Fairfield's JUNGLE JIM'S, the popular grocery store known for its selection of international foods, had signed the letter of intent for its long-awaited second store, closer to Cincinnati. The new site will be part of the huge "urban village" to be called Cincinnati Millworks, located in Oakley in the space once occupied by Cincinnati Milacron. Along with Jungle Jim's, the 1.3 million square foot development will house a state-of-the-art cinema, a 175 room upscale hotel, office and retail, built around a three-acre town square. While focusing on the international market, quality meats, cheeses and wines that have made the Fairfield location a destination shopping experience, the new 75,000 square-foot Jungle Jim's "will have a totally different look and feel than the original," states Phill Adams, director of development. "We're going to honor the history of the old [Kirk and Blum] building, keeping much of the original architecture and photos that tell the story." He adds. The new store will open about two years from now.

7 DAYS FOR SIDS is extending the invitation for the third year for area restaurants and businesses to participate in the week-long fund-raising event founded by Chef Jean-Robert de Cavel and his wife, Annette, in honor of their daughter, Tatiana, after losing her to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in 2002. The event has raised over $80,000 for the SIDS Network of Ohio and the Tatiana de Cavel Scholarship Fund, which gives financial support to students of the Midwest Culinary Institute. Some of the highlights include wine tastings, gourmet dinners and happy hour celebrations at dozens of area restaurants and businesses; CHEFAPALOOZA, a cooking and dining event that pairs three world-class chefs with three local celebrities; and a champagne brunch and silent auction at Cincinnati Museum Center on Father's Day.

HENRY WARMAN, the executive chef of the recently resurrected Downtown establishment, THE DINER, has announced the return of the original Diner menu so popular in the '80s and '90s. Yes, yes, yes, Henry's White Crab Chili is back and ditto for the Crisp Fried Maryland Crab Cake Sandwich. With equally delicious omelets, unique salads, sandwiches and Sunday brunch buffet, we're rooting for The Diner to enjoy its neighborhood star status once again. They're not open around the clock any longer; call for hours: 513-721-1212. ... The former Kay's Restaurant (3938 Spring Grove Ave., Northside) has reopened under new management as KAY'S NORTHSIDE GRILLE. Owner Pete Nikolas is serving all homestyle, house-made meals including a weekend breakfast of three eggs, grits, home fries, goetta or country ham and toast for $4.50. "We make our own goetta and bake our own ham," he declares. "Uncle Pete's breakfast is so good, Joe Tucker (of the well-known breakfast joint Tucker's) comes to get his breakfast here!" Look for daily specials on the diner-style menu along with Wild Pete's Chicken Wings served nightly. Kay's hosts a pancake-eating contest with a $100 prize on April 10. Info: 513-681-1480.
