Indigo to Close, Keystone to Add Third Location
Indigo, the twenty-year old New American restaurant on Dixie Highway in Fort Mitchell, announced via its Facebook page that it will be closing at the end of April:
It is with great sadness from all of the employees here at the Indigo in Ft. Mitchell to announce to you all that as of April 30, 2013...Indigo in Ft. Mitchell will permanently close. The Hyde Park store will still be open with the same menu. Please come visit with us and enjoy the last bit of Indigo before we close. Thank you all for all your years of support for the restaurant and the staff.
Someone has leased the Fort Mitchell Indigo’s, and plans to open another restaurant in that space soon.
“Their lease starts May 1,” Rauf said. “(The leaseholder is) going to do some renovation and will open a new restaurant shortly after that.”
Some of the 20 employees at the Fort Mitchell location may stay on with the new restaurant, Rauf said. Others may go to the Hyde Park Indigo’s.
“We have a really strong clientele, and the majority of our business is regulars,” Rauf said of the Fort Mitchell Indigo’s. “It’s going to be sad to see everybody go, but some employees may stay on with the new restaurant that will be opening at this location.”
Meanwhile, Four Entertainment Group (4EG) announced that it will be opening its third Keystone Bar & Grill location, according to the Business Courier:
“We’re thrilled to bring our popular bar and grill concept to Clifton. The U Square @ the Loop’s close proximity to the University of Cincinnati and its mixed-use residential, shopping and dining development makes it the perfect place for our third location,” Keystone Bar & Grill owner Dan Cronican said in a news release.
The 5,000-square-foot restaurant will have a 24-seat patio overlooking U Square’s piazza, a green space that will be used for events throughout the year. Keystone will have seating for 166 guests.
4EG operates two other Keystone locations, one in Covington's Roebling Point neighborhood and another in Hyde Park. The company is also behind Igby’s, Mt. Adams Pavilion, aliveOne Cincinnati, The Stand, The Sandbar, The Lackman, The Rigtheous Room, and Tap & Go.
