Julianna’s Restaurant (Website) in College Park has closed.

Jim Lakey, owner of Gallery on the Edge (Facebook), has signed a lease that includes Annabelle Hart and Julianna’s, to open his new restaurant concept, Caliente.

According to the College Park Community Paper, Caliente will be part of a hybrid furnishings and gift store called The Shoppes of College Park, with a focus on Cuban food.

Lakey hopes to open Caliente and The Shoppes by early July of this year.

  1. Bravo! About time! Pls…Pls no more Italian restaurants!
    What is going in the old Hangar location? Thank You!☺

  2. Glad to hear something new going in Julianna’s. Where is Annabel Hart going?

  3. My husband and I received a $100 gift card to Julian’s as a wedding present; I really hope the Owner lets us use the gift At Cj’s Italian Kitchen or the new restaurant. I am pending a return call back this time.

  4. Julianna’s was good… but the neighborhood isn’t going to suffer too much with one less Italian place.
