New downtown Dayton restaurant lays out opening plans, special events


New downtown Dayton restaurant Table 33 opens today, will give away free t-shirts each day this week, and will host its first special event before the end of the month.

The first customers of the new restaurant at 130 W. Second St. began lining up before 5 a.m. this morning, Table 33’s owners said on the restaurant’s Facebook page this morning. Only the restaurant’s coffee bar and bakery, which offers a grab-and-go menu, will be open initially, with hours of 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays. The full-service restaurant, which will seat about 100 diners, is scheduled to open in late November.

Each of the first 10 guests through the door every day this week will receive a free Table 33 t-shirt, founders said on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

Table 33 will host a Halloween Costume Contest and fund-raiser from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 29. Tickets are $25 in advance, $50 at the door, and can be purchased at the restaurant. The first 33 people in the door will receive a free t-shirt. Each contestant will go before a panel of judges for a chance to win prizes, and 33 attendees will receive free coffee for a year. The event will benefit the Miami Valley Life Alliance.

Plans called for Table 33 to start out as primarily a breakfast-and-lunch eatery, serving a full lineup of coffees and fresh-pressed fruit juices, Harrison and co-founder Charlie Carroll have said. The restaurant has obtained a liquor license and will open some evenings, particularly on show nights for the nearby Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center, the owners said.

The space previously housed Cold Beer & Cheeseburgers, the Downtown Grill & Cafe, and, before that, the first incarnation of Sidebar lounge. The restaurant space has been vacant since August 2015, when Cold Beer & Cheeseburgers — which operated on South Jefferson Street for 24 years before relocating to West Second Street — shut its doors.
