If all goes as planned, there will be no need to actually step inside of a new Oregon District restaurant to get its food.
Guy Fragmin says Dayton's Landmarks Commission has a approved the patio service window for 416 Diner, the restaurant he plans to open this spring at 416 E. Fifth St.
He said it will expand the restaurant’s service opportunities on the weekend and late at night.
“It is just an obvious step forward in servicing the Oregon District. I am having a blast,” he said.
Rachel Bankowitz of the Dayton Department of Planning and Community Development said it is thought to be the first approved restaurant walk up window in many years, if not ever.
Fragmin plans to offer breakfast, lunch and late-night diner from the building he purchased in 2005 as a retirement investment.
The eatery will specialize in comfort food, breakfast items and lunch sandwiches.
Fragmin also plans to sell West Virginia-style Pepperoni rolls.
5th Street Wine and Deli left the building in late January and is transforming to Canal Street Arcade and Deli.
The Deli is expected to open in late April in the former Canal Street Tavern space at 308 E. First St.
That space was last occupied by The Canal Public House which lost its liquor license just shy of a year ago and evidentially closed permanently.
