As part of its March 20 Baltimore grand opening buzz, the spicy, flame broiled chicken restaurant Nando’s Peri-Peri will be giving away free meals via Facebook.
The “Afro-Portuguese” restaurant that opened a franchise in Gambrills in December, will expand to Baltimore this month with a new eatery at 421 W. Baltimore St, near the University of Maryland Baltimore and the Hippodrome Theatre. The very first Nando’s opened in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1987.
Beginning March 18, free Nando’s meals will be offered based on a social media invitation and confirmed reservation time. Those seeking a chicken dinner are directed to the Nando’s Peri-Peri Facebook page for further instruction.
The restaurant is seeking a liquor license from the city’s Liquor Board this month.
Burton Heiss, CEO of Nando’s Peri-Peri USA, said in a statement: “We’ve been receiving high volumes of requests from our customers to open a Baltimore location, and downtown Baltimore is a young, fun market that we believe will quickly embrace the Nando’s brand and food.”
