CINCINNATI - Jeff Ruby’s year-old restaurant, Walnut Street Grill closed its doors to customers over the weekend, marking the second restaurant under Ruby’s name to close at that location.
Walnut Street Grill, 631 Walnut Street offered its last dinner service on Saturday, June 30 and is no longer open for customers.
Another Ruby venture, Bootsy’s previously occupied the space and closed September 2010. The restaurant closed because it never turned a profit.
The staff of Walnut Street Grill will be relocated to other Ruby restaurants, including a new steak house that Ruby is planning in Lexington, Ky., according to a message posted on the Walnut Street Grill website . The site does not give a reason for the restaurant’s closure.
Jeff Ruby owns seven eateries in three states, including his Waterfront restaurant, which has been closed for more than a year after it broke free from its Ohio River dock with patrons on board in March 2011. No one was injured in the incident.
If you have a gift card for the restaurant, they will be honored at any of Jeff Ruby’s restaurants.
