Carvers Steaks & Chops at 1535 Miamisburg-Centerville Road (Ohio 725) in Washington Twp. and Jay’s Restaurant at 225 E. Sixth St. in the Oregon District in Dayton — two restaurants that are dinner-only establishments for 11 months of the year — will open for lunch during December to accommodate holiday get-togethers, office parties and other seasonal gatherings.
