The restaurant is located in space that previously housed Flyboys Deli.
The first Basil’s on Market bistro-style restaurant opened in 2014 in downtown Troy. The downtown Dayton restaurant, which overlooks the Great Miami River, welcomed its first customers in 2016. A Mason location, currently shuttered, opened in 2018. Another venture, Stone Ground Deli and Locktender, opened in Piqua in 2019, but has shut down permanently due primarily to the coronavirus pandemic.
