What happened to Volt?
Like everybody else in the world, Bryan’s business was also severely impacted by the ongoing coronavirus.
One of Bryan’s most popular restaurants, Volt, had to be shut down in March due to the pandemic. The establishment had first opened in 2008 on North Market Street, Frederick, Maryland.
The chef announced that Volt would be reopening as a new and more approachable eatery.
Volt reopened in October 2021 at the same spot and was named Thacher & Rye.
Talking about the changes incorporated in his restaurant, Bryan told the Frederick News-Post that the new place is “more of an everyday, neighborhood restaurant” compared to its predecessor.
