A new restaurant is slated to open at 1400 Race Street in the Saengerhalle building by early November. Zula Restaurant & Wine Bar is a “modern, relaxed restaurant” that focuses on pairing great wine and craft beer with its eclectic menu. Chef and owner Tsvika (Vik) Silberberg shared with the OTR blog a few of Zula’s special features including:
- A large communal table with an adjacent chef station where chefs will prepare all cold tapas in front of the guests much like a sushi station
- State of the art, large wood-burning oven that will produce an array of unique food items including specialty flat breads
- Mussel bar
- Open kitchen
- Enclosed patio
According to this November 2002 Cincinnati Magazine story, the Israeli-born Silberberg has worked and trained in Paris, Milan and San Francisco and has served as the executive chef and general manager of The Celestial and Rookwood Pottery Bistro.
