MostMetro breaks the news: Natalie and Jack Skilliter are pleased to announce that their planned restaurant at 613 East Fifth Street in the Oregon District will be called, “Corner Kitchen.”
“While we are still a few months away from opening, plans are proceeding. We are describing ‘Corner Kitchen’ as a ‘finer diner’,” said Jack Skilliter, chef of Corner Kitchen. “We intend to provide our guests with mouthwatering updates on many familiar classics. Corner Kitchen will bring a warm spirit to Dayton, a relaxed mood and affordable, farm-fresh food.”
“Our name represents the essence of who we are and what we do,” explained Natalie Skilliter, owner of Corner Kitchen and vice president of vellaINC public relations. “The restaurant will be located on the corner of Fifth and Wayne in the Oregon District and, inside, the ‘kitchen’ will be open and in the middle of the restaurant; thus the name, ‘Corner Kitchen.’ It’s pretty simple. We will feature delicious food prepared with love and entirely from scratch and our flavors and our service will be exceptional.”
