3 new businesses coming to Dayton’s Oregon District

Three new businesses — a seafood bar, Mediterranean kitchen and deli/butcher shop — are poised to open in the first quarter of 2017 in the Oregon District.

All three will be located in the Dietz Block building in the 500 block of Wayne Avenue, which currently houses Crafted & Cured craft beer and specialty meats shop. With the addition of the new tenants and vendors, the building will be known as District Provisions, according to a spokeswoman for the Downtown Dayton Partnership (DDP).

The new businesses, according to the partnership, are:

• Glasz Bleu Oven, which will offer made-to-order Mediterranean specialties for carryout;

• Local Hero Butchery & Fare, a butcher and deli; and

• Jack Lukey’s Oyster Saloon & Caviar Bar, a seafood market.

Plans call for adding a vendor later in 2017 that will offer fresh produce, a DDP spokeswoman said.

The partnership, city officials and private developers have been working to extend the Oregon District's retail and entertainment presence to Wayne Avenue.

The Dietz Block building, next door to Wheat Penny Oven and Bar, was built in 1886. Years ago, the space housed Norman Miller & Sons Interiors.
