Cincinnati CRAVE opens at the Banks

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The newest member of the Banks Project will be opening its doors on Monday.

Located directly across from Great American Ball Park at the corner of Second Street and Joe Nuxhall Way, CRAVE features American Cuisine with a twist. Their menu includes Mediterranean and Asian-inspired dishes, a full sushi bar and an extensive wine list.

This will be the eighth location nationwide for the rapidly growing restaurant concept and its first Ohio location.

"The Banks was a natural fit for us," said Kam Talebi, owner and CEO of CRAVE. "We like the density of it, the fact that it's right across from downtown, with the view of the skyline. It's vibrant, and we feed on that."

The 8,000-plus square-foot restaurant offers private and semi-private dining rooms, and a large adjacent outdoor sidewalk patio that includes a full bar, outdoor dining and a lounge area, all of which are available for private parties, corporate meetings and other affairs; the restaurant is also available for buy outs.

CRAVE will offer a happy hour: Monday to Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

CRAVE will be open for lunch at 11 a.m.
