  • Joey's Italian Restaurant Coming to Cleveland Hts.

Joey's Restaurant to open in Cleveland Heights. The new location is in the space formerly known as Jimmy O'Neill's Tavern at 2195-2197 Lee Rd., in the Cedar-Lee area.

Not sure if this is meant as a tip of the hat to O'Neill's, but the tentative opening is set for March 17th, St. Patrick's Day. Should they luck into good weather that day, the glass facade planned for the front of the building will be open onto the outdoor eating area. City Council approved a $50,000 loan to the building's owners for kitchen equipment and buildout.

The original Joey's Restaurant owned by the Leonetti's opened in Chagrin Falls in 1981. The restaurant was gutted by a fire in Nov. 30, 2011. They planned to reopen but had their lease terminated. The family proceeded with plans to open a Solon location, which opened in December 2011. The Leonetti's also announced in August, they had signed a five-year lease to reopen in Chagrin Falls on West Orange Street. Plans are to have the Chagrin Falls location open in May.
