Two restaurants have opened at The Greene Town Center — and there’s still one (that will be locally owned) that’s gearing up to open soon.
The new Pan-Asian restaurant called Ace Asian Cafe opened on April 20, 2018 in the location that used to be Choe's Asian Gourmet.
The owners are no strangers to the space: they owned and operated a restaurant at that very spot for more than two years.
Also returning to the restaurant is the original sushi chef, known as Mr. Kim. In addition to sushi, the restaurant will offer Korean barbecue dishes along with a variety of Thai and Chinese options. Patio seating, a sushi bar and a full cocktail, wine and beer list are also available.

Fuzzy’s Taco will be located in a relatively new building that faces Indian Ripple Road at The Greene’s main entrance. It’s home to a Mattress Firm store, and was originally going to house the Dayton area’s first World of Beer pub until World of Beer pulled out of the deal in the summer of 2016.

3. Sinful Orchard
Signage has popped up for Sinful Orchard, a locally owned restaurant coming to the east side of The Greene near the Von Maur department store.
Shaine Sullivan, co-founder and general manager of the Sinful Orchard, couldn't be reached this week, but he told this news outlet in mid-February that the restaurant could open as early as April. "We have our local sources lined up with some excellent products," Sullivan said.

On the restaurant's web site, founders say the Sinful Orchard "is not a chain restaurant; it goes beyond the commonplace fare. Specialties will include smoked meats, appetizers, daily specials, happy hour deals, drinks and more. Prepare to be blown away by the vast array of hand-crafted beers, some of which are currently not offered in this area. Wine and alcoholic beverages will also be on display for your consumption."
