This November, the team of chef Josh Campbell and Corey Weitmarschen will open Mayberry at 915 Vine Street in Downtown Cincinnati. The restaurant is the second establishment for the team which opened World Food Bar
earlier this year.
Once open, Mayberry will have a grass-roots American eatery menu style including their specialty known simply as "The Burger" - a certified Angus Burger topped with Scott Farm Pepper Bacon, sweet onion marmalade and fried egg on a brioche bun.
The World Food Bar Restaurant Group says that the breakfast and lunch eatery will serve "casual no-fuss food" and offer all lunch entrees for $7.
The 1,060 square-foot restaurant space offers seating for approximately 30 people, with an additional 8 spots outside along Vine Street. Campbell and Weitmarschen also say that the atmosphere will be "clean family fun" that will feature a modern twist in the decor.
"Mayberry is going to focus on the who, what and where of Cincinnati with the efforts of paintings by artist Tomas Englert," said Campbell about the new restaurant space.
The new restaurant will employ six people and be the group's first sit down restaurant.
"World Food Bar was an opportunity to be noticed in the community, but we're looking forward to this new venture," said Campbell. "It is the perfect location in the central business district."
Mayberry will be open Monday through Friday from 7am to 3pm in the former Tom's Pot Pies location (map
