New Restaurant Coming to La Place

Find out what's coming - and when you can enjoy their fare

A local restaurant proprietor will add a new "simple, classic American grill" in Beachwood's La Place.

The Cedar Creek Grille, owned by Lindey's Restaurant Group, will open by September, owner Rick Doody told the Planning & Zoning Commission at Thursday's meeting. 

The Commission voted unanimously to approve Doody's preliminary site plan, which includes renovations and an expanded patio in the 6,200-square-foot space that housed until early this year.

Doody and his family have owned Lindey's Restaurant and Bar, an upscale new-American restaurant and bar in Columbus, for 30 years. 

His day job is as the chairman of a successful restaurant group that founded a national upscale restaurant chain, but he added that this is an unrelated venture - his family has "no interest" in making the Cedar Creek Grille a chain.

"It's a great market. We know the market well," said Doody, who hails from Hunting Valley.

Doody described the menu as simple and fairly limited: grilled fish, ham and cheese sandwiches. They'll be open for dinner seven days a week and possibly weekend brunch.

Do you think the Cedar Creek Grille will be a good addition to La Place? Tell us in the comments!

One comes as another one goes - heard last nite that Hiroshi's is closing Saturday. Lindey's was always a favorite from Columbus, an institution there! Wish them the best of luck and look forward to their opening.

If its anything like Lindey's, it will be a welcome addition to Beachwood! I am delighted to try it and cannot wait for the opening!

Hey, Michael! We hadn't heard anything about Hiroshi's - but I have a call in to them to find out if this is true, and we'll let you know as soon as we find out. Thanks for the tip!

I've never tried Lindey's, but I've heard good things. I'm excited to try the patio - it will be big, and they hope to open before it gets too cold to use it!

well you must of been the only person that went to the place cause they closed. I went to the soft opening last night and the food and service was great. THe service was right on point, our server Jeff was very well versed on the menu and made a great wine selection to go with our meal. On your visit there I highly suggest asking for him to be your server.
