Chris Tanner, owner of the popular Cheers restaurant in the Heights, hasn’t gotten back to me on details but the town is awash with news that he’s firmed up plans to open a new restaurant at Fourth and Main Street.
He’s reportedly headed to the prime ground floor corner location in The Mann on Main, a renovated department store building with offices and residences, just a few feet south down the block from Bruno’s.
I hear the restaurant will be called Samantha’s, after Tanner’s wife. It will feature upscale American cuisine, served a la carte — a little or a lot of food, in other words.
Creative cooking on the Creative Corridor. More good news for downtown.
