign, has been erected at the site of the new Mother's, now dubbed Mother's Peninsula Grill.
Mother's Federal Hill Grille has a popular location in Baltimore, known for its Purple Patio, which caters to Baltimore Ravens fans. In July, restaurant owner Dave Rather announced plans to locate another branch on Ritchie Highway in Arnold, where he said he believes the market is ripe for a restaurant like Mother's.
"We really like the area—it's close to home, and we feel it's a good demographic. There's not a lot of night life there, so we think we can really add to it," he said.
The former Griffin's Grill is being renovated and modified. Among the changes will be the stone facade on the exterior, a new carpet and hardwood floors, new windows and a new, vaulted ceiling for the dining area, Rather said.
Mother's is now hiring in preparation for its second location. For more information, visit the restaurant's official website.
