Looking Glass Hospitality Group — the team behind TAHONA Kitchen+Bar, S.W. Clyborne Provision & Spirits, Fretboard Brewing & Public House and Toast — has set an opening date for its latest restaurant.

The Emery is slated to open in the heart of Mariemont Square on Dec. 29. 

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 (the patio will open spring 2021). It also apparently has a saltwater aquarium as a "centerpiece."

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, clam chowder, a pot of mussels and entrees like pan-seared halibut, chicken breast roulade and a cauliflower steak.

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.

There will also be a large wine list, signature cocktails and local craft brews.

“We are excited to be part of the Mariemont community and can’t wait to welcome people to experience Emery,” says Scott Schmidt, founder of Looking Glass Hospitality Group. “This has been a challenging year for the restaurant industry and ending the year with a restaurant opening is incredible.”

The Emery is located at 6914 Wooster Pike, Mariemont. It will be open for dinner Tuesday-Saturday. Reservations can be made online at EmeryMariemont.com or via the RESY app.
