FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- One of celebrity chef Bryan Voltaggio's restaurants has closed in Frederick after two years in operation.

The Frederick News-Post ( ) reports the Lunchbox restaurant had its last day on Nov. 23. Voltaggio's restaurants that remain include Volt and Family Meal in Frederick and Range in Washington.

Voltaggio says he plans to open Lunchbox again in a more densely populated area in the future. He says all his restaurants are doing well.

Lunchbox opened in December 2011 along Carroll Creek in downtown Frederick. But it was never intended to be a long-term institution.

In an email, Voltaggio writes that he signed a short-term lease for the space. Lunchbox was opened to bridge the gap between when Volt stopped serving lunch during the week and while Family Meal was still under construction.
