CINCINNATI — Get ready Westwood. Nation Kitchen and Bar will open its second Cincinnati location in the Queen City on Oct. 1.
“It has been a long road to get to this point, but we are finally ready to break ground and bring Nation Kitchen & Bar to Westwood,” said Andrew Salzbrun, restaurant co-owner, said in a press release earlier this year.
Salzbrun originally hoped to have the new Nation restaurant opened inside the decommissioned Engine 35 fire station located on Junietta Avenue in Westwood by July. The coronavirus pandemic pushed back that timeline.
Cincinnati’s Department of Community and Economic Development announced in June 2018 that Nation had won a bid to redevelop the decommissioned 35 fire station.
Nation Kitchen & Bar opened its first location at 1200 Broadway St. in Pendleton five years ago.
The new location will serve the same menu of beverage and burger options that made it the “best burger in Ohio” according to food website Thrillist.
When Nation Westwood opens it will do so with outdoor seating and carryout window only. Indoor dining will follow shortly thereafter.
