Over-the-Rhine’s source for homemade Chinese-style steamed buns, Boombox Buns, is set to close this weekend.
Owner Nathan Friday announced in a social media post last week that the shop would be closing this Saturday, Feb. 19.
“It's hard to express the emotions of letting go of something that has been such a dominating force in your life,” the post reads.
Friday made his debut as a restaurateur when he opened Boombox Buns for weekend-only, walk-up-window business on Woodward Street in an empty space behind The Takeaway Deli and Grocery in the fall of 2018. And in 2020, he opened the brick-and-mortar on Republic Street.
“Lastly I would like to thank all of our customers and staff both past and present for supporting us every step of the way,” the post continues.
Over 100 fans of Boombox’s delicious steamed buns left comments under the post saying they are going to miss this little Over-the-Rhine spot.
Boombox Buns is located at 1400 Republic St., Over-the-Rhine. Get 'em while you can.
