Cincinnati is about to gain new businesses to its cityscape. As part of the ongoing Banks project many restaurants have begun developing new locations and moving into the city. Just announced is the plan for another high-end restaurant to join the city.
Yard House, which is a chain of high-end and fancy restaurants based in Los Angeles, chose to build a new location near the Underground Railroad Freedom Center. This will make it the 38th addition to the franchise that is steadily expanding nationwide.
Its release date has been pinned for late this year, which will put it across from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse on an 11,000 square feet piece of property. Included in its one story building will be patios and decks which overlook the Ohio River, giving diners and guests a beautiful scene to enjoy their dinner with.
Yard House is known for its steaks, pizzas, tacos and even its salads. Also on their menus are typical classics such as pasta and hamburgers. As part of the entertainment push in Cincinnati, it will include around 200 taps of beers, a keg room and an island bar in the middle.
Its name actually comes from three foot glass containers that are known as yards. These were originally designed in Great Britain during the 1700’s and were traditionally given to stagecoach drivers after their long journeys. Regardless of where it got its name, this Cincinnati business deal is worth paying attention to. The Yard House is expanding all over the nation and is being heavily sought by many other cities.

Before Cincinnati’s business deal with the Yard House, which was pushed heavily by Mark Fallon, a broker with Anderson Real Estate, the closest location was in Chicago, Illinois. More importantly with this business deal, now the Banks retail space is closer to capacity with 87% of the land having already been leased.
Other business deals struck in Cincinnati for the Banks project includes the opening of The Wine Guy, Crave, Mahogany’s, and Tin Roof. Harald Herrmann, the company’s president and CEO stated his excitement for bringing his classic style to Cincinnati that includes fusion cuisine, rock music, and of course its large bar and brew selection.
