After 14 years, Frisch's reopens downtown restaurant with new menu items

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - An iconic Cincinnati restaurant is returning to downtown this week.

The city is declaring Tuesday "Big Boy Day in Cincinnati" in honor of Frisch's newest restaurant that will officially open to the public at 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The company closed their Sixth Street location 14 years ago in 2004.

The new restaurant is diagonally across from Fountain Square on the first floor of the Carew Tower and is about 4,000 square feet.

Frisch's says the new location will feature new menu items including grilled teriyaki chicken, grilled barbecue chicken, lemon pepper baked fish and traditional fish & chips.

They'll also offer grab and go options like salads and wraps. Breakfast will be served all day.

The restaurant will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends with extended hours during major downtown events.

Officials say free wi-fi is also available, making the new restaurant makes a great spot for business meetings.

"As we continue to celebrate our heritage, we are excited to once again be a part of the downtown community," Frisch's CEO Jason Vaughn said back in 2017. "Fountain Square is a vibrant part of the city and a family-friendly destination for residents and visitors. We are looking forward to serving our customers where they work and play."

The business was originally expected to open in February.
