I can’t decide if it sounds like an airline or a cruise ship from the turn of the last century. Doesn’t matter of course, because it’s neither. It’s a new restaurant set to open June 2 across from Nada (where Havana Martini Club used to be). It’s another large & classy chain, by the way, like McCormick & Schmick’s. Of course, I like M&S, but I also hate that there is nothing overly Cincinnati about the place. The curse of the chain restaurant, I suppose.
Here’s the clip from Friday’s online Business Courier:
Downtown Cincinnati’s latest restaurant, Oceanaire Seafood Room, announced Thursday it will open its doors June 2.
The restaurant, which serves fresh seafood in a 1930s-era setting,
will be located in the 580 Building at Sixth and Walnut streets. Its
menu will feature 25 varieties of fish and shellfish, including crab
cakes, shrimp scampi, cioppino and Hawaiian swordfish.
Minneapolis-based Oceanaire operates 15 restaurants nationwide, with a Phoenix site also set to open this year.
