Well, this is too bad. One Restaurant and Lounge in Mason is closing. It was a really beautiful restaurant, and with interesting food, especially for its very suburban location. Sean Kagy, the chef and owner--with his wife Jennifer--said that Mason's work on improving their downtown district is what did him in. It was hard to get to the restaurant -- people had to walk through mud and construction. Business was only half of what it had been, and the projects continue.
He's putting everything in storage, then looking around for another site--still thinking suburban, but perhaps somewhere closer to the highway and with more going on, where he's not the only good restaurant.
Last night is December 31. If you have a gift certificate, use it now.
I hope the beautiful job they did on the former Mason Town Hall doesn't go to waste, and another restaurant eventually moves in. 202 W. Main St., 513-336-0042
