Maisonette To Move

Five-star restaurant will move from downtown

Cincinnati to suburb One of Cincinnati's best-known restaurants will be relocating.

An owner of the Maisonette said today that he will move the five-star restaurant from downtown Cincinnati to a new spot in suburban Kenwood. The Maisonette has operated for 56 years in downtown Cincinnati, but ownership says that business is dwindling there. The owner Nat Comisar said he will construct a building in Kenwood and open there in the fall of next year.

In the meantime, the Maisonette will operate in its current spot. Comisar had also considered moving the Maisonette to northern Kentucky, but was unable to work out an agreement. Comisar's grandfather - also Nat - opened the Maisonette in 1949.

It has won the Mobil Travel Guide's five-star rating for 41 consecutive years. That's longer than any other restaurant in North America.
