Cecilia Benalcazar and Kevin Perry will close their Federal Hill restaurant, Liv2Eat, restructure and reopen it under a new name, with the assistance of another culinary couple.
The husband and wife team opened the restaurant at 1444 Light Street five years ago. The menu offered seasonal made-from-scratch comfort foods and a warm atmosphere for individuals and families.
The couple will partner with Cyrus and Angela Keefer to open the new restaurant, dubbed In Bloom. Cyrus Keefer and Perry worked together at Sotto Sopra.
The new eatery will feature appetizers, small plates, ranging in price from $6 to $14 and entrees in the mid-$20s. Some of the dishes from Liv2Eat will be included in the menu, including chocolate chip cookies and risotto fritters.
In Bloom will open starting August 30 from Tuesday through Sunday.
