Not exactly sure when it happened but Einstein Bros. has closed.

It’s been closed I believe for two maybe even more months. I’m assuming the company that owns that building is planning on renovating it.

Liberty Center quickly backfills restaurant space

 

Even though Cantina Laredo, an upscale Mexican restaurant chain that opened its first Cincinnati-area location at Liberty Center, closed this week, the leasing team for the $250 million mixed-use development has already backfilled the space.

 

Agave & Rye, a taco and tequila restaurant that has grown to two locations, will open a third location in the Cantina Laredo space. The restaurant signed a 10-year lease for the approximately 5,100-square-foot space.

College Hill Japanese gastropub sets opening date

 

A Japanese gastropub from the longtime former chef of Kaze OTR is set to open its doors next week.

 

Kiki will open its doors at 5932 Hamilton Ave. in College Hill on Aug. 28. The gastropub is the latest project by chef Hideki Harada, who opened Kaze in 2013. Harada departed that restaurant to open Kiki in 2017.

 

In the interim, Harada has been hosting pop-up ramen dinners at the Northside Yacht Club on Monday nights. He also helped develop the sushi menu for Kaze after it passed into the ownership of the Thunderdome Restaurant Group.

CROWN REPUBLIC OWNERS PLAN TO OPEN STEAKHOUSE IN FORMER ANCHOR OTR SPACE

 

Crown Republic Gastropub owners, husband-and-wife duo Anthony Sitek (chef) and Haley Nutter-Sitek (general manager), have announced they will expand their reach to Over-the-Rhine with a boutique steakhouse concept in the former Anchor OTR location at the northeast corner of Washington Park, at 1401 Race St., set to debut in October.

 

The to-be-named restaurant will feature steaks by the ounce, plus seafood, frites, and a few staples from their first restaurant, such as handmade pasta. Sitek says they are aiming to provide an accessible perspective on white tablecloth dining.

You can't even get Gold Star north of I-70... why would anyone pick a place that isn't available in 4 of Ohio's 6 biggest metros?

True, but on a list that includes Waffle House and Dunkin Donuts, they probably should have went with Wendy's or at least City BBQ or Penn Station.

It seems like a massive troll. Like, Cincinnati is trolled because the metro obviously prefers Skyline. And the rest of the state is trolled because it's a Cincinnati chili chain (which itself would be controversial) and isn't even available in most of the state.

 

A+ trolling, Food & Wine.

New-to-market chicken salad concept opening in September

 

A new-to-market chicken salad chain will open its first Greater Cincinnati location next month, with plans to open two additional restaurants here later this year.

 

Chicken Salad Chick, which bills itself as the only Southern-inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept in the U.S., announced Wednesday that it will open its second Ohio restaurant on Sept. 10 at 7919 Beechmont Ave. in Anderson Township. The Auburn, Ala.-based chain opened its first Ohio location on June 12 in Westerville. 

 

The Business Courier reported in June that the chain would open a location this fall at Snider Commons shopping center. The opening date for that location is Oct. 1, a spokeswoman told me. She said the fast-growing chain plans to open a third Greater Cincinnati location in Oakley in the fourth quarter of this year.

It's almost like the people who write these "best [x] in every state" articles don't actually know anything about most states and just spend a few minutes googling to find a unique regional food from each one...

Or they do know, and they know that putting Gold Star #1 in Ohio is going to make the rest of Ohio mad because it's exclusive to the Cincinnati region and it's going to make Cincinnati made because it's the worst representation of Cincinnati chili. Gotta get those page views for ad revenue.

Gotta keep track of that stuff in case a dame tries to drag you someplace shitty, tho

 

Like you gotta be ready in case the place gets to charge you $17 for a burger because there's a vegetable bowl there she likes... in the same way ice cream places get to have crappy food because little kids will force you to eat there... or how sports bar salads suck...

Jean-Robert reopens Frenchie Fresh

 

French Master Chef Jean-Robert de Cavel reopened one of his restaurants after it shuttered briefly to move to a new location.

 

De Cavel's Frenchie Fresh announced on April 20 that it was closing at its original Rookwood Exchange location at 3831 Edwards Road. On Aug. 28 it celebrated its grand reopening at 5595 Deerfield Blvd. in Mason's Deerfield Towne Center.

 

Frenchie Fresh first opened at Rookwood in September 2016. It was a more casual approach for de Cavel, who first came to Cincinnati to head up the Maisonette, a restaurant synonymous with fine dining in the Queen City. The restaurant's focus is on hamburgers on American buns or French bread with a variety of toppings along with macaroni and cheese and other sides.

A new restaurant from a group with roots in Covington is now open in the former Alto Pizza Kitchen space adjacent to Braxton Brewing Co.

 

Parlor on 7th opened mid-August at 43 W. Seventh St. in Covington as part of the $67 million Duveneck Square mixed-use development. Flip through the photos for a look at its menu.

 

Josh Rhodes, owner of Molly Malone's Irish Pub & Restaurant in Covington, is part of the group that opened Parlor. He told me that the restaurant is a love letter to the Northern Kentucky city.

Completely renovated Oakley bar reopens

 

A longtime Oakley pub is unveiling its new look – and menu – tonight after an extensive renovation by its new owners.

 

The Establishment was taken over by brothers Troy and Brendan McAndrews, owners of McAndrews Glass, in February. They closed the bar at 2900 Wasson Way, which has called Oakley home for 35 years, on June 17 for renovation and are hosting its grand reopening on Sept. 20. Flip through the photos for a look inside.

 

Troy McAndrews told me that the Establishment previously had a reputation as an aggressive drinking bar. He and his brother wanted to shake that image, turning it into a family-friendly restaurant and pub along with a dog-friendly patio.
