After temporarily closing its doors to diners, Cincinnati's beloved frontier food joint Boomtown Biscuits & Whiskey has announced the reopening date for its dining room.
The Pendleton eatery will officially reopen to dine-in visitors on Wednesday, June 10 with new hours "for the foreseeable future" from 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sundays. The dining room will feature limited seating and they will be accepting guests on a first-come, first-served basis.
The biscuit spot closed to the public on March 18 due to the coronavirus pandemic and the health guidelines put in place by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. They began serving carry-out meals mid-May and welcomed diners to enjoy take-out on the restaurant patio.
While the dining room was closed, the establishment — well-known for its buttery layered biscuits — changed its recipe to offer a more efficient product that's still packed with the familiar flavor Boomtown lovers admire.
"Instead of the delicate layers of a light and hearty biscuit, we have a crispy exterior hiding a fluffy, buttery interior. The classic Boomtown Biscuit took a lot more heart, soul, and muscle to keep up with the demand we graciously supplied. The Drop Biscuit is the same recipe, just a different execution. To keep it Boomtown: 'Different path, Same Destination'," a Facebook post from the restaurant explains.
Boomtown chef and owner Christian Gill also kept busy with a Facebook video series where he highlighted recipes and local restaurants, dubbed Feast Mode 513.
