Nando’s Peri-Peri opened its second Baltimore location in Harbor East.  The new 122-seat location is next door to the Hyatt Place hotel at the corner of South Central and Fleet street.

Known for its flame-grilled, marinated Peri-Peri chicken, the first Nando’s restaurant opened in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa and has since spread to 23 countries and five continents.

Nando’s Peri-Peri made its U.S. debut in 2008 with the opening of a store on 7th Street in Washington’s Chinatown.  There are now 21 restaurants in and around the Washington area including the Baltimore stores and ones in Towson, Arundel Mills, Laurel and Waugh Chapel.

The ancient technique of shou sugi ban is gaining new life as a unique and modern interior and exterior wall cladding. The wood is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed to remove dust and loose debris, and then stained/sealed to create the unique designs you will find in the CHARRED collection.  The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the face & back).
