OnSite Retail Group finalizes lease on prominent corner in East Walnut Hills

January 9, 2024

JANUARY 9, 2024 – The Main & Main corner of the East Walnut Hills neighborhood of Cincinnati is getting new life – mornin’ and night.  Christian LeDuc and Abby Miller of the Cincinnati Business Courier reported last week that a former bank building and the former home of Branch restaurant in East Walnut Hills will soon be home to a new Southern-style breakfast and brunch restaurant.


As reported by LeDuc and Miller, “Kenwood’s 6 ‘N The Mornin’ is relocating to the heart of the neighborhood in the spring of 2024. The space, located at 1535 Madison Road, used to be home to Branch, which shuttered in October 2023. Owner Trey Graham, of 6Enterprises, hopes that the new 6,582 square-foot restaurant will be a better spot for his employees and customers.”


Graham has been operating at his current space in a 1,200 square foot space in Shoppes of Kenwood at 7714 Montgomery Road, since opening in July 2022.  Graham’s success in Kenwood caused him to quickly outgrow the original location.  LeDuc and Miller wrote, “The bigger kitchen will allow him to expand his menu. He plans on adding steak and eggs and lamb chops, along with mimosas and other cocktails for customers to enjoy in a sit-down setting.  His vision for the space extends beyond Southern comfort food. Graham wants 6 ‘N The Mornin’ to reignite the movement for Black-owned businesses in the area.”


6 ‘N The Mornin’ will operate in the top floor of the building, while Graham is planning a nightlife concept in the basement level, though he wasn’t quite ready to reveal any details wanting to make it a surprise to his guests.


The space was being marketed for sale or lease by OnSite Retail Group’s Josh Rothstein.  LeDuc and Miller explained, “Rothstein believes the East Walnut Hills revitalization effort has hit a new level now that the space is leased. Tropical taco restaurant Solstice and Fix Coffeehouse & Bar are two of the latest concepts to open in the neighborhood.”


“Over the last year, the Walnut Hills area has been resurging with activity, and now that this landmark building on its main corner has been leased, the retail and restaurant landscape has officially been revived,” Rothstein said.
