(1824 Coventry Rd., 216-321-7757) in Coventry Village has appropriated the former patio of Panini's Bar and Grill, which closed in mid-March and never reopened. The corporate office confirms that the location has closed for good. Tommy's is renting the property on a temporary basis.
Located across the street, the patio provides an additional 60 or so outdoor seats for Tommy's customers. Diners who visit will enjoy full-service dining, complete with host stand, servers and restrooms. There is no outdoor dining at Tommy's, so this is a welcome development for the 50-year-old restaurant and its many fans.
