A brand new burger joint in East Walnut Hills is sizzling with promise.
Hailing from the owners of O Pie O, Heyday opened in the former pie cafe location on April 6.
Owner Lou Ginocchio tells CityBeat in an email that Heyday will serve up a simple menu “using high-quality ingredients with employees who get the respect they deserve.” Guests can dine in or carry out flattop-smashed burgers and a side of Heyday’s unique hand-cut, dry-cured fries.
Guests can indulge in burgers and all of the fixings in the restaurant's dining room, patio space or across the street at The Growler House, where they can order the full Heyday menu and get it delivered to their table.says that when thinking about opening this burger spot they “set out to make the best burger” and he says the best one they’ve found is a smash burger with American cheese topped with lettuce, sweet onion, pickles and a "special sauce" — all on a potato bun.
Even though burgers are their specialty, if you’re looking for something different, they also offer up hot dogs, chicken tenders and three different pie options as an homage to their O Pie O roots. “We think our pies will go really well with the rest of our Americana menu,” Ginocchio says.
With a total of four entrees and three sides, Heyday plans to stay basic but delicious, Ginocchio says.
“Simplicity and the little things that make good things better are the two ethos that drive every decision we make at Heyday," he says. "Is it simple and is it good is the question we invariably ask when making decisions about our menu, our aesthetic, and our relationships with employees.”
