Oregon District restaurant to launch full brunch service Friday through Sunday in late spring

Corner Kitchen, which has been a dinner-service-only restaurant since it opened in 2015 in Dayton’s Oregon District, is gearing up to launch brunch service in the coming weeks, and it will offer a sneak peek of sorts to its new brunch menu this Sunday, March 15.

Sunday was to have been the “Big Hoopla” preview event in the Oregon District, but those events were canceled. Corner Kitchen owners Jack and Natalie Skilliter are sticking with their plans to open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Sunday and offer diners the opportunity to try the small-plates brunch menu. Reservations are recommended and can be made at 937-719-0999.

“We’ll be five years old in July,” Jack Skilliter, executive chef and co-owner of Corner Kitchen, said in a release. “We thought about what we could do with our community to celebrate this milestone, and opening for brunch seemed like an obvious answer.”
