One legendary restaurant site, will turn into another legend this winter. The site of the new Cassano’s / London Bobby Fish & Chips will be at 4029 N. Main St. in Dayton. Food Adventures has learned that the site will not only be a new Cassano’s, but they are planning on offering an entire London Bobby Fish & Chips Menu.
HERE’S THE SKINNY:
— The new restaurant is expected to open in the October/November time frame.
— The site is on the grounds of the recently demolished Old Hickory Restaurant at 4029 N. Main St. in Dayton.
— For you nostalgic Daytonians who remember the London Bobby Fish & Chips around town in the 1970’s and 80’s, this will bring back some memories.
— Bringing back the London Bobby brand is a plan that Vic Cassano Jr. had before his passing. The next generation of Cassano family is seeing that vision through as a tribute to him. It is also a great rebirth of a Dayton favorite, and welcome news to many Miami Valley residents.
The new Cassano’s will offer all of your pizza favorites and even cassini sandwiches, calzones and the subs you’ve grown to love. But let’s take a look at what will be a part of the London Bobby menu.
If you can’t wait for the opening, visit the Stroop Rd. Cassano’s location or the store in Trenton, Ohio for your London Bobby fix.
SO .. royal subjects…. Hear ye, hear ye ! Your majesty the Pizza King and Food Adventures announce the patented London Bobby “Must Eats”
FUTURE MUST EATS at THE NEW LONDON BOBBY on N. MAIN STREET.
— THE FISH AND CHIPS : Three pieces of battered fish, fries, two hushpuppies and cole slaw. Splash on some vinegar to make it “authentic,” old chap.
— EXTRA ORDER OF HUSHPUPPIES: Avoid fighting or wishing you had more.. order about 8 extra like we do and watch the hands grab!
— BASKET OF ONION RINGS: Beer battered and cooked to order.
