FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 6/21/16- Geneva, OH closes street to host birthday dinner August 15, 2016

GENEVA, OH: Historical Geneva, OH will be closing part of its downtown area to host Dinner on Broadway as part of the 150th birthday celebration for the city.

The five course dinner, paired with Ohio wines, will take place on Monday, August 15th at 7:00pm , in the middle of N. Broadway. The dinner is $85.00 per person plus tax. Tickets can be purchased by phone (440-466-8668) or in person at The Lakehouse Inn & Winery (5653 Lake Rd. East. Geneva, OH).

A portion of the proceeds received from the dinner will go to the Community Improvement Corporation (CIC) of Geneva, OH. The CIC has played a very important part in the growth of our city. “CIC has continued with various projects throughout the years to enhance the quality of life of the citizens and to promote the area as a great place to live. Any funds generated by this event will be designated to the north east off ramp project at I-90 presently underway,” Tony Long, President of the CIC.

The dinner will be hosted by Crosswinds Grille at The Lakehouse Inn (Nate Fagnilli), with the assistance of chefs from Bascule Bridge Grille (John Senger) and Briquettes Smokehouse (Nate Rockwell). For this event the chefs will be serving foods that are sourced within 50 miles of the center of Geneva, OH.

Nate Fagnilli has a passion to support local. “It just makes sense! Ashtabula, Lake and Trumbull counties have always had a huge agricultural background and produce a lot of food that is shipped to Cleveland. Five years ago I made it my mission to impact local agriculture and buy as much as I could year round. There are many local farmers that need our support.“
The one thing that Crosswinds Grille and the CIC have in common is the support of our local community, which makes this event a perfect match. “We are really looking forward to this event. Not only do we get to showcase the local farmers that we use and work with on a daily basis but we get to showcase all the work that the City of Geneva and the CIC have done to the downtown area. It’s going to be an amazing event,” Amber Sironen, Off-site event coordinator for Crosswinds Grille at The Lakehouse Inn.

Crosswinds Grille is the area’s premier upscale casual, new American dining, Farm-to-Table restaurant. Crosswinds Grille opened in 2004 and expanded to the current building in May of 2012. The fifty seat, lakefront restaurant is open year round, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Crosswinds Grille is located on Rt. 534 North, off of Rt. 90.

The Community Improvement Corporation of Geneva (CIC) is a 501 (c )(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to the maintenance and improvement of the quality of life in the Geneva community. Their main focus is to promote economic development, housing renovation, downtown revitalization, and new housing projects.
