Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us today about this. Your kind words and support are what keeps us going. If anyone has footage in the area at around 12:50 am - it was a white Nissan Altima (probably 2018) - we need the plate number."
WMAR obtained video of the vehicle in question from the restaurant's owner.
"They basically took out 2/3 of our parklet and the car Lind was just out of control, came Into the Parklet almost went onto the curb, veered out and almost hit the parts car there and then went back out to Cross Street," said owner Anna Leventis.
As for the damage, Laventis said she plans to rebuild.
"A lot of hard work went into making it what it was before and that's my plan to do it again," she said. "The support I've received from neighbors has been wonderful."
Leventis said the best way people can help support the restaurant during this time is to continue ordering through carryout. For more information on SOBO Cafe visit
