5 new restaurant announcements from February

A Mexican market and restaurant, barbecue and biscuits were among the February announcements of new food establishments to look forward to.

Here’s a look at some of the new restaurants on the horizon.

Coming Soon


Neighborhood Fish & More 

A seafood restaurant with a retail fish market is in the works in the Meadowbrook Crossing retail center in Clayton.

The restaurant and market will occupy about 4,000 square feet of the shopping center, and it will have a drive-up window. It is projected to open in March.

La Michoacana Mexican Market & Restaurant 

The new La Michoacana Mexican Market & Restaurant coming to Huber Heights could open as early as the end of May if all goes well with the final stages of build-out and construction, the market’s owners said.

“We are opening another location thanks to the great response of our community,” said Jose A. Gomez, manager of the La Michoacana #5 store at 748 Troy St. in Dayton who will also oversee the new La Michoacana #10 store under construction at 6220 Chambersburg Road in the Huber Plaza.

La Michoacana stores offer fresh fruits and vegetables, an extensive selection of meats, Latin-American groceries, money transfers, bill payments, authentic Mexican dishes and fresh bread, Gomez said.

The owner of Crossroads BBQ & More has found a new home across town, and he’s moving in sooner than expected.

The former home of the last remaining Cadillac Jack’s Sports Bar & Grill at 1156 Kauffman Ave. in the Skyway Plaza in Fairborn will be the new home of Crossroads BBQ & More, which is currently located at 1888 Colonel Glenn Highway.

Crossroads offers not only the traditional barbecue menu of smoked meats such as brisket, ribs, pulled pork and pulled chicken, but also burgers, wings, subs and pizza.

Tudor’s Biscuit World 

Construction of the Dayton area’s second Tudor’s Biscuit World is on track for a spring opening, its franchise owner said Tuesday, Feb. 26.

“We are looking (to open) in late March, early April,” Tudor’s Biscuit World franchise owner Hank Roysden told this news outlet about his restaurant coming to 124 N. Broad St. in Fairborn.

“The food is really good,” Roysden said. “The biscuits and gravy is our most popular dish, and we serve all-beef hot dogs and one-third-pound hamburgers. The sausage and bacon we get is top quality.”

Reza’s Downtown

The first retail coffee shop for Reza’s Roast, a local roastery, is gearing up to open this spring at 438 Wayne Ave., according to its founder, Audria Maki.

Reza’s Downtown will serve ice cream and a food menu of pastries and savory items, borrowing from her own Italian family heritage and that of her husband, whose family came to the U.S. from Iran more than two decades ago. The final menu is still in the works.

“It’s not as important what the food is — I’m more concerned with the quality of the ingredients,” Maki said. “I care a lot about what kind of flour the baker uses. What’s the use of having great coffee is the food is not great?”
