Two local restaurants — usually closed for lunch — to open in December

Those looking for holiday lunch destinations have two options in December from two full-service Dayton-area restaurants that are not normally open for lunch the rest of the year. 

>> This hidden restaurant probably isn’t on your radar yet, but it SHOULD be

Carvers Steaks & Chops at 1535 Miamisburg-Centerville Road (Ohio 725) in Washington Twp. and Jay’s Restaurant at 225 E. Sixth St. in the Oregon District in Dayton — two restaurants that are dinner-only establishments for 11 months of the year — will open for lunch during December to accommodate holiday get-togethers, office parties and other seasonal gatherings.

Both Jay’s and Carvers will launch holiday lunches on Friday, Dec. 1, and the offer will run through Dec. 22 at both restaurants. The hours will be 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
