Chef Dana Downs has created a name for herself with gift for food, opening Roost Modern Italian in Dayton’s historic Oregon District over five years ago, after spending years serving up meals through private catering and private dining experiences. Just over a year ago she opened a second restaurant in Kettering, park City Club which opened over a year ago in the location formerly known as Lincoln Park Grille, by Fraze Pavillon.
“The restaurant industry is ever changing”, says Chef Downs, “with two restaurants, we can internally compare our results restaurant to restaurant to help us deliver a better product with even greater service.
Chef Downs feels that bringing together the brand for which she is most well-known, as well as incorporating the learnings that came with expanded operations can be beneficial for her staff, the customers and the community.
People know what to expect when visiting Roost and Park and delivering consistently on those expectations is our goal.
Effective Wednesday February 15, 2017 we are bringing together the brand made most popular by Roost Modern Italian and will be co-branding both of our restaurants. Roost Modern Italian will now be known as Roost Italian and the restaurant known as Park City Club will now be known as Roost American.
Customers can expect the same great dining experience with improved consistencies in our service, our staff, and the offerings in both restaurants. “We are raising the bar just a bit at Roost American – and giving our customers the items that they have continually requested”, says Chef Downs.
People in Dayton know that they can count on Chef Downs to deliver.
