First Look: 23-Year-Old Cap City Fine Diner Reopens After Renovations
The Cap City Fine Diner on Olentangy River Road reopened on Thursday, August 9, revealing the product of its 11-week renovation.
While the restaurant has undergone some nips and tucks over the last several years, this overhaul was the first major renovation for the 23-year-old restaurant. Opened in 1995, Cap City is Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ second oldest brand, just two years younger than the flagship Cameron’s American Bistro.
“We basically renovated from the roof down,” says Dave Moeser, general manager.
Everything’s new — the kitchen, entrance, carpet, decor, booths, tables, and each finishing touch. In all, the 5,156 square foot space can seat 275 people: 200 inside, and 75 on the refinished patio. Now with a hard roof, weather screens, and a heating system, Cap City’s patio will be open all year.
Inside, the center wall has been removed, creating one open room.
Cap City serves up upscale diner fare for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. They’re open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Sunday.
