Elsa’s owner: New restaurant ‘won’t look like your parents’ Elsa’s’

The co-owner of Elsa’s Mexican Restaurant has a message for prospective customers of his new cantina-style restaurant in the Sugarcreek Plaza off Wilmington Pike.

“This doesn’t look like your parents’ Elsa’s,” Jason Hemmert said. “And we didn’t want it to be your parents’ Elsa’s.”

>> RELATED: Elsa’s also eyeing a new location in Springboro

Hemmert has nothing against tradition, but the newest Elsa’s, which will be called Elsa’s Corner Cantina, ups the game a bit for the locally based Mexican chain. If all goes well, the Corner Cantina will make its debut in mid-July.

BEST OF DAYTON: Elsa’s wins for Best Margarita

The space at 6204 Wilmington Pike in the Sugarcreek Plaza previously housed Caramella’s Italian Kitchen, and, before that, Murphy’s Irish Pub and Barleycorn’s. But it has been renovated extensively.

The new restaurant will seat 135 inside and another 50 or so on a breezy patio. There are 30 large-screen televisions inside, and another five on the patio, Hemmert said. And perhaps most important: The original Elsa’s “Bad Juan” margarita will be available on tap

The kitchen will start off with a fairly straightforward Elsa’s menu, but down the road, will produce specials that, if they prove successful, will find their way onto Elsa’s menus elsewhere, Hemmert said.

Elsa’s operates four restaurants and sports bars in and around Dayton: the original location on Linden Avenue in Dayton, on Wilmington Avenue in Dayton, on Far Hills Avenue in Centerville, and on East Stroop Road in Kettering.

The restaurant will employ as many as 50, and is still hiring back-of-the-house help, Hemmert said.

Local KFC closes dining room for extensive renovation

The restaurant has been closed since the Dec. 29 fire.

8 refreshing Dayton drinks to help you celebrate World Cucumber Day today

Today, June 14th the humble cucumber will be fêted when World Cucumber Day is celebrated.

Some may choose to slap a few slices on their eyes or on a salad, while several bars across Dayton will be featuring a variety of Hendrick's gin cocktails to celebrate. 

>> Downtown Dayton restaurant closing for good

The popular gin, which William Grant & Sons in Girvan, Scotland launched in 1999, puts cucumber to good use adding soothing flavor to the makeup of the popular gin. 

"Hendrick’s Gin has always held the cucumber in the highest regard. The spirit’s unusual distillation process includes an infusion of rose and cucumber, which yields an extraordinarily smooth gin that is a rare union of lightness and complexity. Not only that, but there is simply no better way to cap off a Hendrick’s cocktail than with a little green garnish cut from the same fruit that gives Hendrick’s its pleasingly unusual flavour," said Rachel Anne Jensen, Ohio Division Representative for Republic National Distributing Co.

According to the Hendrick's website, "Cucumber Day was invented by cucumber growers, in England in 2011, to extol the virtues of the gallant cucumber. For several years now we celebrate this day to hero this remarkable fruit. We wish to spread love, understanding and appreciation for cucumbers everywhere and invite all those with a curious mind to celebrate World Cucumber Day on June 14 to cultivate and embrace their very own unusual side." 

Here are eight places to grab a special Hendrick's cocktail and toast the mighty, green, healthy, crunchy, soothing cucumber.

She wrote: 

“As I am sitting here writing this, I am tearing up. This message is to let everyone know that De’Lish will be closing July 31, 2018 for good. 

My family and I have given this city 8 long and hard years of our lives. We have had good times and we have had bad times. 

It is time for us to move on to try something different. I have prayed over this decision for the last few months. I must say that I have been happier and less stressed out while taking this time off. Originally we were going to open back up today, but instead we will be opening Sunday, July 1, 2018 to give everyone one last month of De’Lish. 

In the coming weeks I would love to hear what menu items my guests would like to see as we will have a limited menu…. 

We would like to say thank you to everyone that has spent one red cent at our establishment. You have made it possible for me to not only take care of my family, but for me to be able to give back to my community which is a true blessing. I will take with me every conversation, every piece of advice given, every piece of constructive criticism and use it to make myself a better person. When my husband came to me with the idea of wanting to open a restaurant I said “NO!” The best thing I could’ve ever done was to listen to him and be submissive to his wants. For that I am forever thankful, grateful and humbled. Running a business is no easy task, especially when your helpmate is gone. I have tried for the last two years. 

At the end of July we will have one BIG DE’LISH PARTY and party like we’ve never partied before! I invite you into our home for one last month, one last time, one last meal.. 

Thank you all for inviting us into your homes, lives and stomachs! 

We will forever be indebted…. 

 

Love Always, 

Jasmine, Evian & Willie III”

Strong said the hot dog bar idea came to fruition for a simple reason.
