ICYMI: Yellow Springs restaurant shuts down after nearly decade-long run
Rainey — who has owned and operated Sunrise Cafe at 259 Xenia Ave. for 13 years — said a recent trip to the Caribbean triggered the idea to open a restaurant focusing on the region’s cuisine.
Calypso Grill’s menu will include jerk chicken and other Caribbean specialties, as well as some Colombian, Cuban and Brazilian-inspired dishes such as empanadas and plantains, Rainey said. The restaurant will have a full liquor license and a wide array of rum-based drinks, the restaurant owner said.
