WASHINGTON COUNTY, Md.—Peruvian-American fusion restaurant Sardi’s Chicken is pecking away to open inside the former Pizza Hut at 100 Railway Lane in Hagerstown.
Sardi’s Chicken of Hagerstown LLC applied for a permit to remodel the hut-shaped building across from Massey’s Hyundai and Kmart, according to Washington County building records.
Beltsville-based Sardi’s started in 2008 and now has 10 Maryland locations, including one in Frederick plus one Pennsylvania restaurant in Philadelphia.
The menu includes chicken with Peruvian spikes, beef short ribs, marinated lamb chops, skirt steak, plantains and more. It’s a mix of Peruvian food, Southern food and as common with many modern Peruvian dishes, you’ll find a Chinese influence thanks to the Chinese immigration that Peru experiences. The Chinese-Peruvian dishes always make for a flavorful combination.
The restaurant’s catering business also catered President Barack Obama’s inaugural ball, according to the Sardi’s website.
An opening date has not been announced.
