Hamilton will have its share of restaurants opening in the next 12 months, serving up everything from sushi and tapas to burgers and beer. Here’s a look at five of the new businesses set to open this year.
The new Asian-American “gastro-pub-esque” restaurant is working to open as soon as possible at 241 High St. in the former Ryan’s Tavern and continues to sell gift cards for its yet-to-be-announced debut.
The establishment is part of a northeastern Ohio group that operates three Basil Asian Bistro restaurants.
Tony Ly, the restaurant’s operator, previously told the Journal-News that Basil 1791 will feature “a predominantly pan-Asian menu,” including sushi, “a lot of play-offs, with a lot of Asian-influenced things” and even familiar dishes, such as hamburgers.
Quarter Barrel Brewery & Pub
Quarter Barrel Brewery & Pub, based in Oxford, continues renovation efforts of a building at the southwest corner of Main and B Streets.
Located in the city’s growing Main Street entertainment district, the restaurant will offer rooftop dining overlooking the Great Miami River and Hamilton’s downtown.
Quarter Barrel’s biggest sellers are a farm-raised burger and large flat breads called Lavosh. It also offers traditional American “up-casual bistro pub fare,” and comfort food, with nightly specials.
Those who wish to apply for a job at the new location may email their resume and availability to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Roll On In
The owners of a new local sushi burrito franchise plan to open a downtown Hamilton location in March.
Roll On In is expected to debut by March at 102 Main St., the former site of J. Austin’s Riverbank Cafe, a restaurant that closed in September.
Roll On In started in Lebanon in June 2016, adding locations in Loveland and Clifton thereafter.
The non-traditional business operates off a “build your own” template in which guests opt for a burrito, bowl or salad, then choose one, two or three proteins, including tuna, salmon, chicken, gyro, shrimp, crab or tofu, followed by fillers and toppers.
Tano Bistro & Catering
Tano Bistro & Catering is working to open in Hamilton this July at a high-profile spot at the corner of Dayton Street and Riverfront Plaza.
Located in the first floor of The Marcum, a new mixed-used development combining 103 high-end apartments and first-floor commercial space, the restaurant will feature a seasonally changing tapas-style menu with daily specials that have a focus on fresh, high-quality, locally sourced ingredients.
The Casual Pint
The Casual Pint plans to open in Hamilton in July 2018 on the first floor of The Marcum Apartments in downtown Hamilton.
The business will offer 30 beers on tap and hundreds more on carry-out shelves, along with a variety of wines and a limited food menu.
Expert “beer-tenders” will serve craft beer by the pint from the tap wall, by the can, or by the bottle for customers to enjoy in the store. Growler fills, Mix-a-Six Pack out of bottle and can selections from the cooler or dry shelves, and kegs will also be available to go.
