Kate Zaidan, the owner and operator of Dean’s Mediterranean Imports, is opening a new concept at 4024 Hamilton Ave. in Northside.

Some of Findlay Market’s flavor will soon be making its way to Northside.

Kate Zaidan, the owner of the market’s Dean’s Mediterranean Imports, is slated to open a new eatery at 4024 Hamilton Ave.

Zaidan says the storefront won’t be a replica of Dean’s — or like anything that currently exists in Cincinnati.

“Our new concept will transport our customers to our ancestral home of Lebanon where delicious food and hospitality reign,” she says in a release. “We will be curating a culinary experience unlike anything else in Cincinnati, reminiscent of the ancient souks of the Middle East.”

Construction is scheduled to begin soon, with a goal of opening by summer 2023.

The Lebanese-inspired spot will help anchor the building, which is being redeveloped by NEST, Northside’s community redevelopment corporation. Sarah Thomas, NEST executive director, says they will be renovating the structure and leasing 5,000-square-feet of commercial space. 

“NEST is thrilled to announce its first retail investment in Northside’s business district in our nearly 25 year history doing redevelopment work in the neighborhood,” Thomas says in the release. “Partnering with Kate — a Northsider and an operator of an
established local brand — to expand her dining and retail offerings is an incredible opportunity we couldn’t pass up.”

NEST says funding through the city is set aside to help “in the tenant buildout of the storefront and outdoor dining space.” Both the second and third floor will also be available for lease.
