A Baltimore seafood institute is flying into Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

Obrycki’s Crab House and Seafood Restaurant has singed a lease to open a 2,400-square-foot restaurant in the airport’s Concourse D, airport retail development and management company BAA USA announced on Wednesday. The restaurant will be operated by CRC Cleveland.

This will be Obrycki’s second airport unit and its first outside Maryland. The restaurant’s first airport unit opened at Baltimore-Washington International Airport in July 2006.

The airport menu will be scaled-down version of the menu at Obrycki’s original restaurant in Baltimore’s historic Fells Point, featuring quick-to-prepare items such as crab cake sandwiches.

The restaurant is slated to open by March, and Obrycki’s plans to open more restaurants beyond Maryland and Ohio, Obrycki’s owner Cheri Cernak told the Baltimore Business Journal.

“We hope that once Obrycki’s is in two airports we will be more attractive to other prospective airport owners and operators,” said Cernak. “We don’t have a particular city or state in mind, but are open to other opportunities.”

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport is a hub for Continental Airlines and handles more than 11 million passengers annually.

Also on Wednesday, BAA USA signed leases with Cheeburger Cheeburger and Subway to each open 900-square-foot restaurants in Concourse D.
