Over-the-Rhine is gearing up for a restaurant renaissance. Maureen Godshall, current operating partner of Neon's, and Michael Spalding and Roula David, owners of Vinyl, last week announced plans to convert Neon's into Jardin Wine and Tapas Bar. The new restaurant is slated to open by the end of May. Jardin will feature an outdoor wine garden offering a wide assortment of imported and domestic wines by the bottle and glass and a menu of traditional Mediterranean tapas, as well as skewered meats and imported cheeses. Jean-Robert de Cavel also announced plans to open a restaurant on Vine Street near 12th similar to his Greenup Café. Enzo's coffee shop has already moved into the area on Race Street. The coffeeshop serves breakfast sandwiches, a full line of coffee drinks and soups, salads and sandwiches such as a Cuban sandwich, Tuscan turkey on foccacia and curried chicken salad.

Several other new restaurants are also in the works. The Spicy Pickle is coming to Clifton April 15. The Denver-based chain offers sandwiches, panini and thin-crusted pizzas. Sean Daly, the former chef at Tink's Café, and his father Robert are teaming up to launch Hugo in the space that once housed Pho Paris in Oakley.

Sean Daly, the former chef at Tink's Café, and his father Robert are teaming up to launch Hugo in the space that once housed Pho Paris in Oakley. The restaurant is named for the 1989 hurricane that destroyed many restaurants in the Charleston, S.C., region and will offer upscale Southern cuisine. Jim Cornwell, formerly of Tink's and The Maisonette, is set to be chef de cuisine. And sometime later in the year the Oceanaire Seafood Room will be docking downtown in the 580 Building at Seventh and Walnut streets. The upscale chain offers steaks and seafood in décor reminiscent of a 1930s ocean liner. ...

There are also a few closures to note. Downtown lost one of the city's true vegetarian restaurants when Manna Vegetarian Deli closed in March. Brinkley's Restaurant & Lounge in Norwood abruptly shut its doors last week. ... Boca will be open for Easter Brunch Sunday April 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (reservations are recommended).
