Cameron Mitchell Restaurants Announces Plans for New Concept
Cameron Mitchell Restaurants announced plans to open The Avenue Steak Tavern (The Avenue) in early February, in the heart of Grandview at 1307 Grandview Avenue.
The approachable neighborhood restaurant will offer mouthwatering appetizers, steaks, salads, sandwiches, seafood, and pasta, as well as classically inspired cocktails. The wine menu will be a carefully selected collection of Old and New World Wines.
The Avenue encompasses a 4,830-square-foot space and will accommodate 100 guests in the dining room, 35 in the bar area, and 24 on the patio.
Kristen Luff will serve as The Avenue’s general manager. Luff has more than two decades of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry and has been in the CMR family since 1999. Most recently she served as the general manager of M for seven years. Under her leadership, M was honored with the AAA Four Diamond Award seven times.
Jeff Lindemeyer will serve as The Avenue’s executive chef. Lindemeyer has enjoyed cooking since he was a young child and started working in restaurants when he was 15 years old. After earning a culinary arts degree from Pennsylvania Culinary Institute in 2000, Lindemeyer joined the CMR family and has since helped open several concepts. He most recently served as the executive chef at Cameron’s American Bistro in Worthington.
