Inside Mariemont's Sophisticated Seafood-Centric Eatery The Emery

Looking Glass Hospitality Group — the team behind TAHONA Kitchen+Bar, S.W. Clyborne Provision & Spirits, Fretboard Brewing & Public House and Toast & Berry — opened their latest restaurant in December 2020 in Mariemont Square. Described as a "polished-casual" restaurant, "the menu is seafood-leaning but also includes fare from the garden and farm," says a release. The 5,800-square-foot eatery features a second-floor dining room and cocktail lounge with a first-floor pub and outdoor patio. It also features a saltwater aquarium as a "centerpiece" on the second floor. Paul Miranda, recently corporate chef for Eddie Merlot’s Prime Aged Beef and Seafood, serves as executive chef, with menu development assistance from VP of Culinary Will Wadsworth and Corporate Development Chef Mark Bodenstein. Dishes listed on the current menu include hamachi crudo, beet and mushroom tartare, crab-crusted Lake Erie walleye, clam chowder, cauliflower steak and shrimp tagliatelle. There's also a petite menu of desserts including gluten-free donut holes with caramel and chocolate sauce. The Emery says everything is made in-house with a focus on sustainable sourcing. “We know where all of the seafood comes from and will never serve anything that’s overfished or out of season," says Wadsworth. The eatery also offers a large wine list, signature cocktails and local craft brews. The Emery is located at 6914 Wooster Pike, Mariemont. Reservations can be made online at EmeryMariemont.com or via the RESY app.
