BlackFinn and Suite opens Friday
BlackFinn Restaurant & Saloon is set to open Friday at 19 E. Seventh St. in downtown Cincinnati. The restaurant, part of a chain that started in New York, will offer an American menu, with lunch ranging from $6.99 to $14.99 and dinner costing $8.99 to $25.99, according to a news release Monday. Formerly McFadden’s, the space has been renovated with an enclosed dining room in front, a pub room and private meeting/dining areas. The building will also house the Suite at BlackFinn, a club and lounge. For more information, call 513-721-3466 or visit www.blackfinncincy.com
Suite and BlackFinn will have a $5 cover charge after 10 p.m. starting March 20, according to a PR rep. VIP tickets for the opening night of Suite are available online or at the restaurant.
The menu looks better than I expected, certainly a step up from McFadden's. The PR rep said there are five locations; the Web site says 12. Not sure whether some of those are under construction or whether she was confused. Ever been to a BlackFinn in another city?
