For the next 5 months at 1061 Miamisburg-Centerville Road, Bar Dumaine (the more casual version of Chef Anne Kearney’s Rue Dumaine) will be open seven days a week from 11am – 11pm, though according to their website food will only be available 11am-3pm & 5pm-11pm. The restaurants 10 year lease official expires at the end of July, and Chef says she’s still exploring her options for what comes next.
After being closed for three weeks for renovations I was invited to join the Rue Crew for the Friends & Family preview night, before they open to the public Tuesday, Feb 21st. The newly expanded bar was packed. The addition of two large screen tv’s, tuned in to a classic black and white movie seemed to frame the bar, which we hear added some draft line to allow for more craft beer.
Additional seating has been added to the east side of the bar with several small tables. Also added, some booth seating facing the bar. Freshly painted in a pale yellow and burgundy, the rest of the dining room seemed refreshed as well.
The biggest change is the menu. While you’ll still find many of your Rue favorites and expanded selection of sandwiches and breakfast dishes have been added and you’ll have the ability to order just what you want, with our with out the side dishes. Looks like about 90% of the menu is priced under $20. Here’s the opening menu:
