CINCINNATI -- The Palace is closed this month for renovations and upgrades that include a new menu and new chef, a spokesperson said Monday.
The popular upscale restaurant in the historic Cincinnatian Hotel surprised may this week when it announced it would be closed for lunch and dinner for the entire month of January and part of February.
"We are using this time to refresh and upgrade The Palace," a message on the restaurant's website reads.
Cincinnatian Director of Sales and Marketing Stephanie Lockwood said The Palace is actively looking for a new chef during this transition and will be back with a fresh look and a new menu.
"We're...just closed because we can't be open with new carpet going in," Lockwood said. "(The Palace) will have the same foot prints, just new carpet and upgrades to the wood, marble and paint -- a facelift if you would."
The Palace plans to reopen on Feb. 3, and will introduce its new spring menu in March. The details of the menu were not available.
In the meantime, those looking to grab a meal in the Cincinnatian at 601 Vine Street can go to the Cricket Lounge Bistro, which is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to midnight in the hotel.
