We’re going to have another great restaurant in the ‘hood. All of us have really missed Simone’s – such a great gathering place, great music, great food. Better management would have helped.
As the new owner, Travis Maier, says “You have to pay your taxes and you have to pay your suppliers.”
He’s got that right, and it sounds like he’s got a lot of other stuff right as well – the restaurant will bring Spanish tapas to Walnut Hills, with a focus on food, atmosphere and service.
Great-grandson of Frisch’s founder, Travis has been cooking since age 6 – he’s now 23, and has already worked in several restaurants, including one in San Sebastian, on the Atlantic coast of Spain. So he knows whereof he cooks!
Good luck to you, Travis! The neighborhood is ready.
