Empire at 138 brings fine dining downtown

New restaurant plans winter opening

IMG_20150917_141127TIFFIN, OHIO – September 18, 2015 – This winter, a new, upscale restaurant will be opening at 136-138 S. Washington St. in Tiffin. Called the Empire at 138, the establishment will bring a historic flair to white tablecloth dining in downtown Tiffin.

“The building dates back to the mid-1800s, when it was part of the ‘Empire Block.’ We would like to bring some of that historic Tiffin feel back to the downtown, and create an elite dining experience” partner Rick Reser said.

Focused on preserving and reusing as many historical architectural elements as possible, Reser and wife Renee Perry, also a business partner, are currently renovating 136 S. Washington, which will serve as the dining room of the new restaurant. The other building, 138, is to house the bar ­— a historical piece from McClain’s Restaurant in Bellevue — which will feature a wide range of cocktails and local beer as well as a broad wine list.

Open for both a casual lunch and an upscale dinner, partner and Chef Mike Pinkston describes the menu as, “classic American fare using organic and as many local ingredients as possible.” There will also be vegan and vegetarian options, as well as high-quality meats and seasonal items.

The Empire joins the developing “grow local” initiative in Seneca County currently supported by area organizations and businesses, such as Grow Seneca, the Seneca County Farmers Market and the Beehive Café.

The Empire at 138 is currently accepting reservations for parties in December. Contingent upon restoration progress, the opening of the establishment for daily operation is slated for January.

Tiffin- All Patriots MemorialIn memory of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, several events have been planned at the Tiffin Police and Fire All Patriots Memorial, located at the corner of N. Washington and Water Streets in Tiffin, for Friday, Sept. 11, the 14th anniversary of 9/11.

Events for Tiffin City Schools and Calvert Catholic Schools students will be held throughout the day, followed by another community event at 7:30 p.m. At that time, the flag will once again be raised to full-mast.

Dedicated in September 2012, the All Patriots Memorial features a a 17.5′ long, 6,268 pound steel beam from the World Trade Center. The 16,000 square foot memorial also contains tributes to the Pentagon and Pennsylvania Flight 93.

Two downtown Tiffin businesses receive façade grants

Total investment with the innovative program exceeds $675,000 in first year

ABR discusses Soni Junction project

TIFFIN, OHIO – September 1, 2015 – Today, the Architectural Board of Review approved Façade Enhancement Grants for Select Realty Group and Soni Junction. The two projects represent more than $200,000 in investment, increasing the number of projects approved to 24 and the total amount of investment to almost $700,000.

The first project approved is a demolition and complete new construction of the Soni Junction gas station and convenience store on the south side, at 260 S. Washington St. The exciting project will place a new structure with a beautiful brick façade on the front, to complement the surrounding historic buildings. The owners purchased the property in 2008 and with the $10,000 grant, they now plan to invest more than $200,000 at the site.

The second project approved is improvements for the new Select Realty location at 23 S. Washington. The company plans restoring the exterior of the building, including scraping, repairing, and painting the front exterior, two front doors and the metal roof; masonry repair; tuck pointing; and new signage. Select Realty Partner Sara Riesen praised the program, saying “We are excited to have invested in downtown. The grant money is a great way to help offset the costs of the repairs we need to do to enhance the building. We are very appreciative.” The building formerly housed Edward Jones Investments and the Bennett Law Firm. It was purchased in June for around $100,000.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz is pleased with the momentum of the Façade Enhancement Program. “Since we created the program last September, 24 projects have been approved, for a total investment of more than $675,000, more than $500,000 of that in 2015 alone. The program is only going to get bigger and I can’t wait to see what else it will accomplish.”
