Modern Over-the-Rhine diner Sacred Beast is one of the restaurants that has taken advantage of the city's new plan that allows bars and eateries to expand their outdoor seating into sidewalks and streets to accommodate social distancing.

And the restaurant is reopening today with a bigger patio as a result of a partial lane closure at 15th Street.

The Sacred Beast family is so excited to welcome our guests back to dine with us this Friday, May 29th! We have indoor...

They are encouraging reservations via 513-213-2864 for dinner, Wednesday through Saturday, or for Saturday and Sunday brunch.

That's right: You can have brunch al fresco.

And if you go, may we recommend the omelet.

Here's our (aka my) review from a recent Brunch Issue:

As someone who’s been a vegetarian most of my life, I have a somewhat contentious relationship with eggs. On the one hand, they’re gross; it’s a bird ovum with a gooey center. One the other, they’re a super versatile protein. Scramble them. Make a frittata. Torch them in a crème brûlée. One of the most classic preparations is the omelet, specifically a French-style omelet. Eggs are cooked slow and on a low heat to make them impossibly fluffy and delicious. The omelet at Sacred Beast is honestly one of the best I’ve had in my life — with a slightly wiggly center, an airy, soft texture and no burnt brown skin. The yellow bit o’ heaven comes filled with a ton of goat cheese and bright piquillo peppers, served with a lightly dressed bibb salad. It’s a little slice of Saint-Germain on Vine that epitomizes the excellence of chef Jeremy Lieb’s motto: Simple food. Taken seriously.
