Featured Audio

Ohio shuttered its restaurants in mid-March to prevent the coronavirus from spreadying. Since then, many have survived by transitioning to takeout only, others closed temporarily and hope they can survive in the pandemic era.  This week, restuarants can open patio seating and next week, full on premises operations. What will the new world of dining look like for restaurants and for patrons?  We'll visit with a number of local chefs and restauranteurs about how reopening will progress and how the pandemic has changed their business, perhaps forever. And we had planned on providing details on reopeing child care centers, but Governor Mike DeWine said yesterday he needs more time to devise a plan.
