The Yard House, the newest restaurant at The Banks, is set to open its doors at 11 a.m. Sunday. With 160 beer taps and an extensive menu of American fusion cuisine, it will serve lunch, dinner and late-night snacks.
I stopped by on Tuesday for a sneak peek. It’s a huge space, with seating for 514 inside and another 199 on a nice outdoor patio, with views of Paul Brown Stadium and the Roebling Bridge. A keg room runs the length of the building; beers flow from those kegs, through silver tubes on the ceiling and to the center bar’s taps. It’s a cool setup, and it adds to the contemporary feel of the space, which has dark wood tables and chairs and abstract murals. Take a look (use your mouse to move the image for a 360-degree tour):
I didn’t get a chance to taste any of the food, but it looked good. Some of the options:
Moo shu egg rolls: chicken, chili cream cheese, carrots, green onions, cilantro, spinach with apple ginger plum sauce
Miso glazed sea bass with bok choy, carrots and edamame over jasmine brown rice
Chopped salad: Avocado, tomatoes, bacon, corn, cilantro, cucumbers, celery, onions and bloody mary vinaigretteFull Article
