Furthermore, Lachey's noted they weren't getting enough of a lunch crowd.  I had no idea they had lunch *shrug*.

They should never have been open for lunch on weekdays.  Just not enough businesses are up there to support that.

I work on Central Parkway and there are just so many better options than Lachey's for lunch within walking distance. The Nation, for one, is almost always packed for lunch.

I live and work nearby, and frankly never new Lachey's even served food.  I thought it was just a bar, and it always seems busy on nights and weekends.  I never went, because it is just not my kind of crowd.

Oh well, it seems a lot of businesses come and go and nothing is immune to a business model that isn't ideal.  It seems especially with really large spaces that they run into trouble.

I think for OTR they need to concentrate on adding more offices which it seems they are doing to up the daytime crowd.  I know they just opened that large marketing office but they need to add much more because the daytime crowd in OTR is pretty dead while the opposite in downtown, then it flips around the other way during the evening.

Agreed. I am hoping that the 15/Vine and Streitman Building (12/Central) get filled quickly...and not from poaching office users downtown but adding from outside the core/region.

Sandwich shop returning to downtown

A sandwich shop specializing in healthy, rolled sandwiches, which some may call wraps, is returning downtown next month after closing all of its eight Cincinnati-area locations.

Xavier University grad Anthony Campbell is bringing Roly Poly Sandwiches back to downtown Cincinnati at 134 W. Seventh St. in mid-March. Roly Poly first opened in U.S. Bank Tower in 1999 and at one point had eight local locations before closing all of them.

Boomtown Biscuits & Whiskey sets opening date, and we've got your first look inside



A restaurant inspired by America's westward expansion and the biscuits that fueled the gold rush is opening soon in Pendleton, and we've got your first look inside.

Boomtown Biscuits & Whiskey at 1201 Broadway St. in is celebrating its grand opening on March 3. Look through the photos below for a peek inside.

Boomtown has been more than a year in the making. It's a collaboration between two Cincinnati food scene veterans inspired by the story of America's westward expansion, the California gold rush that inspired it and the food that fueled all of the travelers, migrants and prospectors: biscuits.

I really like Joella's food so this should be a great lunch spot assuming they can get people turned around quickly (the one in NKY is a bit slow). Wasn't there a hot chicken place proposed for the Freedom Center a while back? I guess that isn't happening anymore.

Northside restaurant closes up shop to be closer to UC's campus

A Northside restaurant that has operated in that neighborhood since 2015 has closed up shop in order to move to a new location closer to the University of Cincinnati.

Moroccan restaurant the Golden Tajine served its last meals at 3937 Spring Grove Ave. on March 10. It had operated in that space, which used to house Barrio Taqueria, since summer 2017. It originally opened across the street at 3938 Spring Grove Ave. in 2015.

The Golden Tajine is moving to the former Greek Village Cafe space at 2518 Clifton Ave. Owner Maroune Hafdi said he is meeting with the city health department on March 22 and if all goes well, he hopes to open the restaurant after that.

Lucius Q, Pendleton's new BBQ restaurant, is now open; take a look inside



A barbecue restaurant with a focus on live music opens today in the emerging restaurant corner of downtown's Pendleton neighborhood.

Lucius Q at 1131 Broadway St. opened to the public on March 16. Click through the photos above for a look inside.

The idea for Lucius Q originated with Jeff Keate. He owns a Mio's restaurant in Mount Washington and was looking for another project. He roped in former WNKU-FM personality Aaron Sharpe, but they weren't certain what it was going to be until hanging out with a childhood friend of Keate's, Tommy Martin, the chef at Smoq in Fairfield. The idea grew from there, and they brought on Shane Spears, a Texas native, as another partner.
