Reader: Just When I Was Getting Hooked, Glaze Closes!
The notorious Red Dragon oven at Glaze.
Baum has gone through several incarnations since it first opened on Capitol Hill as a bakery specializing in Japanese baum cakes. It morphed into a bakery/cafe, then a sushi bar/bakery, then back to a bakery/cafe. But the current incarnation of Baum will close at 6 p.m. today, and the fiery Red Dragon oven is already cooling. Says Christina:
What! Just when I was getting hooked!
But there could be good news for Baum fans, because this note is posted on the Baum website: “Although we’re sad that this chapter is ending, we are excited for the new challenges to come. We hope that you will join us on that journey.”
